Is this normal?? - June 5th 2012, 06:52 PM

Everywhere I go I always have to find an escape route. In every room, place or house I go into I have to make a scenario on how to get out. I also analyze people to see if they could be a threat or be a danger...I'm not claustrophobic or anything so it doesn't make any sense. I haven't had any bad things happen to me that would trigger this. I just feel like someone is always out there looking for me...I also had nightmares in the past that were really bad, but those seem to die down, that or I got use to them. But this paranoia is noticeable, my friends laugh and say that I'm a spy because I'm always looking over my back and staring at people to get a reading on them. I also have hyperactive reflexes, I don't know if that effects this or not but they do make me kind of jumpy....any ideas?

Hey (:

I haven't voted because I don't think it's possible to vote on "normal", I mean what's normal for one person is completely abnormal for another? There's no way to vote on normality!
My opinion on what you're saying is that there doesn't seem to be a problem unless it is detrimental to your everyday life? Do you think that your perceived paranoia is having a negative impact on your day to day life? If you think it is then maybe you could talk to someone about it? I don't think that there is anything wrong with being cautious, some people naturally are more observant of the world around them and have a greater sense of self preservation, others (including myself!) are completely unaware of what is going on around them and the people that surround them.
You say that your friends notice and laugh about it, do you think they're saying it because they are concerned or just because they're your friends and like to laugh about things (I know my friends mock me all the time, so I'm just covering all the bases!). If you think your friends are concerned then maybe you should address the reasons that they might be concerned, do you think your paranoia is impacting your ability to approach new or unknown situations and people?
Ultimately I would say that if you are worried about these things, especially the nightmares, then you should feel able to talk to a doctor or someone else who's more aware of behavioural attributes about them. If you're not worried then relax But that is only my opinion?[/size][/color][/font]

Its always good to know how to analyze people as you described.I do this as well... I feel nervous around certain people to know they are bad.... only find out later that the person Ifelt nervous around committed a crime, so Its always good to have that kind of sixth sense.
