I always feel people want some thing from me,
so they plan really well to get them,

I think from past couple of months,
I had grandiose delusion but it been reduced now.

The most common one I have, is the delusion we are all an elite member of a group of people, who gets message from the above and when we share it here, its been analysed and action-ed accordingly.

I had made up lots of stories but cant recollect them right now.
Talking of the above I am bit scared if I go back to those thoughts.

Y’all forgetting about the J man, Jesus. It was funny, one minute I’m like wow I’m god, the next the paranoia kicks in and boom, what if I am Jesus? And then I was scared like no explanation can provide measurement. I thought peoples would gather around me and nail me to a cross. I think the Jesus thing is pretty common. And it is all so funny because it is all based on our childhood, church, god, his son, the repetition, the common belief. The clash: ‘Death and glory ehe. Just another history’

Delusions of grandeur. Specifically, a belief that one is Jesus Christ.

I have voices who say “we are insane” and I realized it more fully yesterday. It’s a good thing to know. It makes you saner. I like that people here don’t dispute the fact I’ve gone mad. Almost every delusion I’ve had was religious. I don’t use drugs, I really couldn’t survive at all, and alcohol too. My medicine doesn’t make me high, I know what highs are like, I’ve been high as a kite. Maybe sometimes it makes me relax but not enough for me to want to abuse it.
