People with paranoid personality disorder (PPD) have long-term, widespread and unwarranted suspicions that other people are hostile, threatening or demeaning.

No to 1. No to 2. Three is the cure and the charm. There are millions of genetic disorders that are treated every day and people get to lead a normal life, though there is no cure for many. In your case actually you are quite lucky, your underlying problems are anxiety and depression. They are very easliy treatable in your case. You do not even need a psychologist just yet, ask you family physician that you want to try some anti-depressant that will address your depression and anxiety. This will bring immediate relief to you (72 hours) and your urges to tear at yourself will decrease rather drastically. If you cannot even do that for yourself, there is nothing else I can tell you. Just remember it is an illness like any other and must be treated. @Earthquake you are as much a psychology student as "Psychology Mullah" was. LMAO. This time you should call yourself Maximum Exposure. lol

Nonbizarre delusions are about situations that could occur in real life, such as being followed, being loved, having an infection, and being deceived by one''''''''s spouse. Bizarre delusions are clearly implausible. Delusions that express a loss of control over mind or body are generally considered to be bizarre and include belief that one’s thoughts have been removed by an outside force, that alien thoughts have been put into one’s mind, or that one’s body or actions are being acted on or manipulated by an outside force. [ 1 ]

Making a distinction between a delusion and an overvalued idea is important, the latter representing an unreasonable belief that is not firmly held. [ 1 ] Additionally, personal beliefs should be evaluated with great respect to complexity of cultural and religious differences; some cultures have widely accepted beliefs that may be considered delusional in other cultures.

A delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. As a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation , dogma , illusion , or other effects of perception.

Delusions typically occur in the context of neurological or psychiatric disease, although they are not tied to any particular disorder and have been found to occur in the context of many pathological states (both physical and mental). However, they are of particular diagnostic importance in psychotic disorders including schizophrenia , paraphrenia , manic episodes of bipolar disorder , and psychotic depression.

A 90-year-old woman has been a patient of the Beacham Ambulatory Care Center since 2000. Chronic conditions are pernicious anemia, osteoarthritis, and urinary incontinency. She is fully functional and fully independent. She provides care for the homebound husband who has severe COPD. They live in a row home specifically “close to the hospital” to ensure access to house calls for her husband.

In September 2000, the husband dies as a result of respiratory arrest. Her only relative is a nephew who talks with her about once a month. In October 2002, her home is broken into and our patient is raped and robbed. She was taken to a local hospital specializing in rape. Here, she is distressed, delusional, and is reported to be very emotionally distraught.

Not long ago the Bipolar Burble had a commenter ask me about delusions of grandeur in mania as a part of bipolar disorder. She was feeling alone in her experiences and so was hesitant to talk about her own delusions of grandeur during mania.

I’m not familiar with delusions of grandeur in mania and bipolar disorder so I looked it up and I asked if anyone had stories of their mania and delusions of grandeur. Naturally, my lovely readers provided.

Narcissistic personality disorder ( NPD ) is a personality disorder in which there is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance , an excessive need for admiration , and a lack of understanding of others'''' feelings. [2] [3] People affected by it often spend a lot of time thinking about achieving power or success, or about their appearance. They often take advantage of the people around them. The behavior typically begins by early adulthood, and occurs across a variety of situations. [3]

The cause of narcissistic personality disorder is unknown. [4] It is a personality disorder classified within cluster B by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders . [3] Diagnosis is by a healthcare professional interviewing the person in question. [2] The condition needs to be differentiated from mania and substance use disorder. [3]

Despite the pervasive suspicions they have of others, patients with PPD are not delusional (except in rare, brief instances brought on by stress ). Most of the time, they are in touch with reality, except for their misinterpretation of others'' motives and intentions. PPD patients are not psychotic but their conviction that others are trying to "get them" or humiliate them in some way often leads to hostility and social isolation.

People with PPD do not trust other people. In fact, the central characteristic of people with PPD is a high degree of mistrustfulness and suspicion when interacting with others. Even friendly gestures are often interpreted as being manipulative or malevolent. Whether the patterns of distrust and suspicion begin in childhood or in early adulthood, they quickly come to dominate the lives of those suffering from PPD. Such people are unable or afraid to form close relationships with others.

As with all psychiatric disorders, illness anxiety disorder demands creative, rich biopsychosocial treatment planning by a team that includes primary care physicians, subspecialists, and mental health professionals.

This article describes illness anxiety disorder, its diagnosis, and an overview of treatment approaches, with references for details beyond the scope of the article. Finally, the article reviews new developments in psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic treatments.

The Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) Catechism. Narcissism, Pathological Narcissism, Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), the Narcissist,

The character s primary symptom is that of delusions of grandeur - he seems not to have hallucinations, his thought processes are not disorganzied, and many other not s.so the movie does not really depict a realistic mental disorder. He does not seem dysthymic [no pleasure], nor does he seem depressed. Generally, it would be Delusional Disorder: widipedia has a section on this. "Delusional disorder is a psychiatric diagnosis denoting a psychotic mental illness that involves holding one or more non-bizarre delusions in the absence of any other significant psychopathology (signs or symptoms of mental illness). In particular a person with delusional disorder has never met any other criteria for schizophrenia and does not have any marked hallucinations, although tactile (touch) or olfactory (smell) hallucinations may be present if they are related to the theme of the delusion. A person with delusional disorder can be quite functional and does not tend to show any odd or bizarre behaviour except as a direct result of the delusional belief. It is worth noting that the term paranoia was previously used in psychiatry to denote what is now called delusional disorder. The modern psychiatric use of the word paranoia is subtly different but now rarely refers to this specific diagnosis." Wikipedia

Making a distinction between a delusion and an overvalued idea is important, the latter representing an unreasonable belief that is not firmly held. [ 1 ] Additionally, personal beliefs should be evaluated with great respect to complexity of cultural and religious differences; some cultures have widely accepted beliefs that may be considered delusional in other cultures.

A delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. As a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation , dogma , illusion , or other effects of perception.

Delusions typically occur in the context of neurological or psychiatric disease, although they are not tied to any particular disorder and have been found to occur in the context of many pathological states (both physical and mental). However, they are of particular diagnostic importance in psychotic disorders including schizophrenia , paraphrenia , manic episodes of bipolar disorder , and psychotic depression.
