I think i m being followed by people and i think everyone who deals with me is connected to that secret power.. i m a muslim and i think that someone is trying to get me in trouble and i go to mosque once a week to get away from troubles in my life but i think my going to mosque and being muslim is putting me in trouble.....i think my phone is being listened to and i m suspicious of my neighbours and my friends and everyone that i know....wen someone is talkin to me i think the person is trying to convey hidden messages..or wen he is making a joke i think his joke is targeted at me....i m aware of the fact that these things that are happening to me might not be true as i suffer from depression but then again they seem so real ...i mistrust every person around me bcos i think people either take advantage of me or they might put me in trouble..but i still keep myself calm and try to act normal as much as i can but somtimes i think that i might think that i act normal but other people will notice my abnormality.....can a doctor pleez tell me what is my problem and if these things can be really happening to someone.........i m a very intelligent guy otherwise ..i m on a part time course and my teachers say i m doing well but i m scared i might go deeper in these thoughts and feelings and might end up schezophrenic..
thank u on advance

I would strongly recommend that you be evaluated by a qualified psychiatric professional. There are often crisis centers that can see patients on a walk-in basis rather than having to wait for an appointment.
Symptoms of paranoia can be associated with schizophrenia but they can also be symptoms of other illnesses. It is likely that there is a treatment that can help or significantly improve your symptoms.
