Hello all, I'm new to this site. This is my first post.

Well I'll cut to the chase, lately over the past few months I've been feeling paranoid. Mostly that someone is going to falsely accuse me of a crime, even though I haven't committed any crimes. It's especially worse if I get into an argument with someone, then I automatically think that person will accuse me of a crime. I know it's an irrational thought but I can't shake it, it's giving me anxiety. Should I see a doctor about this? Does anyone here have any tips of how I can overcome this feeling?

I have dealt with similar things like this, actually a big one for me that was hard to shake was the feeling that I may be poisoned or drugged by someone. You just have to accept the fact that it is just a thought and there is no actual weight to it. You know what kind of person you are, and at the end of the day, you know that it's just an irrational thought. I still sometimes suffer from the thought of being poisoned or drugged, but whenever it happens, I just give it it's space and it eventually subsides. Yours should as well, as long as you recognize that it's just a thought, and you cannot control it. I hope this helps.

Yes this actually does help. I guess I'm waiting for this feeling to just go away on its own. It's weird because I never used to have these thoughts in the past, it just happened suddenly out of nowhere. The thoughts started off with small/minor things and then they grew into something much worse and now I just feel exhausted from worrying all the time. But anyway, I appreciate your feedback and I will try to incorporate your advice into my thought process on a daily basis. Hopefully I'll gradually start to feel better. Thanks!
