    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 keep thinking people are watching me.. I'm constantly checking around myself because it feels like people are staring at me. I don't like to look at people, especially when I'm walking past them because they might be looking at me.  And when I'm on a public computer...

    I always fear people are lying to me.

    I know a compulsive liar and I hated her. Ever since then I always think about if every single person who's talking to me is lying. Who can you really trust??? Meanwhile my idiot uncle is being an ******* blaming me

    My entire family is or has at a point been a

    officer of the law, growing up with parents like this makes you very paranoid of the world. When we still watched the news, my mom would make sure to point out any child that was kidnapped and would proceed to tell me "That could have been you!". I've tried for a long time to...

    The Future Of My Son.

    I'm not sure if it's due to being a new mother or because I see sick things that happen on the news, movies, media in general, but I fear the worst things will happen for my child. I won't be an overprotective parent that'll end up raising my child to be sheltered but I have...

    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.

    I Hate Living Like This

    I've always been paranoid of other people,and my family would make fun of me for it,instead of helping (but what can I expect from them?) Instead of taking me to a doctor,they thought it wiser to do "home treatment"..didn't work,and just made it worse. Now it's acting...
