I am a 23 year old female. I am in a serious relationship with a wonderful man, and will graduate from college in May. Overall, I am happy with my life right now. However, I worry all the time. I worry that my mother will get into a car accident, and then i imagine all the details following the moment I find out that she is hurt. I love my mother very very much, but I cannot help but to imagine these horrific things, and I think there is even a part of me that wishes it would come true. This doesn't just happen with my mother, I imagine my car being t-boned by a semi truck, or me hitting a tree. I imagine all sorts of terrible things. I don't really want these to happen, but there is a part of me that wants them to. I seem to play out events in my head. Please help me. I do not know if this is an actual psychological disorder and i should get help for it. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.

I have not found any mental illnesses where this is the only symptom- and Ive researched lots.
