Feeling insecure, suspicious, sensitive, fearful and worried ... all these symptoms suggest severe anxiety disorder and may not be psychosis since from your description, it seems that you are insighful that these experiences are not real. However it is important to rule out the possibility of psychosis and rule out any underlying physical health cause, stress related symptoms or even symptoms related to substance use. Please consult a psychiatrist for comprehensive assessment of your condition and appropriate treatment. From your description it sounds like you will need cognitive behavior therapy and may be medicine too. Don't worry. It is treatable. Regards
