I Usually Get Paranoid About the Stupidest Things

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,569 People

    I think I maybe get paranoid about ridiculous

    things that CANNOT be possible, but have no legit fears!!!! Like, I constantly think people can read my thoughts, though I know they can't, and I sometimes think people are watching me when I am obviously alone! It's strange and annoying!

    I've never normally been this way; too much

    **** from ex's caused it. I care about being cheated on like anyone would, but I used to not care when a partner hung round with girls or went to a party, though I guess it's different if it's one on one with a girl at her house! What made me write this is what happened...

    I'm always paranoid. I constantly expect the

    worst of something and am always watching every movement around me to make sure I'm safe. About being paranoid over stupid things all depends on what you believe is stupid.

    A Day of Worries

    I hate being paranoid or scared about things, but I constantly find myself checking and re-checking things I've done or said in the day, wondering if I did the right things or said the right stuff.  It's aggravating at night, because then I can't sleep, worrying over what...
