Okay so.. I.. think I'm going crazy? For the past couple of days, I've been feeling like.. I'm being watched all the time. I know this just means I'm a little more paranoid than others but the thing is I've never felt this before. Even like a few months ago, I could do anything I wished outside. Even if people did watch me I didn't notice it. But these days I weirdly feel like someone is watching me constantly starting from when I wake up till when I go to bed. Even when I'm safe in my room, I just always feel like I'm being watched. And it's SO ANNOYING. So I've just started to deal with this odd feeling and I don't give it much of a thought anymore. And yesterday something totally weird happened. I went shopping with my family. And when we got into our car and took a turn to get on the main road, I saw a guy with big eyes and tan skin with a black hoodie on staring at me. He also had this.. scarf. A small checkered ash scarf which he used as a mask. But it was okay, I mean, I was looking at him too. I thought, yeah, it was just an awkward eye contact. But when we finished shopping, I got a little detached from my family. I was mad at my mom because she scolded me for no reason at all. So I was walking alone while my parents were wayyy behind me in the crowded area. When I came closer to the gate to get out of the shopping complex, I saw that same tan-skinned guy with those big eyes and that black hoodie and that same ash checkered scarf on his face looking at me again. I didn't realize it was the same guy right then. But then as I got closer to the gate, he started coming towards the gate from outside too. There was a cardboard.. poster thingie outside the gate. When I reached the gate I stopped and waited for my family to catch up as I was kinda scared of that guy. And he stopped as well! He stood right behind the cardboard. When we went out of the gate together, I saw that guy still staring at me. Then he started following me. I was pretty tired from carrying 6 shopping bags and my own side bag as well so I just went to the area where people waited for their cars to come from the parking. It has to be about 5 seconds that I looked away from that guy. And where we were at this point, there wasn't any crowd and the place was really huge and open so you could easily spot someone from far away. 5 seconds later I looked at where I saw that shady guy the last time and he wasn't there. I looked around and he was nowhere. I looked to the furthest distance but he wasn't there. Besides, how far can someone walk in 5 seconds? If someone ran in that calm place everyone would've noticed. But no. He was just.. gone.. And then I remembered that he was the same guy I saw when I was outside my house. So here's it.. no, I am not saying that someone is stalking me and keeping an eye on me. But I.. am I going crazy? Like is it possible that my head maybe created this.. character.. who kinda looks like my ex? Is it possible that my brain made this imaginary stalker to.. scare itself? I mean how else could he just disappear? And apparently, my parents didn't notice anyone following me or looking at me like that. I'm just so confused.. Am I sick?
