I have been diagnosed by my therapist in having an anxiety disorder along with obsessive thoughts about dying and worrying that something is wrong with me like I have schizophrenia or another mental illness even though I know deep down I don't. I can't even stop worrying but lately my new thing is that I'm worried I'm not going to live past a certian age in my life and that scares me. I can sit there and try to think about my future but I just can't picture living past like the age of 25 or something. I'm in a happy relationship I just, I don't know why I feel like this. I don't want to die, I want to be happy and live a long time. Any advice? Is this normal to feel when you have an anxiety disorder (that is it normal to feel I won't live past a certian age when you have anxiety) Please help. Thanks.
