someone requested resources/tips for dealing with paranoia, there’s very few resources i’ve seen for this sort of thing, having dealt with it myself i know it’s pretty tough to deal with. here are some tips from my own experiences and a few websites (i’ll include links later in the post)
get enough sleep. i know it can be hard to get sleep sometimes, i’ve had terrible insomnia my whole life and its still a daily struggle to get enough rest, but getting enough sleep makes so much difference. if you struggle with sleeping here are some resources

for help with nightmares,

avoid drugs, alcohol and caffeine, i don’t want to sound like your middle school health teacher here but drugs and alcohol can really hurt you badly if you have any sort of mental disorder or if you’re on any medication. caffeine can trigger manic episodes and cause complications with adderall and other ADHD/ADD medication. even drugs that are used casually without any harmful effects can cause a bad reaction if your brain chemical balence is abnormal or if you’re on any medication.
eat well and drink lots of water. this is just a general health thing, if you’re not eating/drinking enough your whole system is out of wack
useful things to try during a paranoid episode, a lot of these are used in cognitive behavioural therapy, one of the most successful therapy techniques currently being used. if you have/could get access to a therapist/mental health professional ask about this method because a trained professional can really help in some cases.
recognize patterns of thought, think back to previous paranoid episodes and see how your thoughts develop and if they stem from a trigger of some sort. try and remember this pattern so you can recognize it in the future and use that realization to comfort yourself and remind yourself that your thinking isn’t rational 
write down a list of evidence to challenge your harmful thoughts. basically make two columns, write your thought down and then write evidence that supports your thought and evidence that doesn’t support it. something like this

this website is a really really excellent guide to self-help cognitive behavioural therapy
seriously click on this http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/psychosis.htm

#etc
Today, I was giving away a few KFC meals and drinks to the homeless people in the streets right after iftar.. I spotted a small (really thin) kid with a washcloth cleaning cars so I called him and gave him one of the meals.. he smiled at me took the meal and hid it in a black plastic bag, I was curious to why he did this .. the kid looked so thin he must be starving. I pretended I was leaving but parked the car just a few meters from where I saw him and waited to see what he was going to do with the meal. He left the meal for about two minutes and then returned with two boys of his age and a girl who shared the meal together. I thought he was going to sell the meal as soon as he wrapped the black plastic bag around it but I was wrong. I watched the kids share the meal and all of them were smiling and happy (at least for a few moments). I just stayed still in the car and imagined myself in this situation.. If I was handed that meal under those circumstances I wouldn’t even think twice before eating it. Society would think that i’m better than that kid because I’m educated, dress nicely and mainly because I have money but as a person and that’s what really matters I wouldn’t even compete with this kid. This kid is my role model now and I will always look up to him. If you just want to instantly feel better about yourself help other people.. that’s what life is all about ~
