Was My Brain Screaming To Itself?
In another context, I had to revisit a prior post here: Self-Confidence Vs. Self-Delusion.
In reading it just now, this jumped out at me:
This is why I excoriate The Secret and things like it. They make it far too easy for someone to fall into the horrible trap of self-delusion. It’s a trap that is very, very difficult to escape — because it’s all inside your head and it seems real. But it’s a mirage, an hallucination.
It made me recall what I wrote here: Simvastatin Made Me Insane
I have never had something like this occur in my life. I’ve been in possession of my head. For the past two years, I wasn’t. My mind was taken from me and reconfigured in ways I never thought could happen. Even though I felt something was wrong, I didn’t feel as if it was happening to me — it felt like me. But it wasn’t me.
Clearly a Philip K. Dick moment.
