    Paranoia is haunting me.

    People that I've shared this with, they've all asked me to go and see a doctor and that it'll help me ...But I'm afraid to do that, and I don't know why. I feel like everyone wanna hurt me and planing things behind my back. Sometimes I feel like if I go to a doc he/she might do...

    I am worried, I am constantly anxious.

    I feel as though everyone is out to get me, and that they are looking at me as if I am some kinda joke. :/ This is the shittiest feeling ever.

    Non-Delusional

    I'm not quite kooky enough for the delusions, but I suffer from bad paranoia, especially concerning friends and family.   I know you don't like me. I know you don't. I find it sweet that you act so hard to pretend you do. Maybe you pity me so much you have convinced...

    When I'm calm (which isn't as often as I'd like), or when I'm happy (not as often as it could be), I can rationalise, and accept that along with depression and anxiety, I also suffer from paranoia, but I dare not say much about it. Why can't I talk about it to a doctor or...
