What is a Delusional Attachment?A delusional attachment (DA) is a term that psychotics have coined as an alternative to the term 'Identity Delusion', in which someone believes that they are another 'being' than they actually are, whether that be a real person, a fictional character, a nonhuman creature, an object, etc. The term and experience of having a DA is exclusive to those who experience Psychosis!Delusional attachments can be constant/recurrent, or they can be episodic.
Where did this term originate?The term 'Delusional Attachment' itself was coined by the psychotic community and is not a medical term. It seems to be an alternative term for an Identity Delusion, likely made as there is little information online about Identity Delusions and Grandiose Delusions in general, despite Grandiose Delusions being relatively common amongst psychotics.The term was originally coined by twitter user @swaggotfan, although I have been unable to find any archive links to the original post. I have also seen people attributing the coining to @lgbtdni on twitter, but I do not know if these are the same person. @swaggotfan has a history of racism, harassment, and ableism, and has been accused of racefaking, although I've been unable to find a source for the latter.

What is Psychosis?“Psychosis is a condition that affects the way your brain processes information. It causes you to lose touch with reality. You might see, hear, or believe things that aren’t real. Psychosis is a symptom, not an illness. A mental or physical illness, substance abuse, or extreme stress or trauma can cause it.” (source)
What causes Psychosis?Psychosis can be a result of trauma,

Hello, Jon.Apologies for the deception, but I wanted to make sure you started reading, so I thought it best not to announce myself.I’m assuming you’re alone; you always did prefer to read your statements in private. I wouldn’t try too hard to stop reading; there’s every likelihood you’ll just hurt yourself. So just listen.Now, shall we turn the page and try again?Statement of Jonah Magnus regarding Jonathan Sims, The Archivist.Statement begins.I hope you’ll forgive me the self-indulgence, but I have worked so very hard for this moment, a culmination of two centuries of work. It’s rare that you get the chance to monologue through another, and you can’t tell me you’re not curious.Why does a man seek to destroy the world?It’s a simple enough answer: for immortality and power. Uninspired, perhaps, but – my god. The discovery, not simply of the dark and horrible reality of the world in which you live, but that you would quite willingly doom that world and confine the billions in it to an eternity of terror and suffering, all to ensure your own happiness, to place yourself beyond pain and death and fear.It is an awful thing to know about yourself, but the freedom, Jon, the freedom of it all. I have dedicated my life to handing the world to these Dread Powers all for my own gain, and I feel… nothing but satisfaction in that choice.I am to be a king of a ruined world, and I shall never d
what are yall getting here from lol
please read 👍
holly shit 10000 views mom i'm an internet celebrity. look at them:
i originally posted this for 2000 views but wtf 10000. had to change that. also i did not write the doc linked on the previous page, idk who did but they are my hero lol
to answer some questions:
about what happened here: this url originally lead to an "informational" carrd about delusional attachments for about a year and a half. on july 16th, an unknown hero hacked into the account that it was on. they put a genshin impact on it for a few days, but it got taken down and the url was like... voided for about a week. somehow, on august 4th, i was smiled upon and allowed to be the guy who would get this carrd url.
and then i got an awful idea.
i'm not against people having kins-- i'm against medical misinformation. kin all you want! i do consider what i linked on the previous page to be a good informational resource about the phenomenon. the "long passage" is a copypasta originating from a podcast called the magnus archives, though i've cut out some of the text bc it was annoying me. it's a sort of meme in the fandom, you trick someone into thinking that they're reading something else and then... BAM. it makes more sense if you have the context of the episode itself lol
