I'm feeling so worried about dying

    Hi, I made the mistake of watching the news and basically they were talking about how horrible Russia is. I'm finding myself getting all worked up and panicky (yet again) about dying, ww3, nuclear attacks etc. This is horrible and I just want to calm down. I know that there's nothing I can do but I just wanted to post here, to let out how I feel. The massive fear of death is always there, bubbling underneath the surface. Simply watching the bleak news or having an unexplained pain in my body can make it flare up so badly. And I'm tired of it.

    Why fear something that is inevitable?
    Best thing to do is embrace it

    Hiya!

    I am absolutely petrified of dying. Well, mostly the way I will die freaks me out, and what comes after it. I am not religious, I don't believe in a soul, heaven or hell, but I despise the unknown. I like to know absolutely everything in my life, what has happened and what is to come, and I think that is why I am petrified of death.

    I know it will happen. I have accepted that it will happen. I just want to know how and why and when, if you get what I mean.

    What I am trying to say is that you are not the only one. :hugs:

    Take a deep breath. Remember, we are all here too! There are many people by your side and I'm pretty sure everyone is scared of dying, so don't worry so much. (I'm scared of dying as well.)

    I think it is a perfectly natural feeling to be afraid of dying. But try to live for each day, one day at a time. You will hopefully not be approaching death for another 60 plus years. That's an awful lot of days spent worrying about something that is a very long way off, when you should be concentrating on the here and now and enjoying life.
