Question I Need Help, I Am Going Crazy!!

Hello everyone....I feel like I am going crazy.

I have had this terrible feeling since February 2004 that I am about to die.

This came after a few months of constant everyday stress and worry.

In November 2003, I thought I might have came in contact with HIV and that totally had me scared. That was on my mind everyday for months.

In January 2004, my Grandfather passed away, and I basically watched this since December 2003...he died very slowly...I was with him in the hospital for 3 days and then he went home and the next day he died. I was at his house when he died and everybody went crazy...it was a very devastating moment.

Then from then on, all everybody talked about for a month was death, and everyone was very depressed and very sad.

Then on Valentines Day this year, I got the feeling that I was about to die, and have had it ever since...not as bad...but sometimes it comes and goes.

I think crazy things and if I see something bad, I think it is going to happen to me...and I really question my religious beliefs now, which I never used to.

I just feel like I am going crazy and that I am never going to get better.
I was on Paxil Cr 25mg for awhile...but it didnt really help.

Could this be Post Traumatic Stress?
What can I do to get rid of this?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated...Thank You and God Bless!!

Re: I Need Help, I Am Going Crazy!!

Hi. Did you talk to a therapist or doctor? It may be PTSD or OCD or hyphochondriac or whatever other diagnosis they may put it under. It's important to work through it though. What religion are you if I may ask?
As for me, I used to believe I would die at a young age-- that God wanted me here to hurt for awhile but wouldn't let me live with this unbearable pain too long. I don't think any of use know when we're going to die and that's really unnerving (at least, I think so). My therapist and I are plugging away on my anxiety. It's hard though. Death is a scary one.
