Is paranoia part of anxiety disorder or is it part of psychosis? How does one differentiate between fear due to anxiety disorder and fear due to sz/sza?
- I’m scared sometimes that when my curtains or blinds not properly shut, people can look in and shoot me with a gun through the glass.
- I’m scared my mother in law waiting for opportunity to harm me (especially if my husband passes away before her).
- I’m scared of sickness and thunderstorms
- I’m scared Alien will control my mind or people will read my mind
- I get panic attacks in public sometimes
- I’m scared of dentists and going to them for dental work.
But in particular I’m talking of paranoia. Is it neurotic or psychotic? And fear in general?
