Are you trapped by your fear of death?
The fear of death phobia is called thanatophobia and is one of the group of anxiety provoking emotional responses that (at one level) we have no choice but to accept, we can try to fight it, however, we will lose in the end, people will pass away and we too will one day expire. Of course, we know this! And that is what makes the cycle of this restrictive and over-whelming anxiety disorder so futile, we are scared of dying and that makes us scared of living, it is a lose-lose situation.
Of all the millions of species of creatures on this planet, humans are the only ones that are innately aware of their fragility (life-span) and are the only ones who have the mental capacity to think about what may or may not happen during their life and after death. Perhaps ignorance would be bliss? Or, perhaps, knowledge is power – if it used in the right way, to motivate rather than to incarcerate.
The anxious thoughts about death and dying, tend to take 3 main forms:
- A fear of your own death
- A fear of the loss of a loved one
- A fear of dead things and a repulsion of corpses (necrophobia usually can be traced to a past traumatic event)
Of course, the individual unknowingly blows everything up into a huge drama, through fear of having an anxiety or panic attack and knowingly (or unknowingly) they feel that they have to control everything and everybody to make sure they are kept safe! However, safe is a very subjective statement and needs to be looked at with context in mind, safe but trapped, safe but miserable, safe but scared, safe but anxious, safe but lonely……….
Anxiety symptoms from a fear of death phobia
If you are experiencing a fear of death or dying then it is likely you will face some of the following challenges:
- A generalized anxiety that follows you all through the day
- A mind that won’t stop worrying about all the things that could go wrong
- Irrational fears about the health of your loved ones
- Trouble concentrating and focusing your attention
- Perhaps the need to stay away from ill people
- Perhaps worrying about any aches and pains in your body
- Difficulty maintaining relationships
- Discomfort visiting hospitals
- Discomfort attending funerals
- Constantly looking at the past as evidence of what might happen in the future
Feelings and emotions brought on by this morbid phobia can be quite overpowering and crippling, often disrupting the persons ability to work effectively. When anxious episodes fire off it can be hard to reign your emotions back in and regardless of how others try to reassure you, their advice often falls on deaf ears because once the fear of death panic attack begins the fear seems so real.
The result of all this worry and avoidance behaviour leaves you feeling absolutely exhausted (mentally and physically) and it is hard to not fall into a destructive cycle of procrastination and depression at a life trapped rather than lived.
