    Are you afraid of dying or the act of doing so?

    I'm quite comfortable dying,(if I had to of course), but the actual moment rouses my curiousity lately.

    I assume you mean you're comfortable with the IDEA of dying, cuz you ain't dead yet. I saw a lot of friends die during the worst years of the AIDS epidemic. I am not looking forward to it.

    I also had a classic near death experience in a hospital about 20 years ago. It was actually pleasurable but I don't think it was "real" in any metaphysical way.

    I'm good with the idea of dying my only "fear" is is dying a violent death, that's all.

    Let me clarify, I'm not ill at all. However, I try to live life to my satisfaction knowing I could die tomorrow.

    I know so many people afraid to die, that doesn;t scare me just how the actual moment will feel.

    Sorry, a morbid topic, just on my mind.

    My biggest fear is dieing alone without having ever experiencing that feeling of true love..... That is what scare a true hopeless romantic

    There's a few people who would be really sad if I died, and since I care a lot about said people, I'd really rather stay alive. If I were without meaningful relationships though I don't think I'd mind too much for myself.

    It's not so much that I'm afraid of dying... I just don't want to be there when it happens.

    No, not really. I've tried to end it 3 times before. All failed. So if one has tried the act of suicide, can he really be afraid of death?

    I wasn't very kind to myself in the late 90's. Multiple near death dance floor overdoses and such. Dying actually seemed pretty cool at the time, but I got over that when I came down. Now I'm not so keen on croaking. I try to enjoy every day because I know I might not get another one. When I do go though, I can't decide weather it would be cooler to die peacefully, or in some hilariously improbable fashion like a massive stroke during frenzied sex or getting crushed by a fat woman throwing herself off the top of the Sears Tower.

    I'm not really afraid of death, it's that act of dying that scares me to death.

    Dying - I don't want to be around when that happens.

    Death- If it is anything like the time before I was born or nights when don't dream I can handle it.

    As for me I am hoping for robot bodies to replace organic bodies when my time is running out.

    DEATH is just the termination of chemical reactions in our bodies. A mere level of elimation the conversion of chemicals into energy. Death is a part of the cycle of Life or cycle of death.

    It should not be feared, but respected for it is just Nature

    I am deeply attached to the particular chemical reactions in my body that sustain my life. To anyone who has similar sentiments dying would be a hateful happening.

    I have always thought that the finite nature of our existance gives it its meaning, but i doubt that will be completely consoling when the time comes.

    Im comfortable with it, because well technical i already have died. I had cancer and during the surgery i had a heart attack, and it took 5 minutes to revive me. i just remember seeing swirling lights, like looking inside a white tornado.
