I always feel like someone it watching, me even in my own home. If someone has given me a gift sometimes I think they put a secret camera in it to spy on me. Or, even if someone hasn’t given me a gift I still feel like someone is watching me. I tell myself that no one is watching me but I still think about it.
I would really love to go outside, but I always feel like my neighbors are watching me. Maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. I try to tell my self to ignore that but I can’t so I mostly stay inside when I’m home.
Strangely enough, I almost never even think that I’m being watched when I’m with other people. I do go out in public, I don’t stay home all the time but when I do go out in public I always like to have someone go with me or else it feels like everyone around me is staring at me. Which they probably do see me when they are looking around but I just feel..uncomfortable and awkward being in public and outside alone.
I asked a question similar to this only I didn’t mention that I felt like I was being watched inside and some of the answers said I could have Agoraphobia, but after looking up the symptoms and the definition of it I do not think I do. Now after I am done typing this it seems really stupid to think I’m being watched but I just can’t help it, even if I do tell myself no one is watching me.
So anyway, do you think this is strange? Or what could I do to make myself stop thinking this?
