I've had high anxiety for the past few months now and recently it got worse. I started to question reality and like my entire life, why didn't I question being alive? I don't have blurred vision symptoms or anything like that but the questioning reality has been driving me crazy.

I've been waking up recently with the disturbing thought of why we don't die in our sleep, why we wake up in the morning. Why there are 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week and is that it?

Like I can't believe I'm alive and how long am I going to be alive? It's really disturbing and is ruining my life.

I think you are more likely to be depressed than undergoing psychotic episodes. Any recent stress in life such as unemployment, bankruptcy, divorce, death in the family, rape, accident, disease, etc.?

Please see a psychiatrist (not to be confused with a psychologist).
