I read a Sci-fi story in an anthology a couple years ago about a guy who is sitting on his porch, and a pshychologist comes up and starts talkin to him about some philosophical stuff, and the guy believes that the edge of his lawn is actually a cliff face, the psychologist tries to refute it, saying it is in the guys head, but when he gets up to leave, he walks off the lawn, and falls off the edge of a cliff. So, it was basically the one guy's imagination becoming reality. Anyway, I was hoping to make a short film based on the idea, only I can not find the story anywhere, and was wondering if anyone knew the name of the author or title of this story?

It's not likely your story, but The Yellow Pill (http://www.lexal.net/scifi/scifiction/classics/classics_archive/phillips/index.html) is a classic on the theme.
