  1. I remember in the third grade I've always had this strong feeling that my classmates were at the window or behind the door listening and observing everything I do. I don't think it's as bad now, but when I'm outside I always feel as if I'm being watched through windows, through the bushes, and behind my back. I always believe there some sort of hidden motive when someone is nice to me. I'm aware that this kind of paranoia is typical of social phobia, but I haven't had social anxiety when I was a kid. Were those thoughts normal for a kid?

    I think that if you were in an abusive environment, that might be a normal reaction

    otherwise though, it sounds like paranoia
