This is Dr. David

I know what is wrong with you

you are suffering from thanatophobia which is teh fear of death

you need treatment for your anxiety and fear of death

seeing a doctor 7 years ago would not have made a difference in your situation now

you didn't leave feedback for my last question I helped you with.
