a warning before we start
i am going to be talking a lot about delusions and derealization. if that is a trigger for you, then please go back to myspace and do not read further.
i suffer from grandiose delusions and derealization. click the underlined text to learn more about each thing.
grandiose delusions are when someone has an over-inflated sense of worth, power, knowledge, or identity. The person might believe they have a great talent or has made an important discovery.
derealization is a mental state where you feel detached from your surroundings. People and objects around you may seem unreal. Even so, you’re aware that this altered state isn’t normal.
i am not claiming to be medically diagnosed. these delusions aren't constant 24/7 but i experience them enough that it affects my every day life. and before you say anything, i am even talking to a therapist about this.
my grandiose delusions cause me to believe that i am a famous singer in a band that's known worldwide. i think i have the best voice in the world.
so, most of what i say when talking about my band is false. the members aren't real. but when i am on this account i believe they are real.
i truly believe i am a famous musician and that i have millions of fans. so, i tend to become a bit conceited and overly confident. i apologize for that.
do's and don'ts when talking to me
do not reality check me
under any circumstances, do not reality check me. that can lead to very harmful situations.
the only exceptions i will make to reality checking me is when i believe i am in danger or you are an extremely close friend.
i do not care how much nonsense i say, do not tell me what i am experiencing isn't real unless it meets one of those criteria.
you are allowed to talk/ask about my delusions
for example, you could say, "hey lark, what's your band like?" what not to say would be "lark, are you experiencing a delusion right now?" that's basically reality checking me.
so, what i'm saying is, it is okay to 'feed' into my delusions. they aren't permanant and most of the time i snap out of it fairly easily.
if you have any questions, please feel free to dm me. just please if you are going to ask specifically about me being delusional, make sure i'm okay with it first. a little "i wanna ask about your carrd." would be nice so i know what i'm getting into.
