I don’t have any delusions anymore but I used to think a group was out to get me and constantly poisoned me. I guess that was my scariest delusion.

One time when I called an ambulance after thinking I was poisoned, I thought they were taking me to the morgue and were going to kill me. I would not allow the ambulance personnel to strap me down in the stretcher and when they took me inside the hospital, I jumped out of the stretcher. I had to talk them out of admitting me. I thought I had escaped death that night.

There is more to the story, but I don’t feel like getting into any more details. Good enough summary for now.

That’s really something scary.
I get even scared when I see news when people take action on mentally ill people.
Who know is group sanity or individual insanity is insane.

Delusions of persecution. I’ve thought snipers were out to get me before. I’ve thought people were trying to get me to commit suicide. That was probably the scariest.

Tw. A few times I couldn’t sleep at night thinking that the creature from the alien movie is going to bust out of my stomach.

I don’t like to think about it, but the last time I was hospitalized about 20 years ago I thought my life was in danger and my soul was going to be destroyed, among many other bizarre ideas.
I jumped thru the nurses station window and ran to the back room. I was pissing in the corner of the room and rubbing the pee on my body when they took me down. I was strapped down for a couple of days and then had to lie in the seclusion room for another day before they let me out. I was out of the hospital a few days later.
That’s when I made up my mind to be med compliant forever and to make sure I always took my meds.

From top of my mind

When an ambulance was called to pick me up,

I did not want to go in because I believed they were going to cut me into a thousand pieces with a scalpel.

one of the worst delusions is when the devil is possessing anyone at will.

It did mean that i could not trust anyone to be who i thought they used to be

for example, my brother who is my closest friend, his eyes would turn into the eyes of the devil whilst i was talking to him sometimes.

this led to me isolating in my room, out of fear and utter distress

At one point I thought people were reading my mind…makes for intense paranoia.
Now voices telling me horrible things, particularly about death and disease.

I remember when I was taken to the hospital once, and sitting in this waiting room,

I could hear an axe chopping things in the hospital room I was going to go into next. (me hallucinating).

I was scared, I believed they were going to axe me up.

I wanted to escape.

The voice even told me you need to escape the hospital or else my throat will close up until I can’t breathe anymore. Writing this is making me emotional.

I could start to feel my throat close up because the security were holding the door closed.

I also fancied the voice in a messed up way and was self conscious like hell.

I haven’t had any real scary delusions apart from my husband trying to poison me, but the worst was believing that God was telling me I had to drink salt water to purge myself of sin.

I added about 3 tablespoons of salt to a cup of water and proceeded to drink it. I didn’t get very far before vomiting violently into the toilet bowl lol.
