Paranoia OCD is a lesser known form of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Often times, this form of OCD is confused with individuals that are actually suffering from Paranoia. This is because individuals suffering from this form of OCD are often left fearing that someone is out to get them, has a vendetta against them, or a belief that people are judging them as a strange, different, or odd person. Individuals suffering from Paranoia OCD will also have difficulty trusting others, including family and friends, because of potential hidden or ulterior motives/intentions. They can even have the belief that the government or other institutions, such as pharmaceutical companies and large businesses are purposely trying to harm them and others. As a result, it is not uncommon for these individuals to perform mental compulsions by trying to figure out, needing to know, or ruminating about such obsessional fears.
