afraid i wont be able to recognize myself

One day I was looking at old pictures of my mom and I was like wow that looks nothing like her now! This triggered my obsession of being afraid I wonít be able to recognize myself as I get older. For years I have constantly checked myself in the mirror to make sure that I look the same and recognize myself. Iím scared one day Iím going to not be able to recognize myself and the person staring at me wonít connect to the person in my head and Iím going to have a psychotic break. When I look at myself I get so anxious and I hate it. What if I donít recognize myself??

anyone have similar thoughts/obsessions?

If you think this is the end, then its not the end
