An illusion is not necessarily due to illness, optical illusions for example. I must be missing something. I don’t see the humor in this.

@LostInParadise I might have had all three. I need to laugh because I don’t want it to get too serous too fast, when I share my side of the story.

I still believe that I am caught in a time loop, and am finally free from my persecution complex towards my university experience. I don’t feel the hated towards me over and over anymore. I am getting over the, what I thought of as fact, that I permanently destroyed my future as a career councilor. In fact, it is the opposite. The life that happened to me would help me to empathize with future clients. Or Fluther Jelly’s for free.

My life is back on track now and I see a future that is acceptable to me. I am slowly getting ahead.

I don’t get it as humorous either. Thanks for pointing it out. I would like Jellies to share personal stories about illusions, delusions, and hallucinations.

For example:
When I was in the throw’s of an physical illness, flu or something, 23 years ago I proposed to my landlord. I never got an answer and It now can be funny. She took me to bed and left.

It is good that you have stopped blaming everyone else and are taking personal responsibility for what you do. Even if your situation does not change in any other way, that is a major breakthrough.

Just as an aside you don’t hunt anymore right? I went to burning man 2017 so I can
tell you about hallucinations. Just meet me in my dessert tent.
