I’m afraid to be home alone because I feel that someone is going to come kill me. I’m being talked about all over tv again and on the radio and I believe someone is going to come kill me because of my thoughts. I’m not going to go to the er because they torture me in the hospital. If this is a delusion can someone help talk me down from it?

I sincerely feel sorry you are undergoing such a terrible time. I have been in a similar situation. What I believe happens is that one takes a most terrible possibility (that oneself maybe killed), and holds to that idea as an existential reality. Rather than seeing one's normal and ordered neighbourhood, and oneself living peacefully there.

As for your belief that that you are being talked about on TV and Radio. This is known as "ideas of reference", and is the product of one's mind.

You need to see a doctor for advice, and because they can give you a prescription for medicine which will help you.

The people were talking about me there and talking bad about me. They were observing me the whole time, bothering me, and making fun of me.
