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.

Mental Health Monday’s: Making Friends With Fear

Intrusive thoughts can be terrifying. I deal with them on a daily basis, I get thoughts ranging from my boyfriend leaving me to a random ache or pain being a lot worse than it actually is.

I wish I knew how to deal with the latter, but I’ve been able to deal with the smaller, trivial thoughts. By accepting the worst case scenario, it takes a lot of weight off your shoulders, since fear can come from having no control at all.

Paranoid Thoughts Are Making My Life Seem Rough

I had planned on posting another gaming post but this had kept me up all night, so why not blog about it? Mental health matters, in general, need to be talked about more and this is my platform. If mental health posts aren’t your thing, I have a gaming one scheduled for Monday if all goes to plan. It’ll be about Siege’s outbreak mode.

I will say this, I am loved. I have a good group of friends who think highly of me. I am an aunt to my best friends gorgeous boys, who adore me. I am also an aunt to my sister’s daughter, both of those who love me too. While I am aware that I might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I know I am loved within the circles I am in.

However, this is not something that my brain can accept a good percentage of the time these days and it’s driving me absolutely spare! I can think myself into some serious moods. Whenever a friend doesn’t reply to me, I start to assume they hate me, or they are talking about me to someone else.
I see a car that I do not recognise outside my house, I assume it’s someone who is watching the house to steal it.

I’m going to spend the day taking it easy, pointless antagonising myself further. My brain has already done a fantastic job with that.

I really need to start finding a way to silence these thoughts, I deserve to live my life and enjoy all that is around me.
