Anxiety Disorders/Anxiety


Hello. I'm 20 year old male. From my childhood I have always been scared of the future. For ex, some childhood friend told me that all life on Earth was going to die in 2010 and I became scared stopped enjoying life. I know that it was illogical but I couldn't stop being scared. Now I simply fear that my parents are going to die without any reason even though they are perfectly healthy and that makes me feel afraid of future all the time.
