Constantly worrying about family members dying

Hi everyone,

Does anyone else have nagging feelings about something awful happening to their family?

I am going on a study abroad trip on Monday and I can't help but worry it is the last time I will see my mom.

Last Christmas I had a thought come to me that is was her last Christmas. I don't know where it came from, but it has stuck with me and now that I know I won't be home until after Christmas I can't help but shake the impending doom feeling of her death.

Has anyone else has similar thoughts, that did or didn't come true? I really hope I am just crazy.

I hate anxiety. I can't tell if its anxiety or a genuine feeling. It feels genuine of course but I have a hard time convincing myself it is anxiety.

I looked up premonitions online and it talks all about people who can feel things like this. I dont' want it to be me!!!

Re: Constantly worrying about family members dying

Hey Fiona, I always do! It's horrible. I keep thinking how bad it would be if my mum o'r dad would die. My mum told me she had an appointment for a mamogram a few months ago and I just started crying my eyes out, althoug it was just a routine check I felt terrified.
