I recently had a hypomanic episode. In it I had the belief that I was constantly being watched by everything and anything. I know it’s a common thought in mental health and trying to get it across and getting people to believe it is hard, especially if the thought is also paired with the thought that people are judging everything you do. I decided not to include people watching over the person, because I find when I get these beliefs it’s not the person I’m suspicious about it’s eye contact that I find disturbing. Then there is always the belief that there are cameras and objects watching. The idea that Big Brother is always watching is literal in this delusion.
