    Be careful using alcohol better to see your gp and gets something that can help calm down the ocd thoughts and then the anxiety will calm down aswell. Not to sound preachy but maybe bring faith into your life. Maybe it will help you have less fear of the afterlife. You were there before you were born so i hardly believe its scary after. There are millions of stories about people dieing and coming back as well. I think its harder and scarier to be alive and anxiety ridden cause its robbing your life.

    Hi i suffered with depression for many years and i suffered with panic attacks when i went outside.

    i can tell you that it will improve with time and i think everyone as a fear of dying but try to tell your self its a natural part of life.

    I believe that part of us lives on in our children as they are apart of us and i hope that you find the strength to get through your fear and be happy again

    Absolutely the doctors can and will help you. You deserve a more comfortable life and drinking is a terrible idea in many levels.

    Hi Katie, 

    It doesn't sound stupid. It seems a very logical fear to me. But if you are getting to the point where you have to drink every night in order to get to sleep you need to seek medical help hun.

    Tell them about your panic attacks (and what they are about) and see what they suggest. If they do suggest medication it may be an idea to try it. Better that than starting a slippery slope into alcoholism. (I don't mean to sound melodramatic, but it's very easy to do if it becomes a coping strategy). 

    Take care.
