Default paranoid of others

I have "learned" to become paranoid of other people having been wronged so often by so called freinds I once had. I fear yet another let down in my life and feel by avoiding people I won't get that disappointment once again. The one online freind I do have is stuck in the hospital and they don't even know if she will live.. I often relish my "alone time" and get upset when it gets intterupted by someone. I guess I am just not a likeable person and very opinionated. I was also abused by a mean aunt I had when i was young and it still haunts me and reminds me how cruel some people can be.

Welcome! I'm sorry you've had such bad experiences with people. No wonder you're feeling some paranoia. However, to my way of thinking, the best way to deal with it is to try to make some friends, chat with folks, and get involved in some fun things in a place like this one. You will find some other folks who also have had some experiences where they feel like they have been burned by others, too.

Have you actually been diagnosed with "Paranoid Personality Disorder"? If not, then you will probably want to post in other forums.

I can totally relate for years and years now I have been screwed over by people I was dating so now when I date new people I almost suspect the worst to happen even when nothing does actually go on or happen.

Hi there. i can totally relate to all of your posts. i too am paranoid by others. i have ben wronged myself by others, but especially my own family. So without even realizing it i too have been isolating myself and don't want to be much in the company of others. i just want to be alone. i know that is not the healthy way to live, at least not for me but right now i see no other solution.
