Re: is there a chance i could devolope this?
First off Pinkie, there is only one reality. What it is composed of is an entirely different thing. Does anyone know what it is composed of? Absolutely not. There is something called reality concensus, though. As long as you understand what that concensus is then you have nothing to be afraid of when having or entertaining other ideas. What you are afraid of is losing control, so I Guess, from what you tell me...which is fine, but don't let fear rule who you are, what you think, and what you do. You have a family. It is true that you must now live for your children and you must (should) give up a substantial part of yourself in order to serve your children so that they may again serve you later on. If you don't want to entertain other ideas that do not belong to the reality concensus, then don't do drugs. Unless you already have experiences that require you to have other ideas, you probably won't unless you do drugs. If you have done drugs, and you want your reality back the way it was before, then that is going to take work on your part. Maybe a diagnosis and drug therapy is what you need. It's your call.
In my non-psychological laymen opinion you have a privacy issue and that is completely normal to have in this society, and in the age of information.
I really don't know what to say otherwise. Maybe other people have some comments, similar fears and experiences. I'm sure they do. I can only tell you that drugs and poor diets are what make people insane. I think otherwise we are very capable of dealing with stress and anything, really, along with having "alternate realities", different experiences, and different ideas, without hurting other people, losing mental capabilities, or breaking the law.
