fear of getting old

by Sarah

I am 18 years old and I believe I have a fear of getting old. I do not hold back on doing things because of my fear but ever since I can remember I would have episodes of panic about getting old.

And when I say old I mean like 25, 30, or 40. It usually occurs when I am trying to fall asleep.

I get shortness of breath, my heart starts pounding and I get horrible anxiety. I hope something can help me.
