i always think im gonna die and cant figure out why. i dont wan tto die my family needs me. This all started back in dec when my father passed away at 52 from a massive stroke. I felt like i was staying stong and keeping all my feelings inside. I started drinking everyday almost not sleeping and one day changed my life i was sitting at my computer and started to feel like something was sitting on my chest. I panicked it scared me and from there i have been in shambles. I Gave my life back over to christ and i currently take klonopin i fell better but the aches and pain and thoughts of death always get to me what can i do

It sounds like you need two things--first, someone professional to talk to and help you figure out what you need in order to feel better. Probably you need a chance to grieve and heal from your father's death, and also some treatment for the trauma of his dying so young. There may be more wounds you need a chance to heal from as well. The second thing I recommend is seeing a psychiatrist who can figure out what medication works best for you. You may need an anti-depressant, which works for anxiety too, while you also do talk therapy with someone. Are these do-able steps for you?

Warmly,

Cynthia
