Whenever I go out in public places like a shopping centre or retail park people look at me and laugh/giggle and I don’t know what their problem is. I respond by looking at them back seriously and sometimes I feel paranoid because of this. I feel like hitting them because I just feel humiliated whenever someone does this. What should I do?

Most often whenever I’m in a busy place (not all the time) people just smile and one or two people laugh whilst I’m walking past them. They could just be laughing at something else IDK but it’s a problem for me

When I tell people this happens to me, I get told I'm "delusional" and it's simply a "symptom of my schizophrenia".

Tbh though, buddy, teenagers are ***** and do laugh at people in the street.

Chances are they aren't laughing at you.

No, they aren't.

Why would they be laughing at you?

I try to act normal and walk along but sometimes I can’t help it and get angry for some reason which probably makes it worse

Are you wearing a t-shirt with a hilarious slogan on it?

But seriously though, why would they be laughing at you?

If I knew, I'd change it so they don't laugh. But it's either because I'm a government experiment and they're being paid to, or, more likely I admit, they don't like my clothes, hair, where I'm looking, how I'm walking, because they're ****s, because they're wimps, because I'm alone. All manner of reasons! And I guarantee this is happening to OP too.

This has occurred in the past five months and I feel like moving areas because of this situation. I just came back from the gym and walked into Sainsbury’s with about three people laughing, two were right in front of my face pretending to look away as I looked at them.

Most teens aren't going to laugh at people just because they are walking past.

This does sound like you are paranoid.

Is there anything about your appearance that people might find funny, or perhaps shocking (and their laughter is of the nervous variety)?

if you are sure they are laughing at you, then there must be a reason that they laugh at you.

Treetop321 bingo.
Teenagers are generally the people that laugh randomly in public as well. I don't see many middle-age people laughing in the street, but I can think of many teenagers who do this (including me). It doesn't mean they are laughing at you.
