    I feel like this a lot!

    It's very odd and I never used to feel like this, actually I've spent many years denying my mortality and taking life for granted. In more recent months I've started to have odd aches and pains in my chest, being the hypochondriac that I am I have completely avoided the doctor (I am going this Friday even though I don't want too but I woke up this morning with a horrible chest so it's about time...)and the feeling has grown.

    I really do go to bed thinking I won't wake up sometimes, but normally it really hits me when I think deeply into my future and think "I might die before I even get to do that thing". I've almost accepted it as a fact which worries me a bit.

    I have suffered with depression and anxiety for awhile, now a'days I have good days and bad days but this seems to be a recurring thought in my head regardless of how I feel that day. It's slightly worrying.

    On the bright side, I am far more cautious with what I eat and stay away from anything with added/ refined sugar like the plague and workout in order to prevent my early death.
    Ive felt this way for a while, i always think about things that could possibly kil me and the age i could die at. Deep heavy thoughts at 2 in the morning are when i usually think of this. If i ever get stomach ache or chest pains i immediately think 'right, this is it. Im gonna die now' and start making myself upset by my thoughts (not too sure if this is normal) but i see all these adverts on how 1in 2 people will get cancer and all these horrible diseases and because my lifestyle and eating habits aren't so great i constantly worry for my future, like i cant just live my life:/

    I've always had this feeling. Mostly when I think about the future, like when I was 16, I'd think about uni or work and wonder if I'll even live long enough to experience it. Basically when I think of my next stage in life, if it's going to be a new completely different experience I'll get these thoughts. I guess I just like planning what I'm going to do next with life and when there's some uncertainty I start to wonder if it'll even happen or I'll live to see it. Making me feel useless and down for trying with life right now

    This could be sleep paralysis - does it happen as you're waking up, something pressing down on your chest, you find it difficult to move, perhaps even breathe for a short moment - or your dreams are lingering in reality for a short moment as you wake up?

    But if you are suddenly experiencing chest pain, it's actually considered a medical emergency. If it happens again, call NHS Direct and they'll advise whether it's worth you coming in or not for a checkup. If this was happening to me frequently, I'd definitely call my surgery and book an appointment.

    I have no reason to feel like it but I often think I'm going to die young from some disease. It pisses off my partner and family as I do tell them a lot. It doesn't really worry me. I have accepted that I may well die young because, well I don't believe in trying to hide from hard truths. I just do everything that I want to do and don't bother with things that I don't think are of use to me. My passion is helping people, so I focus my time around that. I don't care as much about going clubbing or whatever like a typical young person. When I'm on my death bed I want to be proud of what I've done, not wish I had used my time better. Not saying that socialising is a waste of time, just for me, it's not my priority.

    It's less prominent now but I felt this for a long time. When my depression was really bad I was living moment to moment. There wasn't a future. Then I developed PTSD and the short life wasnt just about suicide but all danger I could be in. Some of it still remains..like switching off all plugs before bed and stuff like that but it's not all the time

    I've been feeling like that too recently, maybe it's too do with the fact we spend a lot of our time deep in thought. I tend to do that, a lot.
    The aches feel heavy and sort of turn into a sickly feeling. Do things to distract the mind, death is inevitable but you don't no when it'll happen and it guess thinking about it will only take away the time for you do to do those things you wanted to do.
    I hope you feel better soon :heart::heart:

    I'm 18 and look forward to death - desperately want to die at the very least in my mid-thirties, hopefully due to something like cancer or liver cirrhosis. Too much of a coward for suicide.

    "I'm Mr Meeseeks, look at me!"
    That's really sad I hope you don't feel like this forever But I know where you're at, not gonna say 'it gets better' cause I don't know but I hope for you it does

    I actually do get this quite a lot :/ I've never been able to tell if I can't see myself getting old because I'm too young or just because I feel it won't happen for me. I would prefer to die fairly young, because not only am I afraid of body and mind problems with age but also you know, Donald Trump, Russia, North Korea, nuclear weapons, World War III, the overdue meteor collision, global warming and the inevitable loss of all houses, precious material possessions and farmland to flooding and other erratic weather, etc. I try not to indulge in realistic suicide plans for hopes for death because I don't want to hurt my family, however I can't deny I see myself living to an old age.
