Better live it up, just in case then.

One thing I fear is dying with regret. I'm 36.

Seriously, enjoy the now, don't worry about the next.

Don't believe in it. Simple as that.

What if something bad does happen? It was something you couldn't stop and that means you spent the last care free days you had left worrying and stressing. Not worth it.

Besides, we all have bad feelings like that. That's why we're on an anxiety forum. It's the chemicals in your brain acting up.

I felt like that before my 25th.  I'll be having my 31st in a few weeks...try not to worry!  And hey, if the end were really near you might as well spend your time having as much fun as possible!

I get like that before any big life events....I thought I was going to go blind right before my HS graduation, die before my 21st and again right before college graduation. Now I'm getting married in June and I'm convinced I won't make it or get diagnosed right before.

That is so common.  My daughter even hates to say things like, "When me and my friend go to such and such a place in July" because she always thinks, "Oh no, I may not even be here in July!"
I also had an older friend who swore she'd never make it to 30, around 32 she swore she'd never make 40, then swore she'd never EVER make 50...  she's now almost 60.
My mom said that when she was a teenager and would hear church bells ringing in the distance that she would have a panic attack thinking it was a "sign" that she was going to die in a few days! (she's going to be 79)
Common fear for anxiety sufferers. 
You are messing with your own head there.  :winking0008:

anxiety can totally make you feel like this. that sense of impending doom is extremely common; after all, we spend so much time obsessing over sickness and death that it's pretty hard to have confidence that we're actually going to be just fine! just yesterday i made a thread saying i don't think i'll make it to 22. and once 22 comes, i'll say the same thing about turning 23. and on and on and on. it's a cycle of negative thinking that's very hard to break, but with some practice, i'm sure we can do it.

My HA has been at an all-time high for the past few weeks and I've been reading the archives to try and calm myself down.  There was a member, not sure if she is still active on the board....user name was JLo something.  Anyway, I read something in her post that has stayed with me and been a great comfort to me and maybe it will help you:  "You have anxiety, not ESP."  Just because you believe something will happen doesn't mean it will happen.  It's the anxiety talking and lying to you.  Good luck.
