I'm feeling overwhelmingly terrified, I don't know what to do

I'm being punished or at least my head is convincing me that I am, it's my best friends death anniversary and she is punishing me, she keeps try to control me and show me horrifying images of death because I'm lucky and I shouldn't be, I'm terrified but I don't want to cause a scene, I'm silently screaming right now and I feel exhausted

When I'm in mental distress I use the senses technique to ground myself. Look around and name 5 things you can see, if there's people around you name the colours of the shoes they're wearing, what sounds can you hear, what can you smell?
Remember to take deep breaths.
Maybe splash your face with cold water.
Is there anyone you can talk to, or be with that will make you feel safe?
