Does anyone here ever get delusions or delusional thinking? Is it possible to suffer from delusions and know that they are delusions? Also, do delusions get more intense or worst over time if not dealt with? I am scared to tell my mental health team that I have delusions because I fear it is the nail in the coffin to diagnosing me with schizophrenia. My delusions are usually paranoid in nature or have something to do with people getting one over on me or doing things to purposely make me mad. Or I have other delusions as well, such as people say things or do things just for me when they don't hahaha. Its hard to explain :p ... If anyone here does have clinical delusions could you please share?

Well here is the thing, I get delusions and I TRULY BELIEVE THEM but then I get moments of clarity and realize it was crazy and I was wrong. But its embarrassing so I just ignore it. But its never severe. NO ONE has ever said I was delusional but I have self diagnosed myself as delusional. BUT THEN AGAIN. I don't think I am delusional because it never affects my behavior, sometimes anyway. One example is I flipped out on my roommate because I swore she had opened and used some of my ranch (dumb, I know :p) because I didn't remember opening it, I thought it was still sealed. Well it wasn't until I was shown and explained too that she didn't do it that I must of did it. I couldn't believe that I did it, it was sooo not true. Well, come to find out I did do it. SO I apologized even though apart of me thinks I didn't do it but I am sure I did... Crap like that. I think I am just over thinking things :p
Thanks for the input :) I just get worried sometimes because I don't have a good grip on my mind most times which leaves me feeling vulnerable to it going haywire
