We think paranoid worries are very common but that they are rarely discussed.People seldom share their experiences of having unfounded or excessive suspicious thoughts.
People with paranoid schizophrenia tend to fare better than those suffering from one of the other subtypes.
Untreated, people with psychotic disorders lose their ability to function in daily life.
Typically, a paranoid schizophrenic experiences auditory hallucinations along with deluded thought processes and beliefs.
However it can be helpful to hear that others have similar thoughts and it can also be beneficial to write about our own suspicious thoughts.
Therefore in this section we are keen for people to send us brief written accounts of their paranoid or suspicious experiences (up to 500 words).
