I’ve suddenly been having intrusive thoughts of hurting myself and they scare me so much. I haven’t had much sleep this whole month and I read that sleep deprivation can cause that too. This is causing me so much distress ever since my panic attacks started. I’ve never in my life felt this way before. I want to cry and scream because I want these thoughts to just go away. I would never act up on them because I’m terrified of death or suicide. Every time I hear of someone passing, my body just goes numb and I start to panic. I’m super terrified. Why am I feeling like this? These thoughts come and go and sometimes they stay to haunt me. I’m so scared. Please help! Any advise?

I think everyone gets random thoughts like that from just out-of-the-blue.
You have no intention of acting on them. None.

Idk why you afraid of death. A lot of ppl are.
I'm so sorry you stuck on worry. You are not alone.

Thank you so much for getting back to me. I feel this happens when I’m waking up. I don’t know if I’ve made myself believe this but I feel it’s every day now and it’s right when I wake up to like 3pm and then I start to feel much better. It’s a dread.😕

It's odd. Talk to your mental health doctor,
Best luck!

You really need to get some sleep being tired as well as everything else is not good.

Thank you! I was prescribed Trazadone to sleep since I’ve been having insomnia. I forgot to take it tonight since I fell asleep and I woke up so scared and anxious.😭
