Feeling of Impending Doom/Death Anxiety

MaryR94 profile image

Hey y'all. For the past couple of months or so, I've had this intense fear that I'm going to randomly die. It's starting to completely take over my life and I am horrified of it happening. I'm scared that some higher power or something is telling me that it's about to happen. My mother passed away 4 years ago in her sleep at 49, so I'm wondering if that may have something to do with it, as well. Has anyone else had this happen before?

Thanks so much.

Yes, I've been dealing with the same thing..honestly, the only thing that has helped me is coming to terms with that higher power you speak of... God in my case. I had to surrender my desire to control everything, even my own death, to him...it's still a daily struggle and I have to continually turn things over to him and trust that He has my ultimate good in mind, that He has a plan for my life and that He is completely in control of everything and I have nothing to fear... But daily I do pray and ask him to help me do just that.

I've been trying very hard to have that same connection with God. I'm just afraid of dying before truly living.
