AmyeH Posted December 10, 2011 Report Share Posted December 10, 2011 Hi all,I have anxiety, depression and mild OCD.I keep getting very paranoid thoughts which is causing my anxiety to spike at very high levels.I've never really had paranoid thoughts as such before and it's only really been in the last week or so am I experiencing this.For example. Right now. I'm sitting in my room on my laptop and I am facing the door. I can see people's shadows as they are walking past from the light under the door and I am getting visions of someone coming in and attacking me. It keeps playing out in my head and at the time, my heart starts to beat fast and breathing becomes laboured.The paranoid thoughts are mainly to do with people attacking me but I am getting other thoughts of me getting injured by an accident and stuff. For example, I was in the art class the other morning and the teacher was standing in front of me using scissors. I had visions in my head of her slipping and the scissors injuring me. I'll keep the details vague of course but the images and little films in my head playing out are really intense and graphic. Highly unpleasant.It's causing me to become a bit withdrawn which is not good at all too.What can I do to stop this from affecting me so much? I know that they are just thoughts and am trying to accept them, let them in and pass through and go out. But it doesn't help.Thanks.
