Chronic pain and insomnia frequently co-occur, and most chronic pain patients experience interrupted or poor sleep quality. The differences are analogous to the differences between paranoia and hypervigilance. paranoia is a form of mental illness; the cause is thought to be internal, eg a minor variation in the balance of brain chemistry is a response to an external event (violence, accident, disaster, violation, intrusion, bullying, etc) and therefore an injury wears off (gets better), albeit slowly, when the person is out of and away from the situation which was the cause the paranoiac will not admit to feeling paranoid, as they cannot see their paranoia. the hypervigilant person is acutely aware of their hypervigilance, and will easily articulate their fear, albeit using the incorrect but popularised word "paranoia" drugs are not viewed favourably by hypervigilant people, except in extreme circumstances, and then only briefly; often drugs have no effect, or can make things worse, sometimes interfering with the body's own healing process the paranoiac often has delusions of grandeur; the delusional aspects of paranoia feature in other forms of mental illness, such as schizophrenia the hypervigilant person often has a diminished sense of self-worth, sometimes dramatically so paranoia is often seen in conjunction with other symptoms of mental illness, but not in conjunction with symptoms of PTSD hypervigilance is seen in conjunction with other symptoms of PTSD, but not in conjunction with symptoms of mental illness the hypervigilant person is hypersensitized but is often aware of the inappropriateness of their heightened sensitivity, and can identify the person responsible for their psychiatric injury the sense of persecution felt by the paranoiac is a delusion, for usually no-one is out to get them the hypervigilant person's sense of threat is well-founded, for the serial bully is out to get rid of them and has often coerced others into assisting, eg through mobbing; the hypervigilant person often cannot (and refuses to) see that the serial bully is doing everything possible to get rid of them the hypervigilant person cannot bring themselves to believe that the bully cannot and will not see the effect their behaviour is having; they cling naively to the mistaken belief that the bully will recognise their wrongdoing and apologise Other differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury include: People suffering Complex PTSD as a result of bullying report consistent symptoms which further help to characterise psychiatric injury and differentiate it from mental illness.
