[I'm trying not to freak out and have another panic attack (or whatever they are), but I can't stop the thoughts. I've tried listening to music, writing, reading, cleaning, playing video games, and everything else I could think of, but nothing works. BTW, necrophobia is an intense fear of death (and/or dead bodies, but mostly it's death in my case). Even when I'm doing okay, I can accidentally give myself a panic attack if I dwell on the reality of death for too long. I've considered all the theories and facts of what happens when we die, and none of them comforts me in the least. For a long time I tried being religious anyway, but when no faith comforts you or makes complete sense, why struggle to believe it? I can't control my thoughts about death anymore. For a few months, I could push them out of my mind, but now I feel overwhelmed even during the day. I think it’s because I've been under a lot of stress lately. My life has pretty much fallen apart over the past month. Whenever I start to think that I might end up okay anyway, something else comes along to knock me down. There used to be a website forum for people with necrophobia, but it seems to be gone now. It's really a shame, because it helped me a lot over the years when I had the attacks. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to deal with intrusive thoughts?
