    I have died before. I don't remember anything,

    I can't even remember if everything was just black. I woke up in the hospital after a car accident. I had flat lined in the ER and was dead for a whole 22 seconds. I often wonder what I experienced in those 22 seconds of nonexistence. What did I experience?

    I'm a two time breast cancer survivor.

    Most recent diagnosis in Sept 2013. Though I'm officially in remission, thoughts of death/dying or how much time I have left are always in the back of mind.

    I just got back from the cardiologist,

    I hate going there, I never get good news, I only get confusing or bad news, I had an ECG today, they said that my aortic rout is now around 50 millimeters, and that I'm not allowed to do any more sports, or do anything physical anymore because it will rupture, that's not any...

    Story # 192 I Have Always

    From earliest childhood, I have obsessed about death. I am afraid, not of dying, but of ceasing to be. It sounds like the same thing, but really for me, it isn't. I am not afraid of the process. I don't wonder what will kill me, or how badly I might suffer. I am simply terrified...

    If you could truly die,

    you wouldn't know you are alive right now. Everytime you lose a vessel your conscious force is released back into the source. If your conscious is an ocean and some of you is collected and is separated from you, is that part of you still you? Of course it is still you.. the...

    I'm in a very apathetic state where I hope for an accident to kill me but I'm not ready to kill myself. I think about death because I'm not sure whether I want to live or die. I can't decide. Today I was hoping that I would slip fall and sustain a lethal head injury on the...

    I'm not paranoid and it's not something I would

    be about to let hold me back in life but the thought that one day I will just scese to exist, to just stop breathing, terrifies me! it's sad that this is the only certain in life we will all go through.. it makes sense why people cling to the prospects of afterlife so much.

    after you die? Do you believe in heaven and hell? Reincarnation? Or you simply cease to exist. I'm curious to know each persons unique view on here.

    I Wish I Could Do It

    I wish I could kill myself. Lately I think about it every day. I have some bad habits that won't go away and I feel that nobody really care about me. But I gave myself till next year. Maybe because deep down I'm really scared,does this mean that I don't want to?

    or anything. But isn't it weird how, when you think about what dying is like, you must first become so much more aware of your self and your body?

    death. I've been wondering which way I would die, if my life would flash before my eyes like people who've experienced near death say. I've wondered will I feel my soul leave my body and what would happen next. Would there be darkness? Or will I go to heaven or hell?

    I always think about death.

    It doesn't scare me. I always want to die. I dream about my death either by getting run over, getting shot, by giving birth, or hanging myself. I was close on doing the last one 3 times already. Almost succeed. Almost.
