Since August 2020 I have been suffering from a new fear of dying and people I love dying and leaving me on my own. I don’t know why this has come on because I never really thought about death a lot since I got a bit older and ok with my life and then I got diagnosed with bladder retention and had to be catheterised since January and probably have to deal with this for the rest of my life. It seems to have come on as soon as my mental health got worse due to illnesses. I have real bad panic attacks because of it where I can’t breath and I’ve tried distracting myself with games, music, funny YouTube videos. I just don’t know what else to do. I’ve tried speaking to people about it and people think I’ve looked it up and just attention seeking. Any advice??
