• Delusions are actually very difficult to diagnose clinically. A person has to make some pretty outrageous observations that clearly cannot be true. Zooming the lens out to a more general dissociative behaviour pattern just makes it even more difficult to diagnose, and also more difficult for friends and loved ones to detect at the social level. But, spending more time with the person and listening to them will provide more data.

      Interesting. I know that when some people talk about imaginary friends and made up characters, that would make them delusional. I do listen to people but I like to think outside the box and some things they say are delusional and other times they make sense.
