I have delusions that I am some WW2 hero that died in 1945. I know they are delusions as I used to hear voices and saw things from 1999 to 2000. I no longer hear or see anything, but have delusions from time and time and usually shake them off.
I need advice on how to control my delusions as they seem logically possible.
My family no longer listens to me for help as they completely gave up on me a long time ago.
I have a job but its not easy being mentally ill as people at work have already labelled me as being mentally ill. I realise that I have delusions cause I wanna be more than I am and escape to fantasies.
Surely not easy being mentally ill at work with people who aren't, at least you aren't normal though, that's the last thing that you want to be.
I thought that I had died the other day and what I was doing here was what I deserved, I knew that it wasn't real though, and why it was happening, my brain tenses in pain when this happens, it clenches, feels like it's being sort've squeezed.
And what helps me, it sounds dumb, but basically it's just not believing, because you have no proof and things like that, realizing when you are assuming things and such and so forth. Just being logical with yourself, learning that helps a great deal.
However, this thing that you are talking about happens alot, some people theorize that when this happens to people they are something of a psychic, or have spirits with them that went through these things. There seems to be alot of children that have experiences like yours, saying that they had been somewhere and died and they can explain exactly what happened and give names and places, which sometimes the names and places are real and they can be looked up, and sometimes how the people died is exactly how they died.
Just experimental as always, but does your ww2 hero have a name by any chance, or is it just some ww2 hero and you don't know any names. It might just be worth looking into some things.

Do not let your mental history define you. It's what's you do from this moment forward that matters. You don't have to be MrSocialGuyOfTheYear. These people are your *coworkers*, not your friends -- you are there to earn a living. Just focus on being competent at your job and what you will be spending your paycheck on. Eventually, those people will forget your mental moments and may actually grow to admire your tenacity despite your obstacles.

You are *you*, and that in itself is special. Just be the most pleasant person you can be, and no one else will justifiably have anything bad to say about you.

When things in life aren't going our way, what's wrong with a bit of escape? The key is to know the difference between reality and fantasy, which you appear capable of doing.
I sometimes fantasize about winning the lottery and making every person who has ever upset me pea green with envy. I actually go to websites every weekend and pick out the dream home I will purchase, once I get my hands on that money. I sometimes check out houses in completely different states. (I'm really getting tired of the high temps here, so I assume that's where *that* little fantasy came from.)
Early on, my voices told me they were going to give me 300 million dollars. Of course, I've since learned my voices are pretty much full of crap, but I still hang on to that *fantasy*. The key is to realize it's *fantasy*... Mere voices aren't going to jump out of my head and write a check for 300 million dollars.
Are my fantasies hurting anyone? No. As long as I realize it is a mere fantasy and the odds of winning the lottery are slim, I'm not hurting myself either.
I also read a lot of fictional novels to escape. What are fictional books if not fantasy?? For that one moment, we are transported in time and place into a world in which we do not actually live.
Do you read books? If not, I highly recommend them. How about putting your fantasy to paper? Sounds to me like you'd be able to write a pretty entertaining book.
James; here is something u might do;
look up Ayuvedic medicine; it is from India and u should be able to find some free tests; you take the test and it will amaze u how somehow they can see into your soul but the point to be taken away is there are recommendations as to how to make yourself better and what types of foods etc will make things worse
Candida could be a culprit, check your tongue it should be pink and healthy not covered in a white spots or white plaque/coating, this is yeast and it produces toxins that eat whatever you eat and produce chemicals that wreck your body and produce cerebral allergies. Start with the Candida Connection and many of the natural remedies do work if you stick with the no sugar etc plan.
