I Have A Paralyzing Fear Of Being Dead.

I dont really know how to explain it but I have an extreme fear of being dead. I dont really have much of a story except that this fear has not allowed me to eat, sleep, I have nasty panic attacks, and i throw up alot. I feel this feeling will never go away.

I'd like to help as best I can. You worry me. I can remember when I was about your age I used to get severe panic attacks so bad that I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Underlying it was the fear of death. I'm 67 years old now and haven't got much time left and yet I don't even think of death. When it comes ,it comes. If you keep worrying about death you'll never learn to live. That what God put you here for. Live your life to the fullest. Enjoy every day like it were the last, not because your afraid but because there so much good you can do, so many simple things to enjoy. And when you do die, your soul will be content to know you did your best. Thank God for all the days He's given you on this earth and the opportunity to learn the many things that can be learned in this awesome Universe, also the pleasure and pain of having the opportunity to bring up children. So MUCH opportunity. I beg you to take my thoughts to heart. Remember, I'm praying for you because I've there and done that.
