Dont beat yourself up over it.
If you are not well then it cant be helped.
Anything you would like to talk about? Whats made you feel this way?

Have you spoken to anyone else about this? Do you suffer with paranoia a lot?
What helps you when you feel paranoid?

When I last spoke to my gp I told her and at the time I recognised it was paranoia so she let that sleep and currently nothing blaring music into my ears to drown out the thoughts but seems to be getting worse I believe my family are against me

Sleep is really good for mental health. If you are not sleeping well you will begin to feel worse in my opinion and my experience.

Remember that they are just thoughts. They cannot hurt you. I get them all the time..intrusive thoughts and although they are distressing to me i know that i do not have to act on them and that they will go away with some distraction techniques.

I am sleeping but very broken I'll wake up through the night to check who is outside the house then go back to sleep once I've proven to myself no new cars or Van's are in the street

Could you ask your gp to refer you for some talking therapies? I found that helpful for me to talk to someone professional.

I cant advise on that one, i cannot keep friends. I just dont have the personality/motivation to sustain friends in the real world. I find people too much hard work, too demanding or they are not interested in me (only out for themselves) thats just the people i attract.
Hopefully your therapist will help you work through that and give you some practical advice!
