Anxiety
#1
I have Asperger's Syndrome. My special interest is vampires and the supernatural (my other main interest is compassion for animals and veganism, etc). I believe in vampires and the supernatural very strongly (this is one of my main passions), so please respect my belief. I do not want answers like "vampires don't exist" or "the supernatural isn't real, it is a load of nonsense". If you don't believe but you can still help, okay, but if you can't help other than by saying those sorts of things, please don't answer.
Anyhow, despite my love and passion for vampires and the supernatural, recently I have been having major, severe, chronic anxiety about the vampires attacking me. I also have anxiety about demons possessing me. I desperately want to overcome this so that I can get back to thinking about them and doing things relating to them (e.g. Watching films about vampires and demons, wearing gothic clothing and reading books about them). I want to be able to do these things and still be and feel safe.
Over time, I have acquired various strategies including Holy water, a self defence spray that smells garlicky, mustard seeds (because vampires are said to be obsessive about counting and this could be used as a distraction) and a bottle of herbs that are supposed to repel bad spirits. I get strategies and then doubt that they would work, which is contributing to my anxiety. I am anxious that certain protections such as spiritual protection meditation may not work or may not work as well for me, due to my being Goth and being into the supernatural conflicting energies and possibly making me more prone to attack/possession.
There have been other strategies that I have come up with but have not actually acquired, namely salt (which is said to repel demons, a stake (which I planned on getting for a long time, but then people at my college didn't want me to carry a stake around for this purpose as it could be seen as an illegal weapon, I live in England, by the way).
I meditate. I am having therapy (which I am not feeling any vast improvement from). I have done art as therapy. I have done creative writing (sadly, my anxiety is preventing me from doing creative writing, which is another passion of mine. I am anxious that doing creative writing and reading books may put me at risk/at a greater risk of attack/possession). I have done art therapy. I practise mindfulness and have a new book on mindfulness, although I even have anxiety about mindfulness and the mindfulness book. Breathing exercises don't seem to work very well for me. I used to see a college therapist. I see a mental health specialist. I have seen psychologists and a mental health nurse. I am a bit of a sensory person, but I do not feel that sensory items help significantly enough for me.
I have many books on anxiety, including "Dare" by Barry McDonough, "Overcoming Anxiety for Dummies", "Overcoming Anxiety and Depression the Drug-Free Way", "Beating Anxiety" by Davida Hartman and "The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook" by Edmund J. Bourne (one of my favourites).
Can someone please offer some advice? If you could please, please help me overcome this anxiety, it would be more than greatly appreciated. Thank you so, so, so much.

Why come to a paranormal forum when seeking answers for other issues? Wouldn't a forum with others with your issues be more suitable?
Example: https://www.autismforums.com/
Which does address many issues and even offers some possible dietary suggestions.

This is a forum about the paranormal. My anxieties are about vampires and the supernatural. Why wouldn't I come here for help?

Vampires and the supernatural are not proven to exist yet neurological issues are.

Because we're not qualified to help with anxieties of any kind even anxieties about vampires and the paranormal.
