Ever seen the Truman Show?

That was how I felt all the time....sometimes still do.


Once I got into a heated argument with Fidel Castro via the television. After which several helicopters flew right over my house...That part was not a delusion, but it served to make the delusion even more real for me.


Felt like I was a product of an experimental program about nature versus nurture. Being adopted in the late 60's from a hospital that has documented its participation in such programs has not helped allay this fear.

Sad fact is I could go on and on and on.......

I thought all of TV was about me - and that everyone on TV was implying things whenever they spoke. I have written about my conspiracy before - I may make a thread and publish what it was it like day by day.

I thought the government was poisoning the hot dogs i bought at the convenience store , but only 1/2 of it , so i would eat 1/2 and throw the rest away

there is a fine line between genius and insanity , if you can learn to walk the line , you can rule the world .unfortunately i keep falling into the insanity side

I too thought my parents were not my real parents at one point - weird.
When I was in hospital I had a bunch of strange delusions. Probably the weirdest one was that I thought aliens were coming to take over the world and it was my job to save earth.

That a woman was very special, to be my wife, though she was married and had children, and did not even want to talk to me on the phone.
That I was going to discover something.
That I was getting secret, coded messages from God.
That Dan Rather, a newscaster on CBS TV, was actually talking directly to me with each evening news.

Mine was that my parents were cia agents who adopted me at 1 year old and pretended to be by real parents only to deny that I was their son 30 years later - and then DNA testing could not prove that I was their son (because I was adopted).

Confused?

I tried to explain this and other delusions in the hospital but got strange looks.
