Causes And Ways To Overcome The Fear Of Death?
Hello doctor … My name is Fitri, I have a problem with myself about 2 months I am very depressed and worried too much. I always feel as if I will die. My mind is very chaotic and I also cannot focus on anything?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically having a feeling of being afraid of death is a very natural thing. However, excessive fear of death that makes you unable to function properly (for example, makes you unable to focus on work or study, makes you shut yourself in a room, makes you not want to hang out with others, etc.) is not normal. First of all, you should explore first, is there a certain event that occurred 2 months ago to trigger the emergence of these feelings? For example, if you experience a traumatic event (for example, you have an accident or almost killed or hurt someone), you see an event that makes you traumatized (for example, see a pretty severe accident), or you just lost someone you care about (for example someone you love unfortunately just died), etc.
Basically if your condition is really disrupting the functions of your daily life, then you should immediately see a psychiatrist to consult your problem further. A psychiatrist can help you find the source of your problem and help you overcome the problem. Therapy can be given in the form of psychotherapy, can also be in the form of medicines.
Some things you can do right now include:
Try to reduce your stress at work or at your school
Try to do relaxation techniques such as doing regular breathing exercises, yoga, or doing meditation to help you be more relaxed
Regular exercise, especially aerobic exercise, can help reduce stress, improve mood, and make you more relaxed
Eat regularly in sufficient quantities
Try to distract yourself by doing fun things, like doing your hobbies, traveling, etc.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
