Irrational fear disturbing my mind

Posted , 3 users are following.

For the last 2 years i've been carrying this irrational fear in my mind that im going to forget how to move, talk or think. And even though i know this is an irrational fear and it makes no sense to think that it's going to happen i still feel scared by the thought of that happening. I feel more relaxed when im surrounded by family or friends, because i know they're going to help in case something happens to me. But when im out in the street by myself i feel very anxious, especially when im crossing a street and i start thinking that my legs are going to fail me. I know this is a stupid fear, but deep inside me i feel something like that could really happen to me and i don't know why. Any advice would be apreciated, and if someone else has experiences something similar i would love to hear how to overcome this mental obstacle.

      I'm happy to know i'm not the only one who has been through this, because i was starting to think that i was crazy because i never heard of someone else having those thoughts. Thanks for the advice, i'll definitely look out for professional help and if medications are necessary i'll take them. I need to get over this fear so that my social life and my grades in school don't get compromised.

    hi Isaac, you might just be stressed from school. school always gave me panic attacks abd it was a difficult time in my life. i used to get the fear that I wasnt real too. then i get the fear of what happens when dying, and what is the meaning of life in general. i find that finding things that distract, like a hobby have really helped me.
