I was wondering, does anything fear death and have really bad anxiety over it? It's been bugging me and It's the scariest thing that I can think of right now.

I think fear of death is very common but most people put it out of their minds.

I suffer from this but feel it stems from the death of my mum was she past away when I was aged 17 she was 40, am coming to that age now, does this relate to anyone?

I think that fear of death is really fear of dying before living life to the fullest.

I am not afraid of dying as my older brother died in an accident when I was 12. I figure if he did it so can I. I am more frighten of nightmares about death. No Fears and No Worries Lots of love and hugs Jules

I used to be afraid of death.It made me so frightened I was afraid to drive even.Someone told me once though that you only die once and that changed my fear and attitude about it.Knowing it's only a once in a lifetime thing somehow made it much easier.

No. Death is a release from all of this (I'm not talking self-inflicted). If it should happen my malfunctioning brain will cease to function - nothing to be afraid of in that.
