    I have had those fears and yes it is scary even when you hear about people dying in there sleep that really scares me. Death does scare me but we just have to put it in Gods hands you can not worry about this or it will cause more anxieties 

    I even get scared of the dark because i just want to have some light where i can see at night

    Yes it used to be much worse for me to the point I was giving myself insomnia. Now I still have "episodes" but I talk myself through them. I usually just think of things to calm me or sip some Yogi brand relaxation tea & try watching a funny movie or something that helps ease my mind before I lay down. I just experienced it a few nights back so i talked on the phone with somebody I'm close with,prayed, then watched a comedy & it really did help! Sometimes me & a family member talk about me spazzing out & joke about it...I know its not funny but when you can look on the brighter side it can definitely help you cope. Try not to worry yourself ...YOUR STILL HERE,I'm here , & this sh*tty anxiety is here but whatever life goes on lol Hope you can relax tonight smile

    Hm I have thought of this few times. But then, I reassured myself that it was just a stupid thought.

    If we don't have control over something better submit that to God rather than being harsh on ourself.

    Take care smile

    I have a terrible fear of not waking up. Some nights are better than others. I have been prescribed pills, but I'm afraid to take them because I don't want to go to sleep
