i used to beleive that i was the only normal one on the planet, ( a bit like the truman show ) that everyone would speak a different language when i left the room, and there were hidden cameras watching me. AND that people watched me in the airvents.
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...
When I was at school, i used to believe that the whole world was set up to watch me. That no-one had real lives except me and that when I passed by they became obsolete and vanished. I was perplexed later on in life of course to see the movie of The Truman Show - That was exactly how I thought it was - maybe it still is?
I used to believe that everyone around me could go home and watch me on their TVs. Like "the Truman Show," if the actors could watch it themselves. And their behavior might be adjusted according to certain things I did in the privacy of my own home. I thought that girls would be interested in me if I walked around the house naked a lot. I didn't learn until I was about 15 that this was not the case.
Shortly after the Truman show came out I decided that my life was like the Truman show. I came to this conclusion because in Elementary school I always bought books from the Scholastic book fairs and book orders. On most of the books I bought I kept discovering this little tiny green circle on the cover which I was sure was a camera. The situation grew from there. I remember a couple of times being in the bathroom and talking to the cameras saying that they were sick for putting cameras in here and if they were going to film my life they should at least give me my privacy.
When I was about six or seven, I thought that my whole life was staged, and that everyone I knew was just an actor. I also belived that hidden cameras were filming my every move for the entertainment of others. I would always try to get a confession out of someone, with out letting on that I "knew".
This was shortly afer I saw that movie "The Truman Show".
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.)
I used to think that everyone was watching me wherever I went, and one day, I was out shopping like all day and I refused to use the bathroom because I thought a stranger would be watching me. It was scary.
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.
I thought that people where just pretending to be like me when i was around them, that when i wasnt around, they all took on their true appearances of giant monsters, i was some kind of experiment. I was about 6
I sort of lost touch with reality when I was about 6 years old, and I'm still not sure what caused it. I was convinced for about a year that I was in a TV show, kind of like the truman show, so I would do random quirky things for the audience, like 4th wall breaking. I also got stressed when I was seperated from my parents because I thought they were being replaced by imposters. This happened when I would lose then and they would turn up at a different place than where I thought they had gone, so I thought the originals had been kidnapped.
I used to believe that the whole world was watching me live my life and that everyone i knew were simply actors (not unlike the Truman Show) consequently i always made sure i changed under the covers and never bitched anyone up..
When I was around 9 or 10 years old I would go on trips from my small village to a nearby city with my family.
While there I would notice that many faces I would see looked somewhat like people I knew back in the village.
I used to have this fantasy--that I more than half believed--that the world I lived in was some kind of enormous experiment around me. So this bunch of people followed me around, disguising themselves so as to appear as different people.
Think of the 1998 movie "The Truman Show".
Quite an ego-centered fantasy...
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.
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...
Until I was about 10 I believed that I was the only normal kid around and that my classmates and teachers conspired and watched me and recorded what I did in certain circumstances.
When the movie "Truman Show" with Jim Carrey came out it was as if my childhood beliefs may not have been so unreal.
when i was little i watch the film 'The Truman Show'.After i watched it i cept thinking that there were camrers everywhere and they were all watch me at the same time.(even in the loo!)
Up until last year I honestly thought everyone but me was an actor and I was in some TV show (think Truman Show). I am 14...Sad, yeah?
When I was younger,(I'm 15 now) I was convinced that there were hidden cameras all over my house and that people were videotaping me for a T.V. show. Needless to say, when the movie "The Truman Show" came out, I was doubly sure of it. I would sometimes sit in front of the mirror (an optimal hiding spot) and talk to the people who were taping 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!
