    Case of Truman Show delusion - please help.

    This past May, my mother has what we 100% think is the Truman Show delusion. She thinks that we are on a reality television show, and that we are under house arrest, even though we have proved to her multiple times that this is an illusion. She refuses to receive medical help because she thinks that there is nothing wrong with her. She quit her job thinking that she is the wealthiest person alive, and because of this, we need to sell our house, however she refuses to sign. We also think she is bipolar....

    My son has extreme anxiety

    My son has a diagnosis of schizophrenia. He hears voices and has a delusion about mind control. He is 40 years old. Currently he suffers from extreme anxiety and describes it as pain.

    Could it be OCD

    So this is a little difficult to explain but I'll try to make it as clear as possible. Every time I see a number I have to add it up to ten. Like if I was driving and a speeding sign said '30' I wouldn't see a 30 I would see '70' because my head changes the numbers to whatever it takes to get it to Ten. Another example would be when I see a 6 I see a 4. Or when I see '23' I would see '87.' When i say see I don't mean imagine, I literally see those wrong....

    Vulnerability to schizophrenia and marijuana use?

    So I just finished reading an article about the linkage between vulnerability to schizophrenia due to marijuana usage. My father has paranoid schizophrenia which was induced by hard drugs such as LSD, etc. when he was younger. I used marijuana occasionally for a little under 2 months in college and then quit.

  • I'm being followed by a large group of people

    I recently noticed that I am being followed by a group of people. I don't know why. Some are neighbors. Every where I go they are there as well. I'm followed on the streets when driving. Large groups of cars driving in well coordinated patterns. I cant escape from them. I go to stores, the hospital or the airport and they are there. I have made notes of their lic plates, cars and drivers and they always match. They have gotten into my phone, my car, computer and even took control of my modem....
