paranoia and death/ fear, dieing. schizo affective disorder

Hi I have schizo affective disorder and am not taking medication. I have a severely heightened paranoid (fear response) that is going to kill me by slowly suffocating me out of fear. I post this in hopes to find somebody with a similar problem even though it must be extremely rare that this would happen (right time, place, etc.). The fact that they would find this would be a miracle.
