Over the past year I have developed some unusual ways of thinking and behavior that I have no idea how to handle. I have become more and more socially withdrawn. I never leave my house, and rarely get out of bed. My fiance has been trying to get me to be more active socially and physically, but I somehow always end up staying home. This has gone on for over a year and has become worse and worse as each day passes. It’s not that I’m scared to leave my house, I just don’t want to deal with people, and I am paranoid that everywhere I go people are watching me, talking about me, and judging me. Next, I have become very unorganized. I used to be a complete control freak and now I have piles and piles of clothes everwhere, dirty dishes, food wrappers etc, and I have no interest in cleaning because I know where everything is. Next (This scares my fiance the most) I have become very paranoid and scared about demons. I think they are out to get me. I somehow convice myself that when I open the door to my room, or the shower curtain, or when I look in the mirror a demon will appear and try to hurt me. I constantly think about this and it keeps me from getting out of bed, getting out of the shower, and looking in the mirror. When I lay in bed at night and close my eyes, I always feel like a demon is hovering over me. Or when I am home alone, I feel like they follow me around and end up running everywhere I go. The fear is paralyzing. Next, I have trouble concentrating and communicating with my fiance and family because my head is so cluttered with thoughts. There’s always a million different thoughts going on at once, some I can make out, some I can not. Some are whispered thoughts, and some are screaming thoughts that won’t go away. They all have different tones of voices, some more aggresive than others. I don’t know if I am making any sense. This is my most recent symptom, and it’s keeping me from falling asleep. Over the year I have also started to neglect my personal hygeine because of what’s going on inside of my head. If I don’t go out, I won’t shower or brush my teeth for weeks. I sometimes don’t eat for a few days, because I’m scared to leave my bed. I even onnce urinated in a trashcan because I was paranoid to leave my room, because my roommate had company and I did not want to deal with people. These symptoms are starting to ruin my life and I don’t know what to think of them. I know they are not normal. What do you think it is, and what are some steps I can take in dealing with this?
