I am nearly 21 and over the last 6 months I have noticed that I am becoming extremely paranoid of those around me especially my friends and colleagues at work, all I think about is that they are plotting to screw me over or take advantage of me to better themselves and its driving me insane! I cannot trust anyone and don’t want to talk or interact with anyone. on top of this I have just met a wonderful girl who would be a perfect girlfriend and because of my paranoia it is driving me away from her and causing tension between us. I used to use a lot of different varieties of recreational drugs up until I realised that something was wrong and still drink large amounts of alcohol which I suppose doesn’t help but it seems the only release for me at the moment and I feel like there is no-one to turn to!
