the dead can be something very scary as we still don't know why it happens and things that can't be explained can be quite scary.

i haven't seen the logan paul video everyone seems to know about, but i get why it would freak you out (i assume the video had something to do with dead people). a reaction like that is completely natural and i'd probably be paranoid and afraid too if my uncle recently died.

i'd say try to distract yourself with funny videos and friendly conversations with friends, but maybe even talking about it might help you so maybe you can find out what works best for you. in the end, i have found out that time is key here and that things like this go away over time.
maybe taking care of yourself might help you too, like taking a hot bath or a hot shower and just try to relax a bit (which i know is easier said than done especially in a situation like yours, but it's worth trying).
there's a lot of coping methods for anxiety but what i can 100% recommend are breathing techniques, as anxiety and breathing are basically tied together, breathing techniques help slow your breathing down and thus slow down your heart rate which fastens with anxiety. i found breathing exercise gifs on the internet quite useful in anxious times.

whatever you choose to do in the end, my pm's and vm's are always open so feel free to message me if you think you need to talk about this further (or if you just need someone to talk to).

feel free to PM or VM me if you need someone to talk to, i always have a listening ear and i never judge anyone.

I think it can be quite common to have a fear of death and dead people. As it's been said, it's partly because of the unknown and the possibility of what might or might not happen after death- it's the same fear and curiosity that often makes stories and movies of death related things interesting to some.

I also think that it's natural to be more worried about death if a loved one has died, more so if the funeral was open casket. Many people have said that loved ones don't look the same, and it can be upsetting to some.

I've not seen the logan paul video but have heard many things about it. I think that given how anxious you have been with dead people in general, it's understandable that the video may have triggered more worries for you.

I agree with the above response that maybe trying to find some distractions can help. But it's also good to talk to others about what you fear. Sometimes it can help when others reassure us or when we can laugh at the things we fear. Alternatively, you may want to try talking to a counsellor. They can be helpful when exploring fears and learning how to manage our anxieties.
