Do you think everyone is staring at you or following you? I find it too overwhelming when I'm having delusions and paranoid thoughts about people and going to places where there's a lot of people. I act normal, but deep down things seem so, so staged.

Any one relate?

I only get somewhat paranoid/frustrated when I am in an environment that other schizophrenics/telepaths are close by or reside.

I think everything is a power game with people in public, that people analyze my every movement and thought. I just try and act right and polite but not too polite.

Do you also not understand how to respond to someone else's politeness? I dont know how to reciprocate it and feel awkward and rude. Maybe I'm just rude.

My paranoia is usually of people watching me or following me and it is usually coupled with hallucinations. I used to get suspicions in the past and sometimes I may feel a little suspicious but I usually have enough of my mind to think past it and know that my suspicions are irrational.
