    NO I'm not. I happy to say that my yout is growing up nicely*Grin like I'm the only person with a child*. What I am more afraid of is living so long as to become a burden on my family (which will be that son of mine) and cause him/them to have to put there life on hold or adjust to my time table. In my opinion Death is natural apart of nature. Longivity is not, it the anomaly. The flesh is weak, the soul eternal.

    and your not weird...

    yes only maybe a year now I've been having anxiety attacks too especially while watching tv or movies depicting people dying or lying in a morgue. it terrifies me that 1 day my lifeless body will be there too to me it seems like a very cruel joke that we are born to die.

    I'm reading what you posted and it echos my feelings. It is so scary to me that one day it's all over. It's scary to me, and now with this war my fear is getting worst. I haven't had an attack in a while, I was too busy loving the 2 men in my life (son and boyfriend), but this morning I watched my son walk in the bathroom and stare at me for a second, the news playing in the background and the attack hit me. I don't know how to make that go away.

    I'm not afraid to go, but...at the same time, I don't want to go! I think it's kinda different when you have young children. That has a GREAT impact on your outlook on life, because you're then living for others and not yourself.
    **I definitely know that I'm not ready to go as yet because I would love to see my wedding day, the day that I give birth, etc. Like Cimo said though...I don't ever want to get to the point where I am a burden to my children and husband (if he outlives me). I could care less about everyone else.

    Try and imagine the opposite...
    Think back of a good memory, picture your son growing up, picture your son with his son in the future, picture yourself en la isla del encanto, and so on...

    Yea, that's another thing. I don't think about that, but I mean...no one wants to suffer though. I think if we all had the option, we would want to go as quickly and as pain free as possible. When I was younger, I always wanted, when I die, to die in my sleep (I know...what child thinks about those things?)

    you know that is true, once u have children it changes your outlook on a lot of stuff. I had a fear of death before, but it's gotten worst since I had him. I don't know if it's because 9/11 happened around the same time or what, but my fear is defenitely getting worse.
