Everybody goes through this at various stages of their life. It is called Death Anxiety. Everyone copes with it differently.
Also we attach a lot of irrational belief to this and once these beliefs are identified and neutralized, u will be able to deal with these situations better.
Consult a psychiatrist to help you learn coping skills.
As you are a sensitive person, your fear of death might be at all 3 levels. According to one's sensitivity level people react differently to different levels of fear. Very person who makes fun of you might find it hard to face the level 2 or level 1 death fear. Your sensitivity doesn't make you lesser a person. It also is your strength. It gives you an opportunity to understand many things in a deeper way.
Coming to what you are going through, i want you to find out your level of death fear to begin with. Though it's emotionally hard for you to acknowledge the death scenario, see if it's possible to think deeply about the concept of death & what it means to you. Have you considered that the very next moment marks the death of this moment & the next day is the death of this day. We all exist because our ancestors, who did exist yesterday. Your childhood has died to make way for adulthood. All these might seem philosophical to you, when i say it however i am just presenting a line of thought for you to think deeply & analyze.
If your are facing issues generally due to your sensitivity or fears, do not hesitate to consult a professional who shall help you overcome any fear which you might currently find difficult to face, understand or overcome.
