Just for the record, I am in no way extremely depressed, contemplating ***** or anything like that. However since experiencing a near-chronic level of anxiety, in my low periods my brain ends up dwelling on what I like to call the "What does it all mean" feeling. Its like this weird pain that goes through my soul about what exactly the point of life is. My mind thinks about death often during these periods, which particularly happen when I am tired or alone and inactive. By the way I am 24 and feel like in a way i am having a quarter-life crisis! I'm keeping busy, working, playing music (which by the way is the greatest therapy of all!), and spending good times with my girlfriend and friends. However, when I'm alone my mind keeps coming back to these thoughts of death and the point existence.
During these times I am trying tactics like distracting myself, reminding myself of funny things, phoning someone, telling myself off, etc etc. It works sometimes and not others. Sometimes I don't know whether I'm actually feeling this or if the anxiety is just playing tricks with my mind.
When it comes down to it I am scared of death. I know I am too young to even worry about this, I am medically very healthy, but this is causing me great trouble. Thoughts?
