I am under the age of 16 and I always feel scared, like all the time. My friends just think I'm over reacting and I don't feel like i can tell my parents as I think they wouldn't take me seriously. I am constantly thinking that every person I see (no matter how innocent they look) is out to get me. I have googled things that could be wrong which I don't think was the best idea but I felt completely alone. It kept coming up with anxiety and paranoia which I don't think I could have but I just don't know what could be wrong with me. It is stopping me from going out with my friends and having s good childhood because everytime I'm out I just get really scared and wish I was back at home, but when I'm at home I feel equally as scared like a can't leave draws open at night or have to prop my door open with some sort of object and just little things like that. If anyone knows anything on how to overcome this or is feeling the same leave a reply.
