Do I have a camera on my head?

I went to register my daughter for school today and everyone was talking about me. I don’t feel a camera in my ear. Is there a camera on my head under my skin or something. The tv is talking about me again. Can someone please be honest with me. Is the tv talking about me? And is there a hidden camera on my body?

How did you get to such conclusion? I think it must be tough for you to have such feelings.
Have you started any kind of therapy to see if you might feel different? Our minds can play unpleasant tricks on us.

Probably not but I was convinced for years (without discovering any hard evidence) that someone had planted a listening device in my home so I can empathise with how you might be feeling about all this. It just seemed odd how certain people could know certain specific things about me but life experience gradually taught me that this can be deduced from observation and assumption rather than outright spying. We live in a much more enclosed media influenced world than we did even 20 years ago and this makes me feel uneasy in general although I have come to terms with it somewhat in recent years.

As for people talking about us, this one has gone on since the beginning of time through tittle tattle, gossip or whatever else you may want to call it. I definitely was on the receiving end of this moving into a small English country village (as are most outsiders) but the info they had on me had been revealed to them by my partner at the time through conversation. As she was trying to boast about my (modest) achievements it made it worse but that is how easy it is to become embroiled. When it came out that she had an affair, I was pretty much the last one to know about it because I have largely always kept myself to myself. I don't want to know secrets and when I am told of them can react pretty fiery. Had I been more sociable then I would have known earlier though and maybe been able to do something to save our marriage which by the time it came to that task it was too late. Food for thought maybe but 25 years later I haven't changed and don't intend to in that respect. We are who we are n all that.

The other thing worth pointing out here though is that it isn't necessarily a negative situation. That is not to suggest it is exactly positive either as it seems, like me, you don't like being talked about very much. I would personally file it under the heading 'People just being people'. It is largely all some people spend their spare time doing; talking about others. That you are taking your kids to school may actually be the most interesting thing going on in the lives of these people simply as they haven't seen you doing it before and by next week somebody or something else will be top of the bill. Still, thank goodness witch trials are a thing of the past because that is how many of them started.

I have been fascinated by this quotation ever since I first heard it as a confused teenager:

There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.

I used to think I had some contraption in my eyes. But my master told me to snap out of it, and continue with my sword training. :confused:

100 percent you do not have a camera under the skin in your head. Don't worry. I know it is hard keeping these sorts of thoughts under control but really there is no camera.

When I was first sectioned over 10 years ago. When a Nurse came on shift I was sure that I could see a camera on his head hidden in his afro. I never said it to anyone as I knew that their response would be more medication.
