I To Fear Death!!

I can relate to all of your stories. I have had a fear of death since I was 15, mine though only comes every 4 yrs in the fall and winter months. I get so discouraged when I talk about it to family and friends and they tell me they have no fear!! Even talked to my doctor about it and he said "We all die" lot of help he was. I not so much worry about how im gonna die, I worry about what is after death and the not knowing scares the crap out of me. Like one of the stories I read where you get into the why bother with anything when we are all just gonna die and I totally understand.. Can't fathom that what if there is nothing after you die.. and just dont ever exist again..

I'm afraid of dying too, but I'm starting to deal with it. There's pretty compelling evidence for reincarnation at least, and the general time between incarnations is 15 months, so if you don't like whatever heaven entails, you just have to put up with it for 15 months and then you can come back to earth. That's not so bad is it? My prayers are with you my friend.

I can totally relate to everything that you are saying. This is the first time that I am speaking about my fear publicly. I recall first having an anxiety act about dying when I was around 15 or so. I remember going into a deep depression, being scared to sleep, I lot 25 lbs and I was taking to see a shrink that did not help. I'm 32 now and every few years I have what I call episodes. My episodes include months of depression and horrible thoughts. I too have said what is the point of living. I really dont live because the fear of death stops me from living. I have thought about killing myself just to get it over with. I look at life so different than most. I have two kids so I truely live for them. If helps me to know that I am not completely crazy and alone. I feel your pain and what helps me is praying and taking it one day at a time.
