Fear do the paranormal/paranoia?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've always feared paranormal things. Especially demons and the devil (even putting that scares me), but the past few days it's been really bad.

There's been this guy I've liked for a long time, years even and up until yesterday I thought we would never happen and now that we have I've suddenly got this intense fear that it's something to do with paranormal. I know it's ridiculous and it's just my overtired, over anxious mind working overtime as usual but I can't control if and it's making me feel physically sick and shaky. I've felt out of it all day like I'm on drugs and it's really freaking me out and upsetting me because I had a really lovely weekend with him but this stupid fear is ruining it!

Please can someone help me to rationalise this and tell me it's normal? I'm scared that it could be some form of psychosis/schizophrenia!

    Hi, as you say its just anxiety tricking your mind.

    Maybe because you felt so good at the weekend, that you really really want this relationship to work, therefor there is an extra pressure on your mind...... meaning that you have come up with this catastrophie....

    It will pass when the anxiety settles down, and you will think rationally again.

    Your not schizophrenic or psychotic......... if you were you would have no idea that you were.... Nobody who has a psychotic episode ever knows that they are having one.

    So if you are scared of being psychotic, it means you are definetly not.

    This is just anxiety... Create a STOP sign in your mind.

    Do some deep breathing and some exercise.
