I am paranoid and anxious..its getting worse.
I am a teenage girl and I have always been somewhat of a paranoid person all my life, but i feel like these past few months it has been getting worse. Lately I have been feeling paranoid about leaving my house and forgetting to turn off an appliance. About a month ago when I left for a trip I had this feeling that I left the sink on..I was seriously a nervous wreck. I had a hard time enjoying the trip and I made my mom call the water company to check that there was no water running in the house. A few nights ago, I went to the movies and felt like I left the straightener on (when i didn't even straighten my hair!) (The straightener was just laying on the counter because my sister had used it.) The whole time I was out at the movies, I questioned whether I had turned it on by accident. I HATE feeling like this. No one else in my family is paranoid and it makes me feel so stupid. I just worry too much and need help with it. Any suggestions? I am so stressed out and am wondering if I can ever fix this.
