How long do these delusions usually last? I'm not sure if I have a delusion but I want to know how long did yours last?

Yours will last until you forcibly change them. Create a new way to think.. something that brings you comfort...your current ways of thinking just strengthen your delusions..its like you're supporting them..

Why support something that makes you feel incredibly bad , and scared..? Those delusions are incredibly toxic to your overall wellbeing. I would create a new mentality.

What you need to remove from your thoughts... if you did that what are you left with?Pixlr_20200712160029253.jpg
That what it looks like without these delusions.. but now that it looks like this I can put whatever I want in there.

Your delusions have complete control over your mood , how you feel , and think! When you remove all that stuff it makes more room for you to think normally.

Wow thanks @EdEd you have really broke things down for me. I appreciate the time you took out to do this. It makes me feel a little better. Maybe it really is a delusion.

It is , to ensure you're thinking in a optimal way you need to change what you think about during the day.

If you're allowing these delusions to interfere with your support systems then they are putting you at a huge disadvantage.

I thought my parents were thinking to me to begin with , they werent and I was wrong...but all I did was simply ask them and they did not know what I was talking about.. made me feel originally like everything was against me.. but I powered through it also.
