Am i being ridiculous about being worried about death and predictions of world endings?

I panic over the thought of death, and these predictions of the world end this year is making it worse, my panics are more regular and im feeling more uncomfortable each week. I dont know how to control this :(

Here's what I think; 1) We should cherish and make the best of each day we live. It's all we have the power to control. 2) If the world is to end this year it is totally out of our control so there is no point in worrying about it....and 3) If we die, all our problems are gone so there is no more worrying, anxiety, panic, depression or any of this yucky stuff. Yay! Try focusing instead on things you are grateful for in your life. Hope this helps.

I don't think its ridiculous at all.. death is scary.. terrifying. Existential anxiety has existed since... well, existence I guess... My counsellor recommended that I read a book called "Staring at the sun" by Irvin D. Yalom. Its quite good.. I'm about halfway through. Maybe you'll get something out of it too =)

This has been a -seriously- major source of anxiety for me since I was really little. I would get panic attacks about dying at night (I didn't know they were panic attacks at the time, I just called them "the dying feeling") and I would avoid supermarkets because there were always trashy tabloids in the checkout lanes proclaiming the end of the world was coming. It absolutely terrified me and it still makes me super anxious now.

I obsess about it too, but the other way around - I want it to come faster, at least my own death, so that this life is finally over.
