Default paranoia or delusion

I've never posted on this board before and don't know much about schizophrenia.

For over a year I've been seriously worried that my neighbor has bugged my house and listens to what my wife and I talk about. I also feel like she watches me whenever I'm outside.

On a logical level, I know the chances of my house being bugged is probably nill. Watching me while I'm outside is a different story.

A little background: I have a small innocent crush on my neighbor. Nothing serious. My wife knows and we even joke about it. This neighbor is very nice and our kids play with each other.

Is this a simple case of paranoia or is it a delusion and something I should be worried about?

Just sounds like paranoia to me. Try not to focus too much on the thought is all I can say. If it gets to the point you are honestly afraid or it's growing into other things then maybe something is going on but right now it doesn't sound like anything to worry about.
