Paranoia

I suppose I should note that given my experience at my last job, I am now paranoid that people are talking about me when they speak in low, hushed tones that I can’t hear. Especially since these people are usually loud in the office.

This probably has nothing to do with bipolar disorder but is likely a natural reaction to having a history of people speaking ill about me. However, I still get scared that true paranoia would creep up on me like it has on my father and other members on that side of my family.

    My best friend is pretty paranoid, I blame it on her time in the military. I try to ignore it, but at times its just a bit too much to just ignore.

    ((((HUGS)))) I still get that way, too. It’s a knee-jerk reaction from when I was growing up and I was the bully target.
    It’s hard when you can’t shut up those voices.

    I tend to overthink other people’s behaviour, which other people have pointed out to me several times. Now I tend to wonder if I’m being ridiculous or if my cynicism is justified.
