    I'm not talking about being depressed and thinking about suicide or anything.

    Lately I have been thinking about my own death a lot lately. I mostly imagine my own funeral and my family members being there crying and whatnot. I even think about it if I was very old too.

    Or, when I see something about a car accident on TV, I imagine if I was in that situation and what it would be like.

    Sometimes when I'm in my car I think about how easily one of these cars could simply swerve into my lane and kill me. We all put a lot of trust into strangers!

    I'm just wondering if other people think about this as much as I do.

    I think about death


    then realize that it is in fact inevitable, so why spend any time worrying about it

    I used to obsess about it, however that was at a time when many people close to me were dying :sad2:

    It's still my biggest fear, and I tend to calculate the odds that I will/could get killed in certain situations though. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I have a lot to lose.

    I always keep it in the back of my head whenever I do something. It's good to have a healthy consciousness of death. Not fear, but more of a realization that it can come at any time. I've almost died several times in my life from not caring.

    I know I do. Not everyday. With the car swerving into another lane, or something. Its just so weird to think how fragile we are and how easily it could all be over.

    I didn't think about it until I had kids.
    Now the news makes me cry and I fear leaving them behind all the time

    I never used to think about death until my dad died from cancer. It scared me. I think about it frequently but I'm not obsessed. Especially as I get older.

    I hope I go in my sleep because I don't want to lie in a hospital bed waiting to die.
