I'm going crazy

Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place. I am honestly driving myself crazy with my paranoia and insecurities. I have no idea how to stop feeling like this or even if it's possible. I'm hard work to be around lately and know I need myself under control quickly before I ruin things.

I feel for you, though I don't know what the answer is. I feel like this all the time and it's getting worse. Mine is social anxiety and paranoia that people talk about me behind my back, everyone hates me, meeting up behind my back and not inviting me, etc.
Sorry for rubbish unhelpful response, but I understand how you feel. I just don't know how to fix it. X

I feel like this too..its making life miserable. I hate the school run. I feel people think i'm boring. I have lost confidense in everything.

OP have you spoken to your GP?

I waited until I was sure I was losing my mind before I went. I'm better now, but I wish I'd got help sooner.

Thank you for your comments. I don't wanna out myself to much on here but I am in a wheelchair and have recently gotten into a long distance relationship. I constantly think he's gonna find someone who isn't disabled, whose more prettier etc etc etc. I have no reason to suspect anything is going on and he tells me he isn't looking for anyone else etc but I honestly can't rid of my paranoia and feeling insecure. I didn't know GPs and people like that could help tbh. I've definitely gotten worse though.

I am pleased to know I'm not the only one with constant feelings of paranoia it's an awful feeling.

Please do speak to your GP. It's not ok to feel like this all the time. If you suffer from anxiety or intrusive thoughts then they can help.
Is it just the relationship that's the focus of your thoughts or does it spread into other areas?

Definitely just the relationship. I have no idea why though when I haven't seen anything to make me think he's anything but faithful and he always tells me there isn't anything to worry about, that he isn't going anywhere blah blah blah
