so im thinking this a some sort of paranoia or somthing but nothing seems to fit,

so lately(lately being the past year) ive been having these anxiety or panic attacks, and i cant go out anywere by myself because im afraid that somone is going to do somthing to me, and at night i cant look out my window because i think someone is going to be there waatching me. i cant look into my mirror unless the door behind me is closed. when my mind is concentrated on a book or the computer or even a board game, i'll see things, like dark figures of like demons or somthing,(this sounds retarded but im not joking) when i turn my head to them they hide or disapear. if theres a car sound at night and i hear it, i jump 20 feet and i cant go to sleep unless half of my room is lit up and theres a movie playing to distraact my mind. i thought it was paranoid schizophrenia or somthing but it dosnt sound lke it. :confused::confused::confused:. oh, i also cany have any stuffed animaals or porceline dolls faced toward me becaause i think there going to move like in those movies or attack me or somthing........:(

(dont know if a thread is different than a post ???? sorry if i messed up, just dont yell at me im new)

  • hi.. im curious how old you are?? You sound like a child. Children often have those kinds of fears. When a child, I lived out in a back room and the backyard used to be very dark and creepy looking hence I was too scared at night to look outside throu the window. I was terrified of what i may see, if something was out there (this was in my teen years). I knew my thoughts were kind of ridiculous but I was still scared by the window and the dark yard outside (I was scared by ghosts.. or maybe there could be a strange person out there.. watching me throu the window, waiting for me). (I guess this fear would be very very common even in adults). Ive heard of children getting parents to check under there bed and in their closets before going to sleep.. (lol like in case the bogey man is under the bed). You may be suffering from "anxiety" hence being so jumpy and overthinking things. oh, i also cany have any stuffed animaals or porceline dolls faced toward me becaause i think there going to move like in those movies or attack me or somthing I strongly suggest due to your nervous predeposition to not watch scary movies! Sounds like you've watched too many of them or been affected by them. It isnt uncommon for someone to think they saw something out of corner of eye... (doesnt mean they have mental illness.. just caused by not focusing properly and a nervous mind which is running like wild). If your "anxiety" gets too bad you may need treatment for it. (thou I dont suggest that unless it gets quite bad and if really affecting your daily life as medications can cause side effects).

  • HAVE YOU EVER HAD A SEIZURE???? Find out if you've ever had seizures even as a baby. PARANoia and feeling like you're being watched can be a symptom of epilepsy. You may also want to have cognitive behavioural therapy, this is extremely effective.

Don't be too quick to pigeon-hole yourself
