One of the symptoms of BPD that still affects me often is paranoid ideation. All through elementary and high school, I was made fun of every day. Now, whenever I see people looking my way and laughing and I can’t hear what they’re saying, I think they’re teasing me. I can usually talk myself out of it but sometimes I can’t. When that happens, I do some self-soothing by doing something like listening to music, and try to distract myself until the thoughts subside.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? What do you do that helps you deal with paranoid thoughts? Please let me know in the Comments below. Thanks!
Till next time,
