Re: why do i feel like im going to die all the time
I get hyperchondria/panic attacks, and I think I feel similar stuff a lot of the time. Sometimes I curl up in Bed at night and feel like Im dying, accept that Im dying, and wonder why on earth Im still alive. I can't describe how dark, unnatural and hollow everything feels at times like that.
Thankfully, it is usually gone the next morning, and it doesn't happen too often. Im having CBT at the moment, so naturally, I feel a lot better. Id recomend you see someone who knows a lot about managing the anxiety/panic attacks/hyperchondria that causes these feelings, like a CBT therapist - it can really help having someone who is there for you. I mean sure, he's there for you because you pay him, (!) but you can take what you will from the lessons - I find them really informative. And it helps having a kindve mentor, - someone who is there, guiding you through the maze on every 7th corner. (or day of the week.)
As your in the UK, you can see a councillor for free by talking to your GP. Sometimes these free councellors aren't too great, but sometimes they are ok. But its free, so id definately set some time aside and try it for a few sessions!
In my experience, medication for depression didn't do ANYTHING. Taking SSRIs was effectively like swallowing a bit of plastic every morning, and I felt even more down due to the fact that I was on anti-depressants. Would definately reccommend the CBT though.
Hope you get better SOON!
