We need a new word for....Someone who believes that everyone in the world is conspiring to make him or her happy.

i.e. the opposite of P A R A N O I A

Pollyanna doesn't quite do it.

an attempt AN AIONARAP - SOMEONE WHO BELIEVES THAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS CONSPIRING TO MAKE GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO HIM OR HER.

being an Aionarap, i am sure that there is a better word for this and that you or someone else out there will HELP!!!

I stood frozen with fear, opposite a paranoid schizophrenic (?), on a one-acre island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. His medication ran out fifteen hours ago...He's three-times my size...I can't swim...
