ok, i know im crazy, so you don't have to tell me......

is it normal, or does anyone else, ever lose sleep over fear of dying, or what happens when you die? or just freak yourself out over stuff like the whole 2012 stuff, or a comet or astroid kitting the earth and we all exploding?
im not trying to be weird, but i think sometimes i might be going crazy. i've had this problem since i was younger, and a few times recently. i just over think and can't stop. i don't know. am i alone?

  • Not alone. I am soo afraid of death. Ever since I had a dream about my mom dying when I was 6. When she died when I was 14 it got worse. I can't even sleep without a night light.

  • I just hope if there is a catastrophic event that my family is together and we go fast. I don't want to end up like the book “The Road" Freaky!! I don't think your alone.

  • yes i kniow what you mean...in the past ive got like that but it never lasted more then a night here and there.
    now there really is something wrong with me health wise but instead of freaking out about I try to just think whatever happens , happens
    theres only so much you can do... anyways try to think of someething else or watch a comedy

  • You aren't alone, I know about that fear and I think it's because my Grandfather died when I was 7 years old and I didn't fully understand it then. I don't really recall a lot about it either. I'm afraid of death too, and this is the first time I have really admitted it. How do you really get over this?
