A year ago, I was the most laid back person ever, didn't worry or stress about hardly anything. But overtime, I've been getting very paranoid. Now I'm at the point where I Have to check things 5-10 times and if I don't, I'll stress out like shit about it. I think it came from my Mom because she is a little paranoid, checks things a few times, and also comes from getting caught doing shit, so now I try to be more careful, but I've grown to be too careful. It's a bunch of small things too, like when I park my car, I'll check like 6 times to make sure its in the right gear, and sometimes after I walk away from the car, I'll have to go back and check again. It's hard to describe how it really is, but I am so paranoid it makes me so uneasy and stressed out all the time, so stressed out I get headaches. Like if I see someone far away laughing, I'll think they are laughing at me and I'll freak out. I worry about everything and it makes my life horrible. Sometimes I'll read over my post like 8 times just to make sure its right, even though there are no problems. Its such a pain in the ass. I described it the best I could so if any of you could offer any advice, please help.
