I have really bad anxiety about going crazy, how do I stop and learn to move on?

As long as I can remember I’ve had a crippling fear of going crazy or schizophrenia. I really don’t know why since I have never experienced a hallucination auditory or visually, aside from sometimes seeing something in my paripheral. My anxiety just will not let it go, if I come across a story or reddit thread... show more As long as I can remember I’ve had a crippling fear of going crazy or schizophrenia. I really don’t know why since I have never experienced a hallucination auditory or visually, aside from sometimes seeing something in my paripheral. My anxiety just will not let it go, if I come across a story or reddit thread about it obsess over people’s stories, like, I just keep thinking what if this happens to me? What if I start hearing demons? What if I think I’m from mars? I just find it so terrifying. My mind also grasps to anything I do that’s not normal, like talking to myself, making me think I’m going crazy when I know deep down, I’m probably not. How do I learn to drop this and stop thinking about it? How do I leave this in the past? I’m don’t thinking and obsessing over something so STUPID.
