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.
The brain is a wonderful thing, all the things it can do, how it keeps us up and running. Sadly, in the case of many people, there are imbalances that can affect people in different ways. Yet there is such a stigma around mental illness.
These illnesses can be just as crippling as physical illnesses, yet, it seems if it’s not visible in an obvious way, it doesn’t matter.
