I was in a abusive relationship 2 years ago and I'm now experiencing paranoia at night of my ex coming back and finding me. He has also said some creepy morbid things too that freaked me out.

He's in a different state but his mom still lives in town. He knows where I live, he knows where I work.
I'm checking the doors every night to make sure they're locked.
I'm moving to a different state in several months so I hope that will help me relax.

Is there a particular reason you feel he maybe coming back?

His mom still lives in the same town as me, so he has a reason to visit (if they're still in contact.) And I live in the suburbs, so it wouldn't be that difficult for him to find me if he wanted to.
I already changed my number and blocked him on social media.

Unfortunately no. :/ I wish. Hanging in there though.

@Anxiousflower Ok, sounds reasonable. However, I'd also suggest getting a restraining order. Yes, it is only a piece of paper. However, if he shows up at your front door and you call the police, there isn't much they can do. With a restraining order, at least he can be arrested for violating it.
