A team at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London interviewed 1,200 people about whether they had thoughts about others doing them harm. 

They found levels of paranoia were much higher than previously suspected - and almost as high as those for depression and anxiety.

I always seem to think that strangers in cars will just run me over in parking lots.

What constitutes suspicious?

Ive just had odd fears but most of them have dissipated.

Like waking up one morning fried because my bed is next to 8 outlets and I would accidentally put my finger in one.

But Im still terrified of centipedes and heights.

I'm afraid of people coming in through my window at night and trying to take me, so I sleep with a dagger under my pillow and a fire poke under the top mattress.

You are all plotting against me...I KNOW IT!!!

I don't think that I have any suspicious fears. If you put me in a room with a psychologist to be analysed I am sure that they'd have something completely different to say.....................

Yes especially when it comes to relationships. I always think my boyfriends are pounding other chicks.
