Hi. I've smoke weed off and on for several years and I just recently quit. Hoping that's the problem but anyways let's see...
Even when I'm not smoking I feel like people can read some of my thoughts. This causes me to automatically think bad thoughts about them for some reason. In so many cases afterwards, this person will start talking trash in an indirect way. For example, he or she could be talking with friends, but in an indirect and clever way talk about me and try to make a joke or be rude. Sometimes it may be ideas of reference but other times it's so obvious and other people look at me like aren't u gonna make a comment back. But since its not directly made to me I ignore it. It's still annoying though.
Also, I feel like everyone or a lot of people are against me. I've always been cool with people but in the last two years I've been having this problem where people look and smile about something. Since it happened so often whenever I go out I feel like someone will talk trash in the indirect way I was talking about and I feel uneasy. Anyone else have this problem. I've had manic episodes and depressions but this is something totally different and ongoing. Any help is appreciated.

Hi,
I felt like people were against me, since starting aripiprazole I've felt better. I hope things improve for you.
Take care

It sounds to me like you are paranoid and smoking pot can make you paranoid. I was not well socialized when I was younger, so I felt uncomfortable around people and felt they all judged me. Try not to take it all seriously. Tell yourself that your mind is running away with you.
