nothing is wrong with her.
she's been in hospital alot of times though.
she smokes too.

but her health is fine.
but i have anxiety, and everyday i develop a new fear, or a new worry.
and i always worry about my mum dying. i never want it to happen.
i never want to go through it, and i know i'm going to have to one day.
and i know it's going to be a long time away, cause i'm only 17 and she's almost 50.
but the thought of it frightens me so much, that sometimes i start crying, and can't breathe.
does anyone know how i can get over this fear? ):

Hi girl,

I am Merissa, an online counselor. I think you are having an anxiety problem which may be causing your panic attacks (episodes of breathing difficulty).

Do you often or regularly think of bad things happening to or around you? If yes, you may even be suffering from an OCD that has to do with consistent negative thinking and imagination. This can explain for your constant fear of your mum dying when she is not.

The root of the problem may be some past experiences/traumas that may cause you to have issues with people dying, people leaving you or a loss of control.

Do you have the fear of loneliness and helplessness? Do you always have the worry that you will have no one to turn to when things turn bad? Are you afraid of losing control of yourself and the things around?

I want you to know that you are not alone in this. Do not worry or be scared. Why not you contact me and I can follow through with you? I am a online counselor and we provide free online counseling for people in need.

You sound like me. Death and sickness is all around me but not in my family yet and that makes me think that It will happen to my family next. I don't know how to stop this thoughts. I am a happy person before I got this and I want this out of my life. Sad
