Customer Question

I've recently watched a video where it shows people having accident happening all of a sudden and unexpectedly , like a lady with her child in a Oran in front of her house and something falls from the house on top of her !
Then it happens that I also read a lot of news and mainly come across of murders or accidents like someone walking in plain daylight and a car drives into them .... by accident... this started to make me feel really fearful and depressed , it's making me think why bother looking after myself, go gym and eat healthy when within a split second I could be dead... by accident , within a split second I could lose me family because of some freak accident ?
And I hear answer such as "oh you're developing a phobia, you're anxious etc" ok fair enough ! But it doesn't take away the fact that these freak accidents CAN HAPPEN!!! So how can I leave a happy life when I know at any time something horrific can happen ??

Thank you for that additional information.

That is an excellent question.

Living a happy life even in the face of possible horrible accidents is possible -- billions of people do it every day.

That being said, sometimes it is hard to do this on you own.
So. What should you do?

I would suggest you consult with a health care team experienced in helping people like you who are trying to deal with these fears. Such a team usually consists of a clinical social worker, a psychologist and a psychiatrist.

With talk therapy and medical management you will be able to deal with these very real concerns and live a happy life.

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
