So tired of this. I've been taking a lot of Ativan lately because my crippling fear of death has gotten really out of control. Reading even tangentially related things gives me a panic attack about dying and then I can barely move from my chair, much the less go to sleep. My regular panic attack techniques don't work for this unfortunately. I don't want to rely on Ativan and sleeping meds, because I already feel bad enough as it is about all the medication I'm on. :( I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips for calming your mind and bringing yourself out of panic attacks, especially when it comes to sleeping. Any help at all is appreciated. Though, before anyone suggests therapy: though I'm not currently in therapy, I have been many times and have tried to work through this, but it's something tough to break. Like, really tough. I just want something to help in the mean time before I find a real, hard fix for this fear.
