Im so pleased I’m not the only person that has these thoughts. I’m 18 years old, and the thoughts started when I was at school, thinking that whenever I heard laughing, it was me that was being laughed at, but since I’ve left school and gotten a job it’s gotten so much worse.

I literally worry about every little thing that I forget to do, and my brain imagines the worst case scenarios, and then it seems to triple them, so that it seems that much worse, but these are things that other people would just forget about instantly… Luckily my mum is very understanding, and I can speak all my fears to her, as she knows just by looking at me if I have something on my mind, and a lot of the time it does help, my boyfriend is also very good at listening to me and helping me work through my problems.

However, despite how much I talk it through, it doesn’t seem to help my paranoid thoughts from stopping, and I find myself leaving work with my brain running through a list of things I haven’t done, and then I panic about them, I think I’m going to have to go and see my GP, and see of he knows of anything I can do to help, but I’m glad that I’m not alone with these thoughts, so thank you for your own stories.
