Is it triggered by any symptoms or situations? If it's medical anxiety, then it often has a background where someone close to you has been ill (or passed away). Now you are hypersensitive to these fluctuations and exaggerate the association.
I assume you are on medication. If the surgery is sometime in the future, could you see your GP to help stabilise your condition?
I am mentally ill and my mum is ill she is going to have an operation soon. Perhaps that's why the idea keeps popping up, IDK.
Try to remember that the reason you are having these thoughts is anxiety and not based on anything real. You could die- anybody could- but the chances are slim and there certinally isn't any need to worry about it. When you get the thoughts just tell yourself you are fine and the anxiety is doing it then try to do something else if you can and not dwell on it.
I know it's tough but you can do it. Also, good luck to your mother with her illness and operation. I hope it all goes well and that she recovers soon
Do you suffer from any kind of anxiety? These thoughts are sadly common if you suffer from anxiety disorders or indeed, any mental disorder.
