    Am I In My Own Truman Show?

    I have the feeling at times that I am being watched, my ideas are being taken and that parts of my life are staged. It seems someone is watching, listening, and also watching out for me. A staged life- It seems most of my life is staged or somehow I'm being sheltered from a...

    Jimmy's Crazy Girlfriend Show

    Apparently my ex use to tell his friends all about me. I had not idea I was so infamous, until I got this telephone call from his friends house. I missed the call, but when I called back, the man was all what-the-hell-do-you-what. I said “This is Bernie, I want to talk to...

    Yeah, I'm Good For All Kinds of Drama and Laughs

    Jeez louise.  I could probably make a lot of money if I just put webcams all over my house and made people pay to watch the goings on here....yesterday my four year old decided to try to pee in the toilet from the edge of the bathtub and well, he hit his sister in the head.

    I thought, and sometimes still do,

    that my life is a cross between the Truman show and the brainwashing part of a clockwork orange. I was put in a mental establishment where all kinds of crazy things happen to me and I tried to escape three times as I believed that my story was coming to its end where I would...

    Truman Show Syndrome Or Not?

    So, I've read about this Truman Show Syndrome...  And I worry often that I have it. Unlike many of the others, I've actually signed a contract where I allow people to secretly film me.  It was part of my contract so that I could appear on a talent show. ...

    Sometimes.

    i think it's normal and healthy to ponder the nature of reality and existence from time to time, so long as you don't freak yourself out too much. so yes, i wonder sometimes if i am starring in the truman show. but i always come to the same conclusion: if i am, i'm sure doing a...

    I often feel this way

    and it's so confusing. It also makes me feel like things I do have no real consequences because I'm in a tv show. I also make silly faces at wherever I think cameras could be. But I don't actually truly believe I am in a show, I know this is real life. But I can't help it.

    Yes, I Do

    I think my town is not real because there is no grafitti, crime, etc. I think the cameras are in garbage cans and in my ring. I think when I go to the bathroom they say, "what is that crazy cassandra going to do next?? we'll see after these messages..." then they...

    I Wonder If I'd Top the Ratings List...

    Ever since I saw the movie, I began to wonder if I could be staring in my own Truman Show. I wonder how people would react to me, if they'd love me like they did Truman in the movie. I wonder how my life would play out if everything was made and taken care of for me, like some...

    Very Paranoid

    I can get very very paranoid about this. Always in my life I've had the feeling that I'm not alone. I've never ran around naked at home or done something that I would only do when I'm alone, cause I always thought that there is still someone watching me. When I'm in public places...
