Both my grandparents have it on my mother's side. And my aunt has it. I think I might have it because I am always paranoid and think everyone is against me.

I tell my friends and family to be quiet because the new neighbor might hear our conversation.

When I first meet you, I think you are an enemy and I put my guard up. I am not mean to you or anything.
I just get anxious and do not trust you. I believe you are against me and will gossip about me behind my back. About what? Well, where I live. I live in a small, poor, apartment building. I feel like Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink lol. I literally believe people sit around talking about me and my apartment building. I even believe they talk online about me. I search online on their social media accounts and I see nothing about me. I feel stupid after.

I also have extreme thoughts on covid. I believe they put tracking devices inside the fluid of the vaccines so they can see where we go.

Do you believe I have Schizophrenia? The paranoid thoughts I have sounds a lot like my grandmother. However, I do not believe people are trying to kill me, like my grandmother seems to believe. And I never saw anything that isn't there. I fear i'm in the starting stage of it and will develop my grandmother's symptoms later. I am 29 and scared. I told this to someone and he said it doesn't sound like I do. He said it sounds like bi polar or borderline personality ( because I also have anger problems and mood swings). What do you think? Thank you so much for answering.

I think you are just cautious and it scares you...if you have schizophrenia you would def seem a lot more strange...paranoia is almost normal...don't worry yet...

Forgot to add. My paranoid thoughts on people talking about me and my apartment is intense. I spent 5 hours trapped in my own head thinking "are they talking about me"? I couldn't think about anything else. When they aren't talking in reality. I can't take it anymore.
