My paranoia is one with me, but when I go to the shopping market, I know how infiltrate the place without allowing myself to get paranoid. It used to be a constant thing before meds I couldn’t avoid, but ever since I took the meds, I feel now it’s still there, but I know how to deal with/avoid it. Fortunately I feel comfortable in my work environment I don’t get paranoid.
I don’t really get paranoid either. I was crippled with paranoia just before I first started meds though.
The paranoia runs deep though…especially where I live
Funny because this song just came on…what a funny coincidence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YvAYIJSSZY
but I don’t live in a very peaceful place…I mean it’s not a warzone but people aren’t peaceful in manner by any means.
Haha! Rockwell, I haven’t heard that song in ages. Great song.
I was paranoid out of my mind, all of my life, until last year, when my pdoc put me on three AP’s. That changed my life. I am no longer paranoid.
"Have you learned to avoid paranoia?"
i don’t think i’ve learned to avoid paranoia. the most i’ve done so far is learn to avoid most of my triggers. paranoia seems to be a part of me, and i just do my best to keep it under a level where i’m not severely affecting myself or other people. also, meds help
Why do you ask? What do you want from me?
don’t think you can avoid it but can learn to live with it, If something is bothering me, I will ask questions of why it was like that etc. Kinda like facing your fears.
