I feel that people can read my mind

Hello everyone,
this is my first time posting on this site and thought I’d share my story. I have schizoaffective disorder and deal with paranoia. I truly believe that people can read my thoughts because I get answers from society every time I think of something in code. It may sound odd to some but I’ll think of something and instantly I’ll either get a 1,2, or 3 remark. Whether it be from a dog barking, birds chirping, the amount of cars that drive by, people wiping their nose, I mean the list goes on forever and it’s literally EVERY TIME I think of something and it causes me so much anxiety. I’ve had therapists I’ve gone to group therapy sessions and nothing has worked. I could use some advice to help overcome this thinking. If you have any I’d highly appreciate it.

I thought you meant mind reading in the traditional sense given the title.

Can you tell me more about the things you think and the answers you get?

It sounds a bit like synchronicity to me, unexplainable coincidences.

I've experienced synchronicites in the past, one was where I read a book called the Timeus by Plato and hours later on a game show called The Chase had a question where the answer was the Timeus.

But I've experienced much more than that. Nothing like getting answers to my thoughts from the 'universe' or whatever else you believe in.

I'm no expert but I wonder if these things fall under 'ideas of reference'.

What do you take the 1, 2, or 3 to mean?
