Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

The symptoms like feelings that people are going to hit you, not liking people standing along with you, keeping everything secret, plans to kill people etc should not be ignored. Such symptoms could occur due to some underlying anxiety disorder or due to some paranoid ideation. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for proper evaluation and treatment. Emotional mood, sensitivity to being blamed or rejection etc points more towards anxiety disorder.

Medicines like SSRIs as fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline can help to reduce the anxiety and will result in improving your confidence. If symptoms comes to be psychotic then medicines like low dose olanzapine can help. Visit a psychiatrist for prescription of these drugs.

Thanks, hope this helps you.
