    They Want Me Dead

    I was in a Futurama type world, and my best friend and I were touring our newest home. We went to go find my family, but were stopped by 2 vampires. (Imagine the look of that ,oldy guy from Ghost Rider 2 wearing a black robe) It was like for a second I could see in a 3rd person...

    Terrified of Dying

    I have always been afraid of dying.  Not sure all the reasons why.  I know one of the reason is I have a fear that I will see my children suffering and I will not be able to hold them and tell them it will all be OK. The fear became stronger after I saw the movie "...

    I get intense feelings

    that turn into anxiety/panic attacks every time I think about dying. And it's over the silliest of things, I could be looking down at my hands and just randomly think "When I die, I won't be able to see anymore.." These overwhelming feelings of panic usually come at night, when...

    When I was 20, I had it in my head

    that 37 was going to be it for me. I didn't, for some reason, think I'd see a day past that monumental birthday. Don't ask me why....I guess the number just appealed to me. Being the invincible youth that I was, it didn't frighten me in the least to think my life was...

    Coward Or Careful?

    My country is now crime ridden and no one seems safe.  I take ordinary precautions against crime and so I am not as yet paranoid. Last year my Brother In Law died suddenly and I again became concerned about my mortality.  The same thing happened when my Dad died. ...

    I Am A Little Bit

    The main thing I worry about is that the physical process of dying sounds EXTREMELY painful. Organ failure, lack of oxygen, and the brain shutting down sound like they will cause quite a bit of discomfort to say the least.

    Coughing up blood & I'm in

    so much pain. All I can do is take these painkillers to stop the pain… I think I'm gone… rolling on the floor… messing up the carpet…

    Everyday I Am Plagued With Terrible Thoughts.

    I'm not a religious person... I don't believe in afterlife, I don't believe in heaven or hell... I simply believe that when you die, that's it. That has always been my belief... but for some reason unknown, I've become very afraid of that thought. I've been trying to imagine what...

    Afraid Of Dying, But Not Of Death.

    That's right. I'm afraid of the process of dying, but I am not afraid of what comes after that. I am afraid to leave my body and go off to where I believe I will go, but I am not afraid to settle in there, and greet the arms of death. I am afraid that I will suffocate, I'm...

    Woke Up From A Bad Dream...

    It's strange that a mental phenomena can cause your physical body so much fatigue. I shouldn't be so tired right now because I've gotten much less sleep before, but I haven't felt this tired in a long time. It's probably the bad dream I had last night. Dreams of dying are the...

    Death.

    I'm afraid of dying before everything I've been through pays off. I have always believed that all I've seen and experienced has molded me into who I am, and all my hard work will pay off. But I'm scared of not making it to a point in life where things are okay. My whole life has...
