Im 17 years old and I love finding out and reading about medical situations.
Though i am stuck on this one so i would love it if you could help me.
My mothers friend is in his early 40's and is what i believe to be suffering from a delusional disorder. his symptoms are as followed:
Seeing 2 15foot black dragons
Seeing thugs in his car, that stay in his car or appear while he is driving and try to make him go over 40.
Groups or leaves in the park call him offensive names.
Also, he has been engaged to this lady for a few years now and he believes that she is trying to kill him, by draining his blood by cutting his legs and around his toes and sticking needles in his neck.
He calls her the white witch, the high priestess and the dragons and thug are working for her.

i was looking up on the internet and reading through books to try and help myslef understand what this situation could be, and the only closething was that it was in a delusional disorder group called presecutory type.
i was wondering whether you could send me some information.
to why these symptoms may be occuring and how someone can help.

  • Before I start, I want to remind you something that has been admitted by almost all psychiatrists on earth. Psychiatry is not science. It has no scientific back-up. So it's interesting that you've been trying to learn something when even the name of it is something in the air. All the names of mental disorders were invented by a panel of psychiatrists when they wrote DSM, the bible for them. They classified people they felt abnormal, or more plainly undesirable, into different sorts of nuts, and gave medications to ruin their brains, crippled their minds and made them real nuts. If you're really interested to know the true cause of that man's strange way of thinking, get to know him more. Perhaps you'll get some clues as to why he's been in constant fear of his fiancee, why he saw thugs in car of his own, and why he had invested magical qualities to his fiancee. He may have made dreams to hide himself, and to avoid confronting with some really harsh facts, which he never wishes to remember. Perhaps that's the only way to hide his fear, away from view. Finally, how do you know what he told was not true? Do you really know everything about witchcraft, the souls of dead thugs that lingered in his car? Are you 100% sure that his fiancee never harbours some wicked intentions to do anything whatever? You are not God. You couldn't have known everything.However it can be interesting if you delve deeper into his inner world, if you can.
