  • Don't worry honey, you are not alone. Many people fear death. I sometimes have mini-panic attacks when thinking about death. I'm not afraid so much of what is going to happen to me, I'm more afraid of what will become of my children without me. I think once they are grown and able to take care of themselves I will feel more at ease with death.

    No one really knows what happens after death, and that is what makes it so frightening. What do you believe will happen? If you believe you will go to heaven, than during those panic attacks try to focus on the picture of heaven. As an atheist I don't believe in god or heaven/hell, but I do believe that our energy is released from our bodies, and is able to freely roam the universe. I don't know if I will continue to think as I think now, but it doesn't really matter. Just the thought of that freedom is enough to put me at ease.

  • Yes, read the bible. There are some really great comforting verses that help me whenever I get anxious or worried about anything. Phillippians 4:6-7 Especially 4:7 And the peace of God, which PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. and on this fear you have: Psalm 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what can flesh do unto me. God doesn't want you to worry about ANYTHING. If you have worries he wants you to give them to him(he WANTS your worries) just really pray and meditate on that and trust the Lord he will relieve you of your worries.

  • do you think you might have a panic disorder.

    death is something you really have no control over and if you spend allot of time focused on it, you'll miss out on your life.

    if you are really struggling with panic over this issue, i'd talk to your doctor and see if they can help you with the panic.

  • If you have faith then there's no reason to fear dying. Why be scared of goin to HEAVEN. Maybe you are just scared to leave everyone and thing else behind.

  • Dying is scary, but don't allow yourself to focus on something so much that it interrupts your day or changes your mood negativly. Talk to someone in your family about it.

  • Death is just a transformation. Nothing to be afraid of. You are alive right now! So why waste your life worrying about dying?!?!!? What does your religion say about dying? Maybe you can find some solace (sp?)   there.
