death anxiety...

Posted , 9 users are following.

I am suffering terribly with thoughts about death. I feel so confused by it all. I keep thinking how I'm nearing 30 and that If I'm lucky enough to live to my 60s I'be already had half my life.

I get so scared by death. I constantly think iM dying. I've had thoughts of death ever since I was very young. Always so confused by it all.

I know I can't stop it happening I just wish there was a way to live my life anxiety free

    Yes exercises and a change in lifestyle, is what is needed, and by the way I read in the paper recently, If you are 40 now you have another 45 to go, so, I wouldn't listen to what anxiety tells you. 

    It is also a fact that anxiety, is a liying, full of crap, a** hole, and the next time its giving you thoughts, laugh at them.

    I have been suffering from health anxiety for about a year and a half after a major panic attack. I t is tuff to deal with on a day to day basis but it does work sometimes to just tell it to F off. Every time I get chest pain I think I have a heart problem even though i have had multiOn my way! tests telling me I dont. But when I get chest pains in the back of my mind there is still that Voice that wants to tell me there is something wrong. You just can't live in fear or it will consume you. Good luck be strog

    Glad to see I'm not alone everything you wrote is as if I wrote it myself. I've been afraid of the same thing ever since I was a little girl too and it's taken over my life

    I had this too! It was bad, constantly thinking about death, not enough time, etc. I was prescibed Prozac and can say that the fear is gone! I thought I would never stop worrying about it...

    I have had this and it's awful but I learned that it is a sign of insecurity. I managed to get through it by thinking what we cannot change, we cannot be in control of. Can you try thinking about the things you can change? X
