When I and my brother were young, we believed that the world was like a tv show and we were the main characters. Just like tv, everything was about us. As far as we knew, those people who were with us existed only as long as they were with us. If they went home, they disappeared and only existed again when they were on "our show". Eventually, though I don't know at what age, we realized that people had real lives and existed outside of our presence.

After I saw the movie "The Truman Show" I was TERRIFIED.I then believed my life was a T.V. show.I felt so cheated.But I thought if they knew that I knew the truth they would kill me,so I never told anyone what I thought.And whenever I was about to change or take a shower (get naked) or something I would look around as if there was a camera somewhere and whisper "Perverts" or "You're sick". I actually still sort of believe it...

I used to believe that everything's for me! yeah, maybe I was a little bit egoist:D but I really believed that there's a script written by God and I'm the leading character in it and everyone knew about it except me... like a reality show...:D making fun of me:D

Ever since I was two, I used to belive that there were people watching me. Ever second of everyday. It freaked me out. I was always very parinoid. I would hide in small spaces alot so they couldn't see me...hopefully.places like a toy box, behind the coutch, in my closet, on a shelf, in drawers, behind the fridge, under my covers, under the dryer, between mattress leaning against the wall, under the stairs, any place I could think of. I stoped hiding so much when I was about 8. (I was a small child). I was still really parinoid.Even as a teen I still hid in my closet sometimes & I used to hide out in trees & little known about places with my friends. I flipped when more people somehow found out about some of these places...
I still think this way sometimes & get freaked out. I never saw the truman show till last year. That really bothered me more for a few months. I thought it was a plot to make me go completly crazy.
But ya, I still ocassionly think that theres hidden cameras everywhere. I've had a tendency to move alot since I was 16.
I don't have any clue how or why I started thinking this way. I probley am a little bit crazy, but It helps to know theres other people who have these thoughts. I was born in 1984, so you can do the math & figure out how long this has been going on for. Since 1986 I've thought like this.I was two. Thinking back, it might have gotten started by something my dad said, but I have no clue what (I had a VERY dysfunctional family & ploted my excape since I was four.)

When I was younger I loved watching the movie "The Truman Show". After the first time I watched I always thought that my life was really a T.V. show and everybody was watching me. I would even look around the house for cameras sometimes. I still wonder about that now and I'm 13! lol.

when i was in grade 6, probably 12 or 11, i used to think that my life was like the movie "The Truman Show" except the goverment was watching me and that the people around me (my friends and stuff) were agents who were just trying to pretend to be my friend to get info about me

After I watched The Trueman Show, a film starring Jim Carrey where he is in a made up world and he is the star of the worlds biggest TV show without even knowing it, I thought there were cameras everywhere watching me. A couple of times I even said hello to my mirror, thinking it was a camera.

I used to think that my life was documented, like the movie "The Truman Show". I actually thought that I was being watched all the time by hidden cameras and that I had my own tv show. Sometimes I watch what I say and do cause I forget that my life isn't a show!

I believed that everyone in the world was an actor, they were there solely for the purpose of interacting with me, and the world effectively revolved around me. Of course I grew up and realised this wasn't true, but when The Truman Show came out I was disappointed because I kind of thought of the idea first.

before the truman show ever existed, when i was little i always thought i was just in a show. so when me an my family would go on trips in the car we'd pass hills and mountains that cover the side of the road so you can't see what lies behind them. i always thought set designers were switching the scenery to the place we were going to. And if we went on a plane, they had big set waiting for me.

Like everyone else who has watched 'The Truman Show' I used to believe that I was on camera the whole time and sometimes when I was in the bath I would find the holes in the walls where I thought the cameras were and talk to them about how bad it was and then I would put my fingers over the holes so they couldn't see me!

This was way before Truman ever came out, but when I was little I used to think that I was on TV and people were watching my everyday life. This came from playing "TV" with my little brother and some friends and someone made a "What if" comment about it. So everytime I passed by a mirror I always had to make sure that I was presentable for being on TV. For a while I even was afraid to go to the bathroom or take a bath because I thought the whole world was watching me!

After I saw the movie "The Truman Show", I thought for years and years afterward that I, too, was being filmed in my every move. I would look into the mirror and say: "I know you're watching me!" I was always afraid to undress, because I thought that the scary Kristoff guy was a pervert and would spy on me. I talked to the film people a lot, and my mom once asked me why I talked to myself..
Coincidentally, a female friend of mine also believed the exact same thing, and once we set out to try to escape the "fake world". We were unsuccessful.

When I was but a wee lad, I used to believe (after seeing "The Truman Show")that I was in fact followed by cameras that watched my every move.

Ever since i saw the Truman Show i always wondered if i was being watched all the time. I always made sure that I did things correctly or never ever told a lie because i thought that everyone would know!!

We used to move around a lot when I was little, but whenever we moved somewhere new, I used to think that everybody we knew put on different clothes and make-up and followed us to our new place and pretended to be different people. Sort of like some very odd and twisted version of The Truman Show. I always used to really stare at people who looked vaguely familiar or similar to someone I knew, just to try and catch people out...
