Yes, but there's a difference between the experience in a psychosis - like schizophrenia - in which people really do believe that others know what they are thinking and feeling; and the experience in SA where you know it's your imagination and anxiety that's causing the feeling, and you know they can't really know what's going on inside your head.

Unfortunately, knowing that it's not really happening doesn't necessarily make the feeling any less disturbing.
