Question?

Hi there,

I put my thread in this catorgory but I know this is not the case but I know people will automatically say it is a psychosis problem. But I put it here so I can get advice from other people who are in the same situation as me & has ways to prove I am not psychotic.

So since early 2016 I have felt & believed very strongly that I am not the normal person. I feel like I have special powers & I can make things happen & also I can’t be harmed as I am unique. Some examples- whilst preparing for our car MOT my husband showed me a video of a car with illegal & legal tyres & he told me what happens when you do a emergency stop with the tyres & I believe myself that if I had illegal tyres I wouldn’t have an accident & I would stop just as well as a car with legal tyres I believe I am special & different & that illegal tyres won’t cause me a accident like it would to a regular person.

I have powers which means I can think of something & I have the powers to make it happen- all my past hospital appts have been pointless & my husband said at my last appointment this will be the same & I said in my head that today will be different appt will be different & I said in my head the appt will be a positive & helpful appt for the first time & my powers made it come true. So if someone says something if I think the opposite to what they said then the (opposite) happens if I agree with that someone then the opposite doesn’t happen.

You see pictures of the weather being bad & then trees falling down on houses, cars & killing people. I know cos I can feel it in my bones that is how much I am sure it is the truth, that is a large tree landed on me, it wouldn’t kill me, I wouldn’t be hurt. Why you ask? Cos I am special. I wasn’t born a real human, I was a baby who was born with special powers & a protective body that I wouldn’t die. The amount of times my consultant has said with my severe physical health that they don’t know how I am still alive with my condition & how I get through bad infections, I know it’s cos I am not the normal baby/human. I was born differently & put into this world as a special & one of person who is not a whole human but something else! I not sure what but I am not the usual normal human.

I am not the normal human.

I went to the seaside this week & on the journey there I had a video in my head of something dreadful happening & then the day after i saw on the news about a car driving into the a restaurant. My super powers made this happen.

Anything I think, my special powers make it happen. If someone said something to me & I thought the opposite then the opposite would happen but if I agreed with that person it would come true.

So in my life, I have some control over my powers so if I want something to happen then I think the opposite to what I want & then it happens, if I think what I want to happen then it doesn’t happen.

So my point of my point is I haven’t told anyone cos I know they will automatically think I am having another psychotic episode & I am 100% not. This is really happening, this is really true, I can feel it 100% in my bones, I know 100% I am not a regular person & I was born with special powers, a bit like Matilda the movie. So cos I am so worried that if I tell someone they are gonna say your are psychotic & that is not the case, I haven’t told anyone. I have a really good therapist & we have a brilliant relationship & I want to tell her this cos I don’t want to hide it anymore but I am worried she is gonna say it’s not real, you might think it’s real but it isn’t blah blah & then say I am psychotic & then increase my meds or tell a psychiatrist or whatever. But I can’t emphasise how truth this is & is really happening & it is not psychosis at all. But cos I have had a psychotic episode in my life they’re gonna say I am psychotic again.

So I wanted to ask how can I tell my therapist about my special powers without her thinking I am psychotic? How can I get her to believe me when I tell her I am not psychotic & that I am just half human, half something else & I was born with special powers & protective body so I won’t ever be harmed in situations that a regular person would?

Any advice please?

You were right. I'm automatically thinking you have some psychosis going on because I don't believe people can be special the way you claim. I think you should tell your therapist about this and be accepting to the recommended treatment.

Sorry but I have to say this is psychosis, don't put your supposed indestructability to the test and especially don't go driving with illegal tyres, not only will you put yourself in danger but could harm us regular humans as well, for that thought alone I would section you.

I am really not psychotic, I don’t know how to prove I am not psychotic , how I can prove to you that my powers are real and it isn’t down to psychosis. If I can’t prove it here then I have no chance of proving to my therapist. I wish I could find a way of showing you my powers at work and then you will believe me that I am special and not psychotic. One way I can show you is I have been hardly sleeping lately and I am still have bundles of energy and never feel tired or have a nap. That is cos I was born differently and the regular person would of had a nap or be a zombie and I am the opposite. I was born with powers and a protective cover on me. I wish I could prove it to you and show you and then you would believe me. There is no way I can tell my therapist this if I can’t even get someone online to believe I am different and have powers. I need a way to prove it? Do you have any suggestions?

Try to read about Grandiose Delusions and see whether you can relate or not?

If you don't want your therapist to think you are psychotic, don't tell him/her what you are thinking.

Not sleeping much and still having bundles of energy is a classic symptom of mania. I think you should see a doctor and tell them everything.
