I'm so sorry you're feeling like this. I too worry constantly about dying and about what happens when we die. But I once watched a video about a man who planned a sky dive and he panicked and worried for days right up until he jumped out of the plane and when he did it he realised he had spent so much time worrying and panicking when actually there was no need to waste that energy days before as it wasn't happening. Worry about those things when it's staring you in the face..not days or years before it happens. I know it's hard as it inevitable but life is short and precious, try not to think about death..And think about one thing per day you can do because you are alive. Be grateful for one thing everyday you get to achieve because you're alive.. Does that help? X

I’ve had this worry, it consumed my thoughts for a couple weeks straight. I

Cried, which is healthy because death is very sad. It took really facing it and mourning it, then I could accept it more. I still struggle sometimes but it has brought me to a deeper spiritual place too. I did have to start taking Lexapro because I sunk into a depression. I am doing better now.

I’m starting to enjoy life again and I thought there was no way I would again.

I watch videos by Douglas Bloch to help me as well, he has a YouTube channel on depression

Yeah I’ve watched some of his videos but get this problem where I have this foggy haze in my mind like I’m not real it’s weird and eating food or going out or doing hobbies aren’t enjoyable at all nothing I do is. Is this the depression or something else?

Sounds like depression, are you on any medications?

Well depression can last months not treated, medication can work. It’s working for me
