The thing is, when you are losing perspective, you can't really tell, because everything is still in keeping with your new perspective.

As in "I'm not paranoid now, this time they really are out to get me"

I have had some experience of losing perspective, and always it seemed correct at the time, only long afterwards did I realise how distorted it was.

I can only suggest staying in regular contact with people you trust, and making it a habit to count their perspective on your behaviour as more reliable than your own, as well as taking a loss of that habit as a significant enough development to make seeking help fairly urgent.
