Dying - June 28th 2011, 04:01 PM

I think I have a problem. I have a massive phobia of myself dying. If I think about death I start crying. I don't believe in heaven, hell, ghosts or reincarnation. All I believe is once we die we will just... disappear :/ that terrifies me. I know it shouldn't as if that's the case nothing will happen when I die, but I think that's worse. Wtf is "nothing"? I know "nothing" happened before we were born so it has happened once before. A part of me believes in reincarnation because of that but I doubt it's true.

Once I'm dead nothing may as well carry on as I can't see it.

I try not to think about it but that makes me think about it more >.>

Life is pointless in a way :/

Hi there,
I know what you mean. I've been having this issue for years, and I react similarly, (But sometimes it's an all-out panic attack), but the depression of it. I get that. :c
But, I don't know if this will help, but when I have these moments, I take a deep breath, think of all the people around me that I love, and all that I have to look forward to, and try not to dwell on what comes after death. I just try to relax, and remember what I have, who I have etc. Memories, and such.

Oh and, life isn't pointless, unless you let it be. c:
