I would like to draw to the readers attention an author called Michael Sweeny and the many books he has published.
One of his books called "The Professional Paranoid" where he coins the term "Proparanoid"
link to Sweeny's site
excerpt from his site:
PROPARANOID? What does it mean?
1) paranoid ~ a medical term applied to someone who mistakenly fears being persecuted by others... followed, spied upon, stalked, threatened, etc.
2) opposite of paranoid ~ sorry, there is no medical term in the English language for someone properly reacting to ACTUAL persecution. Some say
'cautious' is the word, but ONLY the victim seems to use that word, usually in self defense against suggestions of being paranoid. Why? Our
civilization, certainly as exemplified by professionals within law enforcement, the courts, and medical institutions, simply does not want to believe
in conspiracy or bogeymen. If you ask for help, you are simply dismissed as being paranoid, even if you have proof to the contrary - they don't want
to hear it, and the victim is victimized a second time in a whole new way.
Paranoia does not necessarily mean that the person is imagining things and it most definitely does not mean they are schizophrenic.
There are very real crimes of stalking and harassment that are happening to citizens of the world and Michael Sweeny is an individual who helps people
who know they are being persecuted in the community.
