Does anyone have Thanatophobia?

I just need to know. This is my 3rd time with this phobia. It's about myself not others dying. It gets to the point we're in am afraid of going to sleep. I take kolonopin 3 mg and am thinking for telling my psychiatrist. I have already talked with my psychotherapist. Please let me know so I don't feel alone.

Yes, I suffer from this as well. I am constantly running to the doctor or calling the doctors office to ask questions about my symptoms. I of course don't believe them when they tell me that I am ok not to worry. I mainly worry about myself, because if I am not here then my five children will suffer. I do worry about my children as well but not as much as myself. I have been doing this for about 33 years now. I must say it is getting pretty tiresome.

This is one of mine too. I fear a long drawn out death. I had to stop saying this like what if there is a car accident and I'm trapped and the car is on fire. I have to tell myself STOP the what ifs. It was ruining my life. Now I refocus and make the effort to think positive things.
