I have been where you are and there are times yet when I get tossed back into those same feelings of doom and "what if?" thinking. Anxiety can cause persistent and uncontrolable nervousness, stess, and worry that is triggered by anticipation of future events, memories of past events or ruminations over day-to-day events both trivial and major.
Like you when I have these intense feelings it intrupts my daily life.
My therapist helped me understand while we are worrying about dying, we are not living.
