These are not: good psychological states. Go to a psychologist or psychiatrist. S/he will ask you lots of questions to rule out causes. Things that can cause such feelings? Drug use, side effects of current drugs--particularly SSRI's, mental illnesses--paranoid personality, schiizophrenia, extreme anxiety states, among many others.
