I am having real problems with paranoia at the moment and getting all sorts of paranoid thoughts going through my head which is really worrying me. When I was taking a lot of illegal street drugs I had the same problems as im having now with the paranoia but related it all to the drug use, I stopped the drugs a long time ago but as I have said before I do worry that I may of done some irreversible damage. Does any one else suffer with paranoia? Is it a symptom of anxiety?. I am heading home to the UK on Friday and will be seeing my doctor start of next week and will be talking to him about this and I will also be starting CBT soon. I am just worried the paranoia may be a symptom of an other mental health problem, any advice would be welcome.

Hey you,

I may be wrong here, but I am wondering if because your anxiety has been so out of control lately if that isn't making the paranoia kick in a little more than normal. I know you have been waiting to get back home to see your doctor, and glad the day is almost here. Wish I could be of more help, but know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hey Scottish Bro!

I'm sorry that you are feeling so down and having many issues with your anxiety. I have to agree with Nanners on the paranoia kicking in due to the high anxiety, because this has happened to me too. It is great you are going back home finally and seeking the help that you need my friend. I want you to succeed and have a great life :)

You take care and keep us posted!

Thanks Guys

I am at my wits end with it all now and just want to get it sorted as I am sick of feeling this way all the time. Thanks for your support and hopefully it will be a year of change for me for the better and get my GAD under control.

Take Care
