I wish it was all a nightmare but it’s not. The tv is talking to me again and I’m afraid for my life. I’m afraid that people are watching me and waiting on me to die.

You are in an acute psychotic episode, this is what my son was describing to me this Spring and I was looking at him terrified that he is loosing his mind and he was trying to explain everything in a logical way but without any kind of reasoning. The more I talked to him about it, the more it felt like he gets entangled. After a while I decided to keep an eye on anything that could be a trigger (I started to imagine what would be to feel, what he feels) for such sensations and I did everything I could to avoid. For example we used to listen to the radio on the way to school, funny morning shows and I realised that he felt targeted somehow by some jokes, by some “threats” so for more than 2 months we only listened to classical music and instead of watching normal channel lineup, I only permitted documentaries about nature. I think it made a bit of a difference so my advise is to stop watching TV, for good! Connect to the nature, avoid any potential trigger, find a new comfort zone and then things will calm down. Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end (this last one is a nice quote I like)

How long was he experiencing this?

Hard to tell, something between 2 and 6 months, at a certain point he stopped telling us what he was going through, but we kept finding his browsing history looking for “signs”.

Oh wow. Did he think he had the cameras implanted in him?

No, he thought that “they” have placed cameras all around the house to watch him.
I remembered now that he was googling things like: “I am listening”, “What do I have to do” in english, even if we have another birth language.

That’s not a real reason to give up on the TV. You should want to do this to improve your situation when it’s clear that this is a “trigger”.
