I am under the care of a therapist and diagnosed as Paranoia. I have neighbors that are - to me - bizarre methods of 'getting even for my smoking'. (I've almost stopped. Did stop for three weeks, but the problems never went away, so I went back to it. They send odors of smoke into my home somehow. One part of me says it's not possible, the other 'freaks out' and I wind up with a panic attack. I have been 'getting feisty' lately, with loud comments to them, like "Thank You. You just made my day!" etc. I also belong to a group who meets weekly. What coping skills should I use? I just want to get back to my "old self" as soon as possible. Thank you.
