Can someone help me not be paranoid about email addresses?

At the moment I really want/need to make a new email address ASAP for several reasons.
<div><span>My problem is I feel paranoid feeling that everything is watched and so I'm afraid to give my personal details to sign up for a new email address or anything so I feel stuck. I feel paranoid about so many things that I'm feeling trapped and worn out so I was looking for help from someone on these forums as a last resort.
<span>I just don't feel comfortable or like I know what I'm doing. I hear about things like the government is watching whoever that might be and like you need to read privacy policies and all that and I worry what the big deal is and so I remain in my box feeling paranoid to let out anything feeling scared that I can't or I'll be hunted in the future. I do try to read the policies but I still don't feel I understand them when I do and feel still left in the dark.
<span>I've been thinking about making several each for a separate purpose because I fear for my privacy but I feel stuck like I can't figure out exactly how I should do that and if that is what I should do or if that will help.
<span>Another thing is I'm afraid to trust the big names like Yahoo or Google because everyone knows them and they always require me to add personal info and to accept their policies as to what they do with it or whatever so I fear there's a catch and like its not private but I don't know. I guess I'm afraid pizza will become illegal (just using that as an analogy) and if I communicate via email then I could be being watched and it just bothers me so much that I feel froze to sign up for one but should I be?
<span>P.S. I was wondering if I deleted emails and/or the account, would it be permanently deleted or does it not ever go away or what really happens if I deleted my emails I didn't want on there. Also I was wondering if there was a way to save my emails to a document somehow.
