Delusional Disorder Discussion

Shaun Burns Visit 2 - March 12 2021

chart notes and commentary

I don't agree that I have a "persecutory belief system." What I have is a set of hypotheses about what is going on, based on the evidence that is available to me.

Another thing that stands out here is the pull quote which is not an actual quote "I think it is delusional that you can just diagnose someone without considering evidence and have such a tremendous impact on their lives." What I said was that I was not the one with fixed beliefs unamenable to change in light of conflicting evidence.
