Paranoia is something that has plagued me for almost my entire life. It can ruin relationships between family, friends and anyone who tries to help you. You believe people who are actually trying to help you are trying you hurt you. Paranoia can make it hard to get help because you don’t trust anyone around you. Being schizophrenic, I thought the voices in my head telling me not to trust anyone were right, and that I shouldn’t tell anyone about what I was experiencing. I decided to make an infographic about signs, causes and treatments of paranoia. I hope you find it informative. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. – Michelle, Creator of Schizophrenic.NYC
