Paranoia, Sign, Hypochondriatic, or Guilty Conscience?
An_246781 posted:
I swear, everything I hear, see on tv, read, is about HIV. It's like everyday, it's brought up. I was reading a normal everyday book, it came up in there. Watching a few shows, someone comes up with it in the show. Did a project for a course, came up in the assignment. Why am I seeing it everywhere?! Am I over-rationalizing? Is this all coincidental? Or is this a sign or everything just feeding into my paranoia? I know it sounds a little silly...any thoughts?

Heck, how are we to know why you believe everything you see, hear or read is about HIV.

I work with HIV positive patients and even I don't see, hear or read about this every day.
