Extreme paranoia...
 
Well, I'm not exactly sure where to post this.

Ever since I was younger I've had trust issues, maybe about third grade...when everything began. I'm at the point where it feels like everyone is lying to me and wants to hurt me; even those who have no reason to. In about ninth grade I started hearing things that weren't there...people laughing at me when no one was around. I started seeing shadows of people following me, but every time I turn around there isn't anyone there. Lately these feelings have become a lot more aggressive towards me. Today they got to the point I broke down crying while they screamed at me. Does anyone have a suggestion on coping with these feelings? I'm scared because it's getting stronger...

This must be really scary for you, especially with the shadows and the voices.
Maybe write a diary saying your feelings, and definately try and get help. Counselling, speaking to a doctor, friend or relative, anything to get your feelings out, because you will feel better for telling someone.
It's a tough world, and to trust someone is a hard thing to do, but try and see the people who are really close to you and speak to them. Talking to a stranger might help more. But you have wrote on this forum, and that is the first step to make, now try and go a bit further by telling someone face to face. I know telling a parent might be hard but try talking to them, and if you really can't then speak to someone else.
Well done for taking that first step, it must gave taken you a lot of courage to do that.
If you ever want to talk, im always here. I will never judge you, and i will help the best I can. Good luck with your future and i will support you with whatever decision you make, and I'm sure your family and friends would to.

This sounds exactly like early-onset schizophrenia. You need to be seen by a psychiatrist. I'm not trying to scare you, but rather express how important it is that you see a psychiatrist right away. This is not the sort of thing that goes away without treatment.
