I am glad to heard the you have been improved, that your anxiety and paranoia has been decreased, and that you feel healthy enough to pray. I am also happy that you feel your mindset has returned to normal. I am wondering if you have been seeing a counselor and that’s been helping, or you are just getting closer to Allah (swt) and studying and gaining Islamic knowledge.
In any case, both avenues are recommended, and I highly suggest that you do engage in counseling if you feel paranoid or anxious again to the point where you feel you cannot pray. Allah has gifted different individuals with the ability and desire to want to go to school and become doctors and counselors so that we can take advantage of their services. Taking care of our mind, body, and spirituality is counted upon us as Muslims, and counseling is a very good thing for mental health problems. I am really happy and also proud of you that you have overcame your anxiety and paranoia…
For the rest of the answer, please listen to the video:
