Hi, i recently read an article about delusional disorder, i think i have it and would like to share my experience on how it affected my present life.
It started when i began to feel that a teacher is secretly in love or attracted to me, there are times that i”ll catch him looking at me (staring) and i always thought he was somehow hinting…i was not able to keep it to myself and started to tell a friend whom i suspected to have shared it with another and before i knew it i just felt like everyone in the school campus knew about it, this made me withdraw from social activities and started to avoid being seen, i avoided my friends and and only kept one whom i really considered as a connection to the real world, but i never told him about my experience and how i feel.
This is my first time to share this thoughts, until now i still have delusions and at times i would start talking to myself in my mind, but i always snap back to reality and started to do my individual research on how to control this. I just hope this will end soon, i can’t live like this, i always stay in my room, i avoid going out and afraid of being seen. It has STARTED to destroy my social life with paranoid feelings.
I learned that there are different types of DD, and i think i am feeling some symptoms of each type. I hope someone would take time to read this and understand. Thank you.
