I think if it were me I would ask myself what it is that is making me paranoid, and then work out what I can do to turn it around. I think I would also try going to bed a bit earlier, and stick to that time on a daily basis, probably adjusting my meal times too. Hope this helps :)

Seems being para is part of my mh condition/s. I know the focus is my privacy mainly. I dont like feeling encroached on or spotted. Its fuelled by real life. My neighbours have cameras that pick me up aswell. This bothers me, I dont like to be visible or tracked at all in any way.
Eating and sleeping routines are very important. I should take extra care right now. Thank you.

I used to be self-consious, well I still am I guess. Working on what makes me self-consious should help though... even if it means letting go, to a degree of conforming to other people's expectations...

All of these that Ive listed are depression (bit of anx too) symptoms creeping back.
Like this morning I didnt want to get up even though I had somewhere good I had to go to. As I travelled I thought I didnt want to go. I dont think Ive thought that since around this time last year. Nothing has changed except me. I was watchng a film last night and though I had the time to I just coudnt be bothered with it.
Im making mistakes. I feel exhausted. It wont be long before Im staying in bed more. I cant stop it. I have to get ahead of it.
Im not feeling good roday at all. So tired. 2 things were said today and though they are highly likely innocent Im ruminating them, imagining theyre what they could be.

I couldnt get up today. I did once Id decided I was goung to do a few things Id not planned to.
That seemed to be key.
I dont feel miraculously better but better than I did yesterday.
Im remembering sad events, I cried last night. I had strange dreams. Im missing some that are gone.

I hope you don't mind me saying so, but I get the impression you don't really have anything going on at the moment that inspires, or motivates you... because of this you might be spending more time self-analysing etc. where you wouldn't normally... Could that be a fair assumption :hug:
