    Delusional

    I am such a paranoid person I think my own mind is out to get me. That my brain creates these fictional stories and beliefs out of nowhere to make me feel crazy. My top paranoid thoughts always stem from people who I am close with. I am constantly thinking they don't really like...

    What Do You Mean I'M Just Being Paranoid?

    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...

    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.

    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...
