I'm trying to connect the title of your thread to anything in the story. Is the idea that Sam is Christ?
You have the feeling that he special because he is someone you care about. The UFOs were unexplained lights in the sky, happens all the time. If Sam
didn't remember making the doodles how do you know he did it? Could any of you be sleep walking? If it doesn't have meaning to any of you, then
it's not significant. People sometimes just doodle harmless doodles.
Do you really want to know if you're mad?
You're coming to a website which, as you said, you have no familiariy with because you were just directed here a few hours ago, yet this new
unfamiliar place full of people you don't know or trust is where you came to have your sanity assessed? I think that if you're genuinely concerned
for your mental health and this where you turned, your concerns are justified.
Your thread has little to no logical progression, and lacks a clear, coherent narrative. It's hard to follow. This is an indication of formal
thought disorder, which is associated with disorganized thinking and is considered a symptom of psychosis.
Another symptom of psychosis is delusions of grandeur. If you think your son is Christ, that would be an example of a delusion of grandeur.
Believing yourself to be the mother(although in your story, like the bible, not the biological mother) of christ would put you in a position of cosmic
importance that is completely incongruent with reality.
It's interesting that you think the doodles on the fridge are important. How does it tie into the rest of the story? Well, it could be that you
wrote it during an episode that you are unable to remember. Blacking out for periods of activity without taking drugs of abuse is the sign of
problem, could be a psychotic episode. It also could be that the doodles on the fridge are actually clearly written words, because inability to make
sense of written language is also a symptom of mental illness. Although you seem to have been able to type your story, so it could have been a
limited episode. What do you see if you go back and look at the board now?
You must have also included the prayer and the UFO's and the addictions for a reason. Why are those things important to this story? Do you see how
there is no clear connection between any of the events you described? What about your title, "Could Christ be Here Already?"

Since Thursday 25th March I have been experiencing things that have blown my mind.
To cut a long story short I have freeked.
Things(plular) that have blown your mind. I get the UFO thing, that's understandable, but what else? The doodles can't have blown your mind, can
they? Why do you say that you have suddenly "found god?" It sounds like you have a lot of energy all of a sudden but you don't know where to
Well, those are my observations. I would say that the chance that you are mad is high enough to justify a trip to the doc's office. Get an
evaluation. Unfortunately though, we get these stories every now and then and rarely ever hear from the person again. Whatever ends up happening you
ought to keep us posted by updating this thread.
