Various weird, worrying symptoms

Hey guys I did post something a bit similar a while back but some things feel a bit different.
Basically im concerned because lately:

-Ive been having weird paranoid/non logical thoughts that deep down I know arent true but feel persuasive and try to reel me in. These are often things that im am aware schizophrenics become deluded by, e.g the goverment are observing me < I know its not true at all but Its very hard to shake the idea and I start considering (not to a very serious degree).

- In the past few months Ive had some bad anxiety surrounding all the wierd thoughts/feelings and I really felt I was on the brink of insanity despite being able to live normally and do all the things I normally do. Now however Ive started to feel more normal about these symptoms and they dont worry me or feel wierd, this concerns me because I feel like this means im actually going crazy.

- I just feel like I have nothing much to say about anything, not like I dont want to talk to people because I enjoy having good conversations with friends and family but its just like I have strangely little to bring up at all and feel so empty and blank minded.

I just feel like im losing insight these things which gets me concerned about psychosis/schizophrenia and all that stuff. I say concerned because I dont actually feel worry or anxiety :/ I have no reaction to it at all I just have an awareness that these things are bad and that I dont really want them to happen. kinda like I dont care about anything at all right now and have the same reaction to pretty much everything.

Feedback would be so much appreciated. Thanks

I agree with Selig, schizophrenics truly believe these things without much question. And a lot of times it's family members or friends who notice the symptoms, not the actual person with the disorder because they're so out of touch that they don't know they've lost touch with reality. (I may or may not have done a little reading on the subject out of my own paranoid thoughts of having it, lol)

I've also experienced feeling more normal about my symptoms and I definitely get the blank mind thing, and I'm not nearly as talkative to the people around me as I used to be. But I just put that down as another phase in this thing I'm going through. It's just something to get over and it will get better in time.
