Perhaps you are afraid because you do not have a faith, or are not entirely devoted to a religion. By converting to a religion, you can at least feel more confident. Death is a great unknown, but religion can at least provide some type of explanation, true or not. Like Ice Cube said, "If you a scared motha f**ka, got to church!"Health Question & Answer

Everyone is afraid of what's unknown to a certain degree, like death, the future, etc. It helps to have a good religious background to cope and/or learn how to deal with them. Death is a part of nature, of the circle of life and it affects everything that lives...You might need the help of a mental professional to help you with the anxiety aspects of your fear. Take care and God bless.Health Question & Answer

I really do understand. I used to try to figure it out, but it would upset me to think in terms of infinity. Then I read a quote about "a coward dies a thousand deaths; a brave man but one." To me that meant that you can think about dying and obsess about it, but you won't figure it out and you're wasting your precious time. So, whenever I get to thinking about it, and that quote comes to mind, I remember that I can't waste time dealing with death while I'm alive and well.
I can deal with it once....when the time comes.Health Question & Answer

Well, my little sister also started feeling this way but it's no big deal! Who cares about death.? Live everyday like it is your last one! Death isn;t hard trust me! In one second you're on Earth and in another second you're in heaven. Everyone has to Die. Don't be afraid, be brave don't worry about the future just worry about the present and eventually the future will be present at some point. We all live and we all die. Life is a gift from God. Live it up!Health Question & Answer

In my view, if you are afraid about death, it is because it is on your mind at the moment, try to understand why you are thinking about death, this should help you overcome the fear.
If you are in an stressfull mindset, lots of paranoyas can happen.
Keep you mind clear, and stay cool.
