Thinking of death is not unusual, the only problem is we cannot do anything about it when it is your time, what can you do about it.

When I die the world will just carry on without us, we are all programmed to die, Our contract with the Lord above is personal to you and no-one else. We can stamp our feet, shout and scream and many other things. Nothing you or I can do. when our time is up we hand back to tools of our existence and we go back sitting one a great big cloud with our harp and wings.

In my teens and twenties I would consider how I would cheat death, there is just nothing we can do If our time is twenty or sixty years old that is it we go to our Lords dimension. So why worry, what can we all do.

If you dwell on this problem for the next seventy years what a waste of your time, all that worry and fear. Just accept what your fate will be and live life with kindness and understanding, take every day as it is presented.

When you have got to go, you have got too go.

I am sixty five my time is shortening and I really hope I die without pain or worry.

That is all I can ask for, we are all the same the rich and famous and the very poor we all will go the same way and that is it, I suppose as long as I can take my Pip and Pax out for walks eventually and Hazel and I can visit gardens and other interests together. that is all I can wish for. Believe me to worry about death is a waste time you have on this earth.

Enjoy your life, the only things in life we cannot change is births and deaths

Sorry.

BOB

Try praying and think positive always. You really need to tell yourself to stop all the negative think it's not good and remember we all die and understand it's life . You will be okay just be more positive , thinking negative can make you panic and it's very scary feeling. Don't forget your not alone . Remember theirs nothing to worry about God is with you always . Be safe and think positive always.

If you are thinking about death because you are feeling bad please contact someone like the Samaritans. I may have misunderstood you but would rather err on the side of caution.

I worry about death alot sometimes to the extent that I make sure the house is tidy because I think I won't wake up and I don't want to be remembered for being scruffy and lazy, it's just another negative affect of anxiety and panic, it will come and go but mine provides me with a laugh when I think of what I was thinking a few days earlier etc.

I worry too, every night I am convinced I will not wake up. My heart is pounding, and I get this shaking feeling throughout my body, and head throbs. I'm not ready to go, and entering mid life with two young children that I want to see grow up.

I fear I will die in my sleep while my husband is out of town,and my children will find me, and have nothing to eat for days, or no one to care for them because no one checks on us.

I'm an anxiety medication, which does help. Currently, I am trying to explore my life so far from the perspective of the "dying" person. As in, describe how my journey has been. What are the most joyful moments, what have I accomplished? What are my priorities if I had to do one last thing...I'm not trying to be morose, but become comfortable with my own inevitable death.

hey stop worrying, everything in life is connected and you were brought here for a purpose. You will not leave this planet unless you have done what you needed to do.
