Delusional disorder, formerly called paranoid disorder, is a type of major mental disease called a psychotic disorder. Delusions are the main symptom of delusional disorder. Delusional disorder entails deceptions that aren't bizarre, pertaining to situations that might happen in real life, like being adhered to, infected, deceived, conspired versus, or loved from a range. A person that has such ideas might be considered delusional with bizarre-type delusions. People with delusional disorder usually can continue to mingle and function normally, apart from the topic of their misconception, and typically do not behave in a bizarre or clearly odd way. This is unlike people with other psychotic disorders, who could have deceptions as a symptom of their disorder. But sometimes, people with delusional disorder might end up being so busied with their delusions that their lives are interrupted. Delusions could be a symptom of more common disorders, such as schizophrenia, delusional disorder itself is rather unusual. Delusional disorder usually occurs in middle to late life and is slightly more common in women than in men. The types are based on the main theme of the delusion: Erotomanic: The person thinks somebody is in love with them and might attempt to contact that person. Jealous: A person with this type thinks their partner or sex-related partner betrays. Mixed: These people have two or more of the types of delusions noted above. Somebody who believes they have an odor trouble could smell a bad smell.
