Does anyone suffer from Thanatophobia?

Hi, I suffer from Thanatophobia (the fear of death/dying) and sometimes when I think to hard about it I'll get panic attacks, and one of them recently caused me to start suffering from depersonaliztion. I don't feel like anything is real anymore and my sense of physical touch is all wonky. I also am starting to feel like I'm only alive when I'm dreaming and I was just wondering if anyone had similar things going on. Thanks

For me I used to think about death and get terrified. Then I got anxiety and dp and worrying about that stuff sorta replaced fear of death. Interesting to hear some people get these thoughts after dpdr develops. Either way they are def related in some way.
