Have you ever been audited by the IRS? In the grand scheme of things, it’s not the end of the world — unless you forget to report income and claim deductions that you can’t back up in your taxes. But what if that mistake wasn’t your fault? What if it was because you have bipolar disorder? Or another mental illness? Like other illnesses, mental disorders can affect your brain, which can make it hard to remember important details — like income you earned or deductions you took on your taxes — and harder to pay attention to critical details during tax season. The Disordered Mind and Your Taxes
My Thoughts are Delusional – What Should I Do?
It’s possible that you have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or a delusional disorder. A hallucination is generally defined as an intense sensory experience without any basis in reality. But remember that we can’t know for sure unless you’ve been evaluated by a medical professional. We also recommend getting treatment because they are quite common, affecting up to one in five people at some point in their lives. The Disordered Mind and Your Taxes
My Thoughts are Delusional – Why Won’t They Leave Me Alone?
When we are in a psychotic episode, some people may think they have a mind-reading power, or the power to control events. In the grips of delusion, it is common for one to believe that one’s thoughts are not private. One might believe that another person has access to these thoughts at any time. The disordered thinking is often frightening as well as troublesome for others with whom the person lives or works.
My Thoughts are Delusional – Is There a Way Out?
1. Recognize the delusions for what they are.
2. Avoid excessive thinking – your thoughts may have had a lot of time to obsess over a certain subject, even if it doesn’t seem important to you in the moment.
My Thoughts are Delusional – It’s Bad, but Not That Bad…Right?
I told myself it wasn’t so bad. I tried to rationalize that my thoughts were just a little on the delusional side but I knew deep down that it was a lot worse than what I was letting myself believe. No matter how bad it is, it could always be worse, I often tell myself to keep going. With a heavy heart, I have to admit that this time is different.
When I’m Stuck Inside My Own Head, I Don’t Feel Right in the Real World Either
The disorder has a way of making the real world feel strange. When I’m stuck inside my own head, I don’t feel right in the real world either. When I am able to function normally again, everything starts feeling normal again and that is when it seems like such a burden to bear. It is impossible to ignore the feeling that something is wrong but no one else can see it – because no one else can see what’s happening inside my head.

Recognizing As If Thinking Patterns in Borderline Personality Disorder
Living with borderline personality disorder can make it hard to organize your thoughts or plan ahead. Keep in mind that much of the disorder is mental, not just behavior. You may think someone is mad at you when they’re not; or fear a friend or family member has betrayed you when they haven’t. It’s common for people living with borderline personality disorder to live in a state of constant chaos.
Can Trauma Play a Role in my BPD?
There are many mental disorders that have been associated with Borderline Personality Disorder. One is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Although, PTSD typically involves memories of a single traumatic event, one study found that more than fifty percent of people diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder also met the criteria for PTSD. The etiology of this connection is not clear, but the fact that it is relatively common suggests there may be some overlap in symptoms between the two diagnoses.
Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms
Coping with trauma can be difficult. One of the primary ways in which people cope is through unhealthy coping mechanisms like drinking, smoking, drugs, or overeating. These mechanisms may serve to temporarily reduce feelings of sadness, anxiety, or guilt but are not recommended for addressing or treating traumatic life events. The effects can be damaging both physically and mentally to the individual.
