router collecting and displaying info on computer?

Please don't make fun of me, I'm not being paranoid. I have a genuine concern about my internet router. I have a Cisco Linksys router. I have experienced an unusual, frequent occurrence of my conversations, tv, netflix, and searches being 'displayed' on my desktop computer. The bluetooth on my simple flip phone is turned off, as well as on the desktop and laptop. I'm not too sure about the ps3. I work from home, and connect through a VPN. I'm not very knowledgeable about computers, etc. but I think the company uses some type of software for reading forum posts that groups words into queues for some kind of organization process, which is probably normal. But, I screen messages for my job, and certain names and words that I talk about, type, watch on tv or netflix show up so often in these messages that I screen that I know somehow info is being collected or something. I even have seen names/words that I've talked about when I'm not home, but have my cell in my pocket. For example, I was at the store and talking out loud to someone about some items on my grocery list, and they show up in the messages that I screen for work. So it seems that my cell is "listening" to me too and putting it through my home network somehow. I'm totally clueless about this kind of stuff, and apologize if my post is confusing. When I tell anyone about this they call me paranoid, and it's getting really annoying not to mention unnerving seeing names and words of things I talk about and watch on tv, etc.
