Paranoia Support Group

Paranoia is a disturbed thought process characterized by excessive anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. It is often associated with psychotic illnesses, sometimes schizophrenia, although attenuated features may be present in other primarily non-psychotic diagnoses, such as paranoid personality disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder.

    How paranoid am I?

    I usually feel like someone is watching me when I take a shower and I obsessively check the underside and interior of my car before I get in. I sometimes feel like I hear voices when the shower is running, or when low music is playing, but it's usually no distinct words, though i sometimes think I've heard my name.For a little background, I am 29 years old, and have been living with ADD and...

    I just joined.

    I just created this account.  I was recently diagnosed with paranoia borderlining on psychotic.  I don't think I'm being paranoid, I think I'm being reasonable, but I'm not the licensed psychologist.  I'm not happy with the diagnosis.

    Paranoia with alcohol

    Hi everyone.Since I was a child till when I turned 18 (2 years ago), my father was an alcoholic. Whenever he drank, he overdid it. He got angry at my mom and would scream at her the whole night while me and my sister cried the whole night. Somtimes we would drag us into it as well and keep me and my sister up the whole night while he screamed at us too. I had a lot of suicidal thoughts and a lot...

    Hello to everyone

    I am new here and could sure use some help! I had to let go of a dear friend because she has become so paranoid that she honestly believes that I'm conspiring with her brother that she lives with, and who I cannot stand. I just don't know what to do anymore. And I don't know why it's happening. I'm tired of being accused of conspiring with someone I don't even like and why would I? I hope someone...

    Can you have obsessive paranoia?

    Is it possible for your paranoia to be an obsession rather than actual paranoia? What if you make yourself paranoid just because it's in your routine and not because you're paranoid?For example, everytime I wash my hands in the washroom, I think to myself "What if there's a camera behind the wall and everyone can see what I'm doing?" and proceed to make a funny face because someone might be...

    Some days, I question why it is that I don't want to leave the house unless I absolutely have to (examples: doctor appointments, runs because they're around a tot lot a block from home, to my current part-time job). This comes up because I'm in the process of looking for a better job than I have now, but I pretty much do everything wrong. I treat networking events like they're dynamite sticks...

    People always have to make it my fault...

    I guess I'm always wrong... Every time I have a problem, the other person automatically assumes I didn't even try to examine every possible cause... Ivan's the bad guy! I guess it's my fault for every problem I encounter. The fact that everyone is so quick to point the finger at me is moving me ever so much closer to the tipping point. I constantly feel like no matter what I do, I'm bombarded on...

    Feels like different things are watching me?

    I constantly have the feeling someone or something is watching me, but that someone/something changes a lot. Some days I feel like there's cameras everywhere and tons of people are watching everything I do, like my life is a TV show (sort of like the Truman Show delusion).Some days I feel like my friends are watching me via webcam or random cameras around my house.Some days I feel like God is...

    When did your paranoia start?

    Hello everyone:Now that I am older I realize a lot more about myself such as when my paranoia began. It started when I was very young, I believe. Maybe 9 or 10 years old. I remember being that age and thinking 'all people are liars and no one can be trusted'....... it grew from there. I realize now my paranoia grew up with me and cost me a lot of jobs and friendships.It's accompanied by anxiety...

    How to talk to someone who is paranoid

    My dad started out a long time ago with meth induced paranoia, but over the last five years it has become steadily worse. He believes that local law enforcement have had him under surveillance for a long time. He thinks all of the house phones, and cell phones are bugged, that they are secretly videotaping him, are blocking his internet access, and are basically torturing him with...
