Hello dear. Good evening. I have a weirdest believe that’s really troubling me. I just decided to share it with med zone, maybe you could help me out.
I’m schizophrenic. I was diagnosed last year around June. My delusions have been really frightening to me and I’m scared every moment of my life. The one particular delusion that has been on my neck goes like this: During my secondary schools days, in my SS1, I had a friend who once told us a story. In his story he said that there was one girl who was really brilliant, then one daycare, she was about to read and a guy walked up to her and they started talking. Then she excused the guy to continue her study. The thing displeased the guy and the guy was angry and he swiped his two hands across the girl’s head and took her intelligence. My friend who was narrating the story told us that this was how the guy took away the girl’s intelligence. He then told us that later, probably that same year the girl’s intelligence was collected, during a church service, there was a revelation that the girl’s intelligence has been taken. And luckily for them, the guy that collected the intelligence was in the service. And they collect the girl’s intelligence from the guy and gave it back to the girl. That is the story. Since my SS1 that I heard that story.
My delusion is based on that story. I believe that someone’s intelligence can be taken away from him. I believe that someone can just walk up to me and take my intelligence. This makes me scared and afraid of others even my brothers. Because of this I no longer associate with my peers. I tend to avoid social gatherings. It leaves me paranoid when I’m where lots of people are. I don’t know what to do about it. I miss lectures because I’m afraid that if I go to class, someone might take away my intelligence.
My question to you is: Is it possible for someone to take another person’s intelligence?
Please help me out🙏🙏. I’m tired of being scared of people believing they would take away my intelligence.
Thank you for your help.
