Hello everyone, I'm just gonna start out with that I am younger than 18 and I am haunted with anxiety, everyone knows me as a smiley happy person but inside im socially insecure, but that isn't my main problem, I have lately been afraid of any mythical-ish creature that I see on TV or videos, for example weeping angels from Doctor Who, these fears are extremely weird because in my mind, I know they aren't real, but I am still afraid of them. I simply told myself that I was being paranoid, but it started getting worse! I now feel watched when I'm alone, for example bathrooms, showers... And I get this strange feeling when I go to bed, like a whoosh or a wave of anxiety and fears, and it keeps me awake far too long then it should. I've been taking melatonin but I'm afraid my body may have grown too fond for it and now sees it as a regular thing rather then something to make me sleep. I'm not sure if I should tell my parents, what if I'm just paranoid! And more then that HOW CAN SOMEONE HELP ME..,
