    Im suffering from delusions, I think something's going to happen and get paranoid about it and at other times I think something happened but it didn't and I get convinced that it did then I get paranoid about it and can't stop thinking about it

    What shall I do to overcome this?

    Have you seen your GP about this? That would be by far the best thing you could do. Other than that, things like music and other distractions can help some people a bit and making sure you eat/sleep/exercise regularly definitely helps too. You still need to see your GP though if you can, preferably before things get any worse- these things won't cure them by any stretch of the imagination. Hope things improve a bit soon!

    I know this feeling exactly. like the person above, seeing your GP will help. CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) is a big hand for this type of thing and should be available through the NHS.

    The way I deal with sh*tty thoughts like this is just disregarding them as best i can, the only thing that really matters is the current moment. There's absolutely no point in getting yourself caught up worrying about things in the future that are yet to happen or things in the past that have happened and there's nothing you can do about them as all that really matters is now, the current moment!

    Have a look at practising being mindful and practising watching your thoughts rather than fixating on them.... also maybe go see your GP and they'll refer you to someone that can help a bit more.

    Hope this helps, I've been through and still struggle with similar things so you're not alone.

    The mind needs reigning back in now and again!

    This is good advice, I should take it.
