I have two babies and all of the sudden I am experiencing a terrible fear of dying. And not only that, but I am very sad that I gave life to these two babies and that one day they will die. I am just so depressed over this issue and nothing can get me out of it. I can't accept that this is it and that I will not live forever with my husband and children. Why did God gave us life if he will take it back? I don't even care about life, I just can't bear the thought that one day I will stop seeing my children. I went to counseling and read books but nothing seems to comfort me. Not even my pastor. How do I get through this?

  • Take a deep breath, hold it for a sec, now let it out. Repeat a few more times. Sounds kinda like anxiety attacks to me. Maybe you should try yoga and/or meditation. Worrying all the time, isn't doing anyone any good, especially not you. I would talk with you doctor about this, maybe he can help you.

  • I go through that now, too......and it doesn't go babies are 12, 9, and 6, and I think about it almost every day......I know mine is part of my depression...could you possibly be suffering from that, too? Talk to your doctor...

  • I started having weird thoughts about death and dying, and it turned out to be a part of my issues with depression and anxiety. I have been having anxiety attacks since my first DD was born, and now I'm on meds to control it and I feel like a different person. Maybe you should talk to your doc?
