Wink Re: Distinguishing between one or the other

Well... I honestly don't know the answer to your question. However I experience a lot of generalized anxiety & also some paranoia. I'm an older person & I don't recall ever feeling particularly paranoid when I was younger even though I struggled with a lot of anxiety back then too. Nowadays, though, paranoia is something that does come upon me particularly later at night.

Perhaps the paranoia I experience is simply a sign that, over time, the constant anxiety I have dealt with has "worn away" whatever layers of resistance I had when I was younger? Or perhaps it's a matter of my generalized anxiety just worsening? I don't really know. Actually, nowadays, I no longer even have anything in particular to be anxious about. But I think after so many years of running on my nerves, so to speak, my body just no longer knows how to function any other way.
Speak only if you can improve upon the silence.
