Bipolar and Delusions – Who Experiences Them, and Why?


“The first time was hearing a man’s voice coming from inside the bedroom where I was sleeping, telling me he was coming to get me. His voice was low and threatening.

My delusional beliefs came on slowly and were impossible to rationalize as clearly as recognizing there was no man in the room….

Bipolar psychosis, and subsequent delusional thoughts, is usually a feature of severe mania in bipolar type 1 — it can also be associated with bipolar depression, but this is less common.

Most bipolar delusions are grandiose, involving exaggerated feelings of power, wealth, sexual attractiveness, luck or insight. Many of these thoughts have religious connotations and beliefs about God.

Studies have shown that approximately two-thirds of bipolar patients will experience at least one psychotic symptom over a lifetime,” (New Life Outlook, 2018).

  1. I went through a period last year where I was having hallucinations. They were happening just at random. No mania, no depression, but slightly anxious moments. I haven’t had any since then. While having these episodes, most of them I knew they were hallucinations. One I thought was real, it was a prehistoric looking bug crawling in my ceiling fan. I screamed and called my husband into the room to kill it. It crawled into the ceiling fan. But in reality, there was nowhere for it to crawl into. And I couldn’t wrap my mind around that.
