Well as the thread title says, i have Thanatophobia (fear of dying). I have had this for aslong as i can remember, im the only person I know that has this so I have no one else to talk to, relate to, or get support from. Growing up i always had panic attacks, not overly bad ones but bad enough that it was noticable from on lookers. Getting older, it started to get worse. But then I had my 2nd child DD, and things went from ok, to panic attack central. Now apparently this phobia is many things, like certain things about death, with me, its Im scared about myself dying, and its not that freaking out about dying at this instant, its when im like 80years old and its meant to be, but I cant accept it, I dont want to go, its not that I want to live forever, i want to be able to kiss and hug my children and DP forever , knowing that I will go into a nothingness, and never seeing anyone FREAKS me out hardcore. I get so bad, i cry, scream, i cant breathe and just wish this feeling would go away. So im hoping there is someone else out there who is going threw this and can help support me and tell me how you cope with it. Cause Im so scared its going to get worse and worse as my children grow up, and I dont want to be put in mental ward and for my children to not grow up without a mother. Thank you for reading.
