Hi, I'm new here. I've not been diagnosed with paranoia/delusions, but I haven't brought it up to my therapist yet. I feel very alone and like my therapist doesn't believe me when I tell him what's going on with me. I'm getting very desperate.
Since a young age, 8, I've had major depressive disorder and things spiraled from there. I got diagnosed with an anxiety disorder at 19 and recently my therapist is suspicious of bipolar disorder. I'm now suffering from auditory/visual hallucinations and what I thought was my anxiety kicking into overdrive is what I now suspect might be paranoia. I'll be in my room and suddenly get an unnerving feeling and I clam up. I lock my bedroom door and hide under my blankets pretending to be asleep but I can't explain why. I feel like something bad is going to happen. I think someone is trying to come into the house and hurt me. On top of that, I was once very social and I've been isolating myself because whenever my friends call to hang out or make plans, I get waves of paranoia that my friends are trying to lure me and are plotting to kill me. I had a friend call me and ask to come over which I was fine with at first so I got in the car to drive there. About halfway there I started thinking I was driving to my death. I kept seeing my friends standing around waiting for my arrival to attack me. It was so bad that I turned around, went home and fed them a lame excuse. I'm so lonely but too terrified to hangout with anyone and I don't trust anybody. Are my suspicions of paranoia fair? Does anyone else think their friends are trying to hurt them?
Sorry if this was hard to keep up with or if it was confusing. Writing this in a desperate ramble.
Hello evceryoneI can not stand that everyday of my life I am paranoid. It is more so about my husband and kids and then of course thinking my friends are really plotting against me. I dont know what to do I hate this feeling and it is like everyday it gets even worse.
Does any body else have their paranoia hit especially at nighttime ? All day i can function normally, but when night comes around i find myself only focusing on my delusions
