Hi everyone, I'm new to this as from now, I saw it on a website and thought I'd give it a go.
I am seventeen years old and I am terrified of dying in my sleep.
I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety but my medication have not helped with my sleep issues.
It's ruining my life, I'm ill all the time because I'm so tired,I can't pursue a career because I can't physically get out of bed until around 1/2 in the afternoon.
I don't want to feel like this, I want to be a normal teenage girl.
I know it sounds silly but I can sleep through the day as long as it's light out and I know there's people awake in the house and I can also sleep a little bit better when I'm with someone even because I feel safe and I feel that someone will stop me from dying some how even though I know deep down if I'm going to die no one will be able to do anything.
I have no major illness's that can cause me to die in my sleep, I don't know where this fear came from
can anyone help?
