- thinking you have cancer (when you don't) or that you are "rotting away"
- hearing voices that insult you or put you down
Mood congruent, manic episodeEdit
- having delusions or hallucinations with themes of inflated worth, power, knowledge, identity, or special relationship to a deity (god) or famous person
- hearing God's voice explaining that you have a special mission
- thinking you are being persecuted because of some special relationship or attribute
Mood incongruent, all episode typesEdit
