This feeling is driving me crazy

I always feel like people are going to hurt me or con me and I will go to extreme lengths to make sure that doesn't happen. I don't believe anyone and really want no interaction in my life.

How to stop these feelings?

Is It Normal?

  • I actually feel the same way. It's a trauma response and it's your brain and body's way of protecting you because you've been fucked in the past. It lives in the amygdala from what I read. Try to slowly trust people in subtle ways. Give them a little bait. Just a little at a time and test them before totally shutting everyone out. I get you though. My family fucked me up in the head big time. I've had my credit card info hacked into like 5 times in the past two years. I've had a person harassing me with fake numbers talking shit to me and literally sending me pictures of shit. I pretty much hate humans at this point and feel the entire world is out to get me and this is all just a game. They're trying to make us snap... fuck them. but there are a few good people.. just like 2

  • Classic neurotic paranoia. Tell your doc you need to see a therapist.
