Fear of death

Edited , 7 users are following.

Over the past few weeks all I have been having thoughts of is dying and death. I am in my mid 20s and recently I see people of similar age passing away and it really made me think that could be me.

I have been having counselling for health anxiety but this seems different and I have visions of seeing things wrote like RIP mate on my fbook! I feel like I am going crazy! Does anyone else have these thoughts or am I alone?

I am seeing my doctor next week and also my counsellor ... This seems really crazy and if it was any f my friends I would think they were being silly. However due to me having these thoughts I feel scared of death! ! I've been googling all sorts of cancer and immortality!

Does it pass? Any help would or advice would be great

    Hiya, I'm 20 and I'm having the exact same anxious thoughts- I see all over Facebook people my age passing away, before it would not cross my mind that it could be me but now I'm terrified that it could so easily happen to me. I can't sleep at night cause I'm scared I will die in my sleep (sounds ridiculous I know) but I am getting better, I can sleep better I got kalms natural tablets! I'm going to CBT soon as my cousin also felt the same but she said CBT really really helped her so I'm hoping it will help me as much!
