Questions about Delusion of Grandeur

Is Delusion of grandeur more understood than Schizophrenia? Am I safe to tell the general public that I sometimes have delusions of grandeur when I am manic?

Rather than use any kind of label that could be misunderstood,
would it be possible to just give people an example of your
thoughts/feelings/behavior when you're in a state of mania?

Like saying *I feel way more important and powerful when I'm
manic, sort of like a king, or emperor. Invincible.* Some
description like that...

That makes sense. Thank you!

Why do some people call inflated self-esteem or grandiosity "Delusion of grandeur" in Bipolar Disorder? I was sometimes in touch with reality, even when I had inflated self-esteem and grandiosity.
