Question What is Paranoia and Delusions... ?

Im newly diagnosed with Bipolar Type 2. Im in state of shock... and speechless. I feel very ashamed.

I was wondering if other members on here could give me examples/samples of paranoia/delusions they experience... even from personal experience.

If you're bipolar II, you shouldn't be having paranoia, hallucinations, and/or delusions. This indicates bipolar I. Consider asking your doctor if you got the right diagnosis.

Yeah, paranoia and delusions is type one. I just recently got "upgraded" to type one because of mine.

I can't give you direct definitions, but I can give you examples.

Paranoia: a stranger I see in a store is following me (but they are not), I'm scared someone is going to break into my house, so I get several locks for the door, aliens are going to land in my backyard.

Delusions: my boyfriend is having an affair with my best friend, there are people watching me through my computer screen, homer simpson wants to kill me, I am a millionare (when I am not)

Hope this helps you. BTW, these are not specifically my delusions.
