I think as a general rule if you think you are delusional you probably aren't because that shows insight into the fact the belief may not be correct. On the other hand my husband has a period before and after a psychotic episode where he is able to question some of his unusual beliefs and check them out with other people.

Are you diagnosed with a mental illness or just wondering if you have one?

Neither of the things you describe sound like they are unreasonable thoughts to me, but I'm no Dr and obviously it depends on the extent that these thoughts are impacting on your life. If you are concerned then the best thing to do is to speak to a Dr about it.

Could be. These thoughts are a bit out there. You could well be delusional.
