I have an overwhelming feeling that I'm going to die tomorrow.

I have no prior health complaints but have been going through an awful emotional time lately. I just have an overwhelming feeling that tomorrow is the day I will die.

I always had a feeling that another date was somehow significant to me. I thought it for years and was always somewhat wary of that date. And on that date this year my marriage broke down. The significance of the date didn't even occur to me until a month or so after.

I'm not normally superstitious or like this at all. But I'm freaking myself out about tomorrow now. All week I've been thinking something is going to happen on Saturday and now that it's just one day away I think it might be my own death.

I know I sound crazy. Like I say, I don't normally have thoughts or feelings like this. It's very odd and unsettling. Has anyone else experienced something like this and, most importantly, lived to come here and post about it?

I stopped riding my bike last year because I had a really strong feeling one day: 'the next time you ride that bike you'll die'.

DP keeps bitching at me to get back on it because it cost just under a grand, but nope <grim reaper emoji>

You're not going to die, I promise.

i have.
it can be stress or anxiety.
given you mention your emotional problems id have to say it's that rather than a premonition.
it'll be fine thanks

I once had a really, really bad feeling about going on a particular ride. Nothing bad happened. You'll be fine OP, it's just a thought gotten out of control.

Download the headspace app and do one of the ten minutes if the worrying gets bad.

Also, OP you'd better update us on Sunday grin

I had a really bad feeling about a ride once. After queuing for an hour when I got to the front of the queue I got on and walked straight off the other side. The ride broke down half way round and everyone was stuck on it for 20 minutes.
Am sure you will be fine tomorrow though OP. Can you spend the day with people that will be kind to you?

I can't go on a particular colour of rollercoaster because I swear I'll die if i do. Big or small Dora's to matter- just the colour.

I had this feeling yesterday. I got on the wrong bus on the way home from work. A big double decker and the route it takes is very hilly. But I am here alive and well. I also used to think that I would be dead by the age of nineteen, a feeling brought on by walking past a gravestone every day that had my first name on and the age she had died was nineteen. Still here many years later.
So it is much more likely that it is anxiety you are feeling and not anything to do with dying.
I'm really sure that you will be fine.

Ok, this is good. Logic! Of course it's anxiety. It's so blindingly obvious but I couldn't see that when I first posted. At least I couldn't see that it was anxiety causing me to feel this rather than this feeling causing me anxiety.

I have the headspace app but haven't got around to using it yet. Today might be a good day to start!

I actually get it. There is a light switch in my house when every time I press it, I get a vision of an explosion, like a premonition. It's random and not possible but it happens every time.

I agree that it's the anxiety causing the "premonition", not the other way around. I went through a very anxious period a few years ago and I had this horrible feeling that something terrible was about to happen. I couldn't understand why no one else was worried. The anxiety passed after a month of two, the feeling went, and nothing terrible ever happened. Take care of yourself OP, the headspace app is a great place to start flowers
