Paranoia is thinking and feeling like you are being threatened in some way, even if there is no evidence, or very little evidence, that you are. Paranoid thoughts can also be described as delusions. There are lots of different kinds of threat you might be scared and worried about.
Paranoid thoughts are something that trouble me frequently; they are one of the worst symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder. In my opinion. In this post, I’ll be sharing ways that I work through them.
Please keep in mind that I am not a mental health professional. All the information I share is based on my own experiences.
Borderline Personality Disorder is a misunderstood mental illness. Portrayals in the media have not helped this, and have only helped feed the stigma that surrounds it.
In today’s post, I’ll be sharing some facts around the disorder that will hopefully ease the misinformation around the disorder. Of course, these won’t be pleasant, so don’t read on if you are easily triggered.
