    His Paranoia

    I'm hoping someone here can help me. Looking for a group that helps people deal with other people that are paranoid. I'm at my whits end and really need to hear from others who also live with someone like this and how they are able to cope. Thank you in advance.

    I've been very paranoid the last few weeks

    about a bad open sore I saw on fb with the caption saying it's caused by the same shampoo I use. Today after not washing my hair for at least 2 weeks I was able to suck it up and wash my hair without totally freaking out and so far nothing bad has happened.
