    At least once a day when i have moments to myself i start daydreaming and then for some reason i have scenarios like actual photos and videos in my head that my mind has created of my future. The other day on my commute to college i was imagining myself driving a car and i started getting anxiety. Im scared of growing up and scared of the outcome of my future. Its not necessarily the fact that ill be poor its just that i have no control of it and no matter what i do will not determine it. I'd rather die at 65 rather than live long because im that type of person who does not want be looked after or especially be put in a nursing home.

    Can someone help me? ive researched a bit and it comes out as chronophobia but im not entirely sure its what i have.

    How can i stop this? Sometimes i would get anxious for a long period of time and it makes the events in my heads seem more surreal.

    Sounds like you may benefit from some counselling or therapy to help you explore these thoughts and why they exist/ bother you. You can talk to your school or GP about accessing that or google to see if there are any self referral services in your area.
