Psycho with grief.

I feel like I'm losing my mind from grief due to a broken heart. The people I have tried to trust since my break-up have let me down (except for my one true friend and my therapist but they can only help so much and they are kind of like Saints). I'm scared of my paranoia (big business is corrupt and it rules our country without scruples -- today I decided Verilli must have been drugged by the GOP to have so royally flubbed the Health Care oral arguments which may not be insane but if it's true it makes me want to die). What can I do for myself in NYC to not lose my mind and keep growing as a person?

I'm a smart-ish person who was dumped two years ago. I'm employed but the job pays poorly and my co-workers don't include me in lunches or even conversations. So I'm lonely. I notice that I'm increasingly paranoid and feel criticized by everyone. Therapy is helping with these big old self-hate issues. If I wanted to be assessed, I expect a psychiatrist would say I had some type of personality disorder. But I do not want to be assessed. I do not want to see myself that way. I have always been sensitive but this break-up has nearly killed me. I don't know what to do with this grief.
