Is this weird?

Is this strange that a 24 yr old woman is so worried about death? She has her whole life ahead of her and yet every day all she can think about is dieing?

  • No she hasn't but this is what she told me... She believes in god and life after death but she says she cant help but wonder if there really is..... She say she is scared to leave her hubby and be away from all those who she loves.... You know how they say in the bible that u dont remember ur life on earth.... well she says that scares her that she will forget her hubby and son.... what do u think will help her

  • id have to say no, because i remember when i was younger i had panic attacks about dying, it was really just about the fact that i love life so much and living and doing and the wonderful things to see that one day, it will be over, and the fact of death is so permanent, think about it, eternity..... thats a longer time than we can even fathom. the though of our loved ones being here with out us. that its all over

  • I agree, I used to think like that when I was really depressed. It sounds to me like she needs to get some counseling or get involved with a spiritual group in her area, read some spiritual books, listen to some of the great teachers on, etc. I TRY really hard not to suggest medication, but if all else fails, she may want to check into it. But usually things like vitamins and exercise can relieve many depression symptoms. MEDITATION is SOOOO healing!!! She may also want to consider volunteering. Sometimes getting "out of yourself" makes a huge difference on the way you feel about everything.

  • She is being attacked by the enemy they are messing with her mind and making her question the promises of God...she needs to take all thoughts captive and renew her mind with the Word of God...she needs to tell those thoughts to LEAVE IN JESUS NAME and she needs to surround herself with ppl who encourage her and pray with her...the enemy is sneaky and he will growl every chance he gets tell her she needs to take authority over that spirit and tell it to SHUT UP!

  • Good grief, it is an anxiety disorder.  Get help by getting into activities and if need be see a counselor.
