    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...
