I am really struggling right now having to concentrate on breathing and writing on here to distract me but so so scared... Suffering from paranoia and even though I keep telling myself these thoughts are in my head my body is saying otherwise- my heart is pounding, I am so hot and can
barely breathe.. Terrified to go home as feel
as though something bad will happen but too scared to stay out for same reason. I feel like nowhere is safe and I don't know what to do!

Thank you for advice, nothing is wrong at home, but my partner is away tonight and I genuinely feel like someone will attack me when i'm home alone. I know it's ridiculous but no matter how many times I tell myself that I still feel terrified... This happens often I end up sat in bed with a knife too scared to close my eyes because of what could happen. You're right though, I jut have to ride it out- I just wish it wasn't so hard and I didn't feel this panic! I didn't sleep at all last night so don't think sleep dep helps with paranoia... Thanks for replying before x

Not sure your situation but would it help if you did stuff around the house that made it feel more a safe haven even if your partner isn't there? Security screens, deadlocks and maybe a dog?

been there, done that. :unsure:
I remember one time I got so paranoid (cause nighttime and being alone scares me the most and I heard noises outside), and I spent an hour finding scrap wood pieces to board up the front door because the door was old and someone could have easily broken through it, and still I did not feel safe.
It absolutely terrifying to feel that way :(
so I can relate and I hope you will be ok.
