delusional: characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.

denial: failure to acknowledge an unacceptable truth or emotion or to admit it into consciousness, used as a defense mechanism.
