Hi
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I feel like I have ptsd or something
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I have been told by a few people and I see on myself that I am very paranoid and I feel anxiety a lot. I always feel like people are out to get me
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Sometimes my intuitions are not false but sometimes I genuinely feel like I see stuff that might not actually be there
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
I am always overthinking too much and especially when I drink I feel like this side of me comes out a lot to a point where I feel so threatened by people that I attack them
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Or paranoid shall I say
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 16 days ago.

okay thanks, ***** ***** these are all mental health issues.

Have you considered psychotherapy to discuss and explore some of these problems? It is possible to have a formal psychiatric assessment but not initially on the NHS, but privately it would be.

Certainly it is a psychological problem, may not fit one diagnosis, but psychological management will help you.

No, how do I consider this
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Like is there anybody I can contact
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 16 days ago.

Are you looking to manage this on the NHS or privately?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Privately because I’m sure they’ll be a long waiting list on the NHS won’t there
Expert:  Tim Brown replied 16 days ago.

That is true, therefore any Psychologist would likely help. Where are you based please?
