Hello.

You need to check if you have a firm belief that someone is watching you, or you are aware that it is just a thought you can identify as unreal. Please consult with your prescribing doctor about this.

You may need to monitor your depression and anxiety. You might probably be overly anxious about Schizophrenia, especially after reading about it. There is usually an underlying fear that might cause you to worry constantly. You may need to talk with your doctor so that your anxieties are addressed.

Hope this helps. Take care.
