    I'm not sure if what you're expressing is general anxiety. Are these almost panic attacks? You used the word paranoia. I agree with Bolt and Wiseman. Best to get a doctor's evaluation or re-evaluation. The therapy isn't helping you or it's not at a level or frequency that is helpful enough. Take a closer look also at the new relationship and what those triggers are. Maybe this person isn't good for you either or has characteristics that you're drawn to but should avoid.

    Can you give an example of the paranoia?

    Find an outlet to channel that anxiety into, preferably something productive. Take up a hobby, something your into that can help focus you on something else.

    Health is a major component as well. Eat smart, exercise, get plenty of sleep. Keeping our bodies healthy can help our mental state and vice versa.

    While medication can help, it won't address the core issues causing this. Plus, the body will adjust and you'll need to take something else or higher doses. If you can find alternatives, it would be useful. Maybe these can give you something to start with:

    If all else fails, color. I know a good number of people who find adult coloring books to be relaxing, calming, and therapeutic.
