Is there a way to reduce my paranoia?

Ever since I tried to kill myself, I have been really paranoid. I have to sit with my back to a wall and am constantly looking over my shoulder. I can't help it. I have recently started going to church with my girlfriend, and I can't stop checking my surroundings. I need help, preferably not medication.

Please find a Good councillor. It is not a sign of weaknesses to find help, in fact some of the strongest people I know have seeked help when life became to difficult to face alone. I commend you for going to Church. That is a giant helping step. I would talk to the Bishop, Minister or leader of the Church you are attending to see if they recommend a councillor. Make sure any councillor is licensed and check references. The best of luck to you as you better your life.

i am a master of the crane style technique of kung fu and i have also learned inner peace. you may want to sign up for fun, yet peaceful activities like kung fu, ect... to calm your mind.

Try to relax and distract yourself with some fun (eg. day at the amusement park), then perhaps eventually you will reduce your paranoia. Remember it takes time though~

it takes time. this is my wife's account. when I first got out of prison I couldn't even go to store. had to have my back against something. would feel uneasy when I was around people. just hang in there. It gets better.
Now that wifeys back she says pray about it at church. :0)
