How do you tell the difference?

How do you know what is real and what is paranoia .......unless someone tells you....and do you necessarily believe them?

How long does your paranoia usually last?

So confused. No idea what to believe. What is true and real and what is not.

Its a real conundrum this one. I usually work on what the majority would say and if they would disagree with me, I would go with that. I look at logical other explanations to the events and weigh them up as whether they are likely or not. I don't know if that helps at all.

Thank you Calypso.

I just don't know what's true and what's not. What to believe and what not. People seem to be turning against me.....and I don't know who to trust.

I'm scared. :cry2:

As for me, knowing i have a paranoid personality disorder i always put things that appear strange to me on paranoia. I always try to find logical explanations and find excuses to people. Like if i can find at least 9 logical reasons then it's not real
