I don't know if this would go here or in support groups so I appologize if this is the wrong area to put this.

Here's my problem. I'm extremly paranoid. I'm suspicious of everyone but moreso i'm the most suspicious of people who I become close to both romantically and non-romantically and i'm not entirely sure why. It's getting to a point where it's effecting relationships with friends, lovers, family, and professionally.

I've talked this over with my psychiatrists and psychologists and they've both offered some insight on what might be causing much of this, however they haven't added much insight on a solution to help me solve this problem. I guess i'm getting worried because my paranoid behaviour is causing friends and family to back away from me when I need them as close to me as possible. I guess i'm just confused with myself and not sure what to do anymore. I don't want to screw up any more relationships with my constant paranoia which causes me to flip out on the smallest things. It scares me, and i cry myself to sleep because it scares me so much to think that i'm pushing everyone I love and cherrish and hold so dear to me away. And the sad part about all of this is; i'm not doing it on purpose. *sigh* I don't know what to do...

What are the insight as to the cause of your paranoia? Perhaps looking at what's causing it can help you identify what you need to overcome it.

Also, you can always ask your psychaitrists for specific strategies to help you overcome this.

Insights into causing my paranoia...i feel as if everyone is against me, or has some kind of alterior motive. I feel like my friends and family are all hiding some deep dark secret that if I were to find out something terrible would happen.

I don't know most of all i'm paranoid that i'm going to be left alone and's something i haven't quite gotten over just yet.

I have spoken to my psychiatrists about it, and they put me on medication for it. Unfortunatly i don't think the medication they put me on is working or maybe it's something deeper than just a chemical imbalance. i don't know. I guess i'm just scared of two particular people in my life right now, completly leaving me because of reasons i have no control over. In fact these two people at this point in time are the only two people i have who i can trust and talk to, and recently at least with one of them things haven't been going to well. So i get more paranoid and suspicious and it's just making things worse and worse and worse and ahhhh i just can't take this stupid stuff anymore:S....*sigh* sorry, i don't really have anywhere else to express these feelings. Asides from the professionals i'm seeing who do know how i's just one big long nasty circle...
