Not to worry: Worry doesn't help but getting to the root of why your thoughts drift to death can, e.g., loss of a loved one, fear of death, lack of control, etc. A clinical psychologist can help. Check w/your doc to rule out physical causes.

For what length of time can you be dead and come back to life from stroke?

Dead?: If by dead you mean no cardiac activity, you can sometimes be successfully resuscitated, but without adequate cpr, brain damage will start after 4 minutes. If by dead, you mean in an unresponsive state or coma, but circulation and respiration has been maintained, recovery can occur after months.

Call/be with someone: Should be with someone u trust. And if u can't find someone to be with call them. If u don't want to talk to anyone u know, call the suicide crises hotline. They will talk u for hours and provide great support. Remember u ALWAYS have other choices.
