Most conditions that cause paranoia are chronic. Even with proper treatment, which op could be getting, flare ups do happen. I'm lucky in that I recognize that its a mania in myself. Being in a 7 month long mania, my paranoia has hit some pretty weird moments myself. I have often found meditation to be a good way to calm down and get things into perspective so I can remind myself that it's the chemicals causing the issue and those are not really my thoughts or feelings. Gl op. If you are already on meds, it may be time to talk to your doc about a temp adjustment or a temp add on med until the flare up passes. I hope you feel better.

For everyone saying "get therapy" I'm glad you understand the value of it, but it isn't always accessible or affordable. That's one of the problems with mental health issues, actually getting to see someone isn't always just about walking in the door. Getting an appointment with a doctor for a diagnosis can take a long time, and then you have to worry about insurance. I've only been able to see a psychiatrist if I am also seeing a psychologist regularly, so that's two doctors, one for medication and one for the discussion and non medication ways to work with issues. That doesn't come cheap, either. There are many barriers to getting proper mental health care, especially in the USA.

I agree, assuming that this was a true FML and not one some person created but we have to give the OP the benefit of the doubt and assume it was genuine

#7, great idea! The OP should walk around with a pitbull, just not the kind that thinks "if you know what I mean" rhymes with "if you know what I mean." 305, Dale!

Dang. You didn't confront the government spy cleverly disguised as a kid when you had the chance?

I hope you at least went home an put a blacker over your tv so that they can't watch you or keep your phone in a lead shielded box so they can't track you
