Most definately... I have struggled with that issue more times than I care to remember. Currently, I have no solution accept to bite down and carry on. I get a lot of paranoia and if one percent of it ever panned out to be valid, it would be a lot. If there is no concrete foundation for the worries, try to steer past it. I know it is not that simple...far from it but these kind of things can severely impact your work performance and then it turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy...
If you smell smoke, then be wary of fire...but if you see something that "might" catch fire if the situation is "just right"...leave it be. We live in and amongst fire hazards every day and we can't anticipate fire around every corner...it is the same with one's paranoia...

Im 21 and I had a job since i was 18 until i was 20. Because my depression symptoms got quite bad I didnt turn up for work, but my manager called me. At first i dint answer the phone then I did and we talked and i told her that i was depressed (this was the second time at that specific job). They helped me out a bit giving me time off and i poke to people at a BUPA healthcare centre. They didnt really see much problem and I returned to work with a decreased work load. However I was still getting a high workload and really couldnt hack it. I thought as though i was letting myself and the people at my worplace down and as though they would laugh at me for being so depressed about 'nothing' as i didnt feel as though i could talk to them. I also felt i would never be given responsibility that drove me at work and I decided to quit as i viewed things wouldnt be the same, it was time to move on. It was the worst thing i had ever done. 1 year and 2-3 months later i still have no ob and i am in the worst situation of my life.
So firstly i would say talk to people at work about it, if you havent already. If they dont understand etc. and you feel like you need time off then go to the doctors and get some sick leave.
My main piece of advice though is TALK.
They may understand they may not, but dont just quit like I did, I thought i'd just walk into another job. Now i find it hard to explain to employers why I quit the job in the first place so I struggle.
Hope this helps.
