  • Not at all, I never think of my own demise but of my loved ones, it does not scare me at all, it just makes me sad that when it happens I won't be around to see my loved ones.

  • I'm not scared of death because I know where I'm going, but I'm scared of going too soon if that makes any sense....I don't want to leave my children, my husband, I want to see my grandchildren....I'm not ready to go yet...but I know when it IS time for me to go I will have "the peace that surpasses all understanding"

  • Yes, As much as I believe in heaven and that I am going there. I do have these moments where i second guess myself and say, "what if i missed something and got it all wrong and now im going to hell."

    I guess that is where the faith comes in. And If there is no afterlife then well I guess there is no point in fearing that cuz I wouldn't know any better.

  • I try not to be...... I used to have nightmares and horrible panic about it. But I had an experience about 18 mos ago where I thought I was dying. I lost my hearing temporarily after the paramedic told his partner my pupil was bad and possible stroke.... I briefly worried about my kids and their future but then a warmth and peace came over me. My pain melted away (physical pain) and I was warm, comfortable and OK with whatever happened next.

  • I'm not looking forward to it, at least not at this point in my life, but I'm not scared of it, either.

  • I think what gets me is i sit sometimes, and ponder, wondering how my family is, where ever they are...

    and then i see myself in a coffin and i just scare myself, thinking way too much..
    i believe in Jesus Christ and i know where i am going (at least i hope so)

  • Since nobody has come back and reassured me that ther IS,in fact, a heaven.....I am really not at all happy about dying. I am enjoyng life here on earth a whole lot.
    I don't know why anyone would WANT to die? And I sure don't get that "Rapture" tale either. WOw. Talk about 'wishful thinking' .
