Paranoid 1515

I just read an article that said the city I live in has had 48 break and enters in the last 30 days alone… I always make sure to lock all my doors but still I am always paranoid about someone breaking a window and coming in and robbing me.

Lots of these criminals have guns on them too which makes me even more paranoid. What if i get shot and die?

I wish I didnt see this article, its triggering me.

Anyone have any tips on reducing paranoia?

What’s the city population? Based on that we can compute the probability that your house or apartment becomes a target.

Also, I think burglars in general choose rich people, are you rich?

@Andrey - Thanks for the reply, my city has a population of 900,000 people.

Also, no I am not rich.


Well, at a rate of roughly 600 incidents a year, over 300,000 households (3 people per family on average), it gives a 0.2% chance of being targeted. That’s 5 times less than the chance of having schizophrenia btw. I wouldn’t worry too much. You can reinforce your windows and set up an alarm system if you still feel insecure.


I feel a bit better now, thanks man! @Andrey
