Afterlife fear « on: March 29, 2017, 01:14:49 pm »
Before I was put on a benzo I had Pure o OCD. My theme was I thought I was dead and in the afterlife. Today while in benzo withdrawal I can’t seem to break through the thoughts that I’m fine. Like I’m totally losing it.
I have Mental illness so it’s kinda hard to help me when I have so much going on.

I think it may be your mental illness combining with the DP/DR that happens in withdrawal! For me it was just creepy things like the feel of plastic grocery bags was all wrong, I was sure they were much thinner and cheaply made and I despised touching them for a long time. Religion and your concept of what an after-life is are probably overwhelming right now.
So, research Depersonalization and Derealization, I hope that will comfort you…
