What are delusions of grandeur?

3 weeks 5 days ago
A delusion of grandeur is a false belief in one’s importance or greatness. A person may believe, for instance, that they are famous, can end world wars, or that they are immortal. Grandiose delusions are often caused by mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia, but can also result from dementia or brain damage.

Bipolar is a mental disorder that is characterized by serious mood swings - alternating with highs (what clinicians call "mania") and lows (also known as depression). The periods of mania and depression vary from person to person and are often so extreme that they interfere with daily life. Fortunately, there are several options for treating bipolar disorder that can control the effects of an episode and help someone with the disorder live life as normally as possible.
