    Why is death considered bad?

    I've been thinking about it a lot. Death is a natural part of life. Do we not each own the fundamental right to decide our life/death? And I think death would be peaceful... so why is it bad? And why do people say, "at least they're in a better place now"? Is that not admitting that death was...

    Should I be concerned?

    So my mother's terminal illness, a brain tumor, is probably going to kill her very soon. Lately, Im wishing it was me dying, not her. I also wish I could die, so that I don't lose her. My life is a nightmare now. The only relative who understood me (whilst not getting everything right) is gone...

    I'm about to lose my mother

    So, back in february while getting ready for a holiday in Norway, my mother collapsed and was rushed to hospital, unable to walk or balance. After weeks of testing, they have discovered a brain tumor. Within 3 weeks of it being found, it progressed from a small one on one side of her brain, to a...

    Suffering with Thanatophobia

    For the reasons unknown to me, at just 21, I suffer from this terrible lonely battle, to feel so isolated and imprisoned by thoughts. I do not fear death itself or the process of dying but only the thought of no longer existing after death. My fear is that it will be like sleeping without...

    The clock is ticking

    Last night made me even more determined to end it all. I wasn't successful ending it two months ago, but this time I'll make sure it happens before the New Year. I am sick to death of this, and don't tell me to explore other options. There are no other options.

    Don't float up after death.

    Please don't float up to the ozone or spirit mist after death or you will be crushed as we come out of the body as tiny floating thinking spirit ghost embryos ready to grow. Try and get into a body to survive after death. Watch out for the moon and Mars in time for people colonising as space...

    I feel like I'm going insane.

    I have struggled with anxiety for my entire 20 years of life. I started medication because my anxiety was so bad and was on Prozac for around a year. That stopped helping and now I have been on Sertraline for 2 years. The Sertraline has helped me immensely with my anxiety and I have not had any...

    Seismophobia and Thanatophobia

    WARNING: this might be rambly, because I'm pretty distressed :( I live in Oregon. As you may or may not know, we are (arguably) overdue for a devastating 9.0+ earthquake that will all but split the state in half. They say it may kill over 30,000 people, and may happen tomorrow, or in 800 years...

    Weary of life and just need to unload

    Hello all. I should start by saying, I don't need an intervention. I have no suicide plan. Suicide would distress my loved ones, whom I don't want to distress. Plus, I know of no method that seems sure enough, and I don't want to end up disabled or in a hospital. I should also say I've got...
