Xmartz Posted July 6, 2015 Share Posted July 6, 2015 I was wondering if anyone went through a period where they were actually afraid to fall asleep for fear that they wouldn't awake? And, if so, what helped? Between my SAH and the following blood clot in my lungs I have a huge fear of dying. Actually more afraid for my children than for myself. It has affected my sleep and I just cut a long weekend at the beach short because of it.I had a few heart palpitations last night so I became anxious and of course started having more.then I started thinking about how I didn't want to get put in a hospital so far away from home, how I didn't want to die there because my kids would never go to the beach again, etc... My thoughts just spiral out of control! By this morning I had talked myself into going home. Of course, I have only been out of the hospital for about 5 or 6 weeks, but I'm wondering if any of you had this issue, and if you had any suggestions to help?I do have an appointment with my therapist coming up and will talk with her about it as well!Thank you !Mandie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
