Fear of Dying
Another rough night last night. I was falling asleep on the couch, so I thought, “Perfect, I will go to bed and pass right out”. Didn’t happen. Anxiety took over and that was it. I closed my eyes and immediately went into panic mode. What if I don’t wake up? Who would find me? What would happen to Jim and the boys, the house? Would it hurt? Every thought rushing through me. Thoughts of so many friends of ours, passing so young, under 50. I tried soothing music and lavender oil, no luck. I prayed for calm. I went back downstairs and watched TV, that finally switched the anxiety off. I know so many that deal with racing minds at night, the loss of sleep. What thoughts keep you up? How do you cope?
