No, most of the time it's not real, its just a paranoia. I observe peoples body language and rarely if ever do they give off signs of being suspicious of me. Actually it does happen when I'm in a low or anxious state and I'd be walking past a mother with their kid and the kid is walking behind, the mother will sometimes stop and wait for the kid to catch up.

Also not necessarily about you. :)
Just a normal thing to do when walking out with a kid, wait for them and mind how far behind they are... more about them, and minding them, than about Oh my gawd, every man here is a shady sucker. :)
Great thread SRG. I see that it's 2years old but have never seen it before. It's good that it's re-surfaced at the time of the upgrade. In answer to your question 'does anyone else feel this way'? Yes, I do sometimes. Comparing one person's trauma to another is very tricky. As my counsellor would say, 'one man's broken button is another's broken marriage '. It would be easier for me to have therapy for one trauma and try to 'get over it', however I have suffered multiple traumas in my life and the PTSD from all those mangled together really f*cks your head up. Like my counsellor says, 'I have lots of unresolved issues '. I'm going now because I want to carry on reading other people's posts.Starting it off. My own personal trauma, because I was abused by a woman, often makes me assume that people will see me as weak - especially compared with combat trauma. Does anyone else feel this way?
