Genuine_Ghost Posted August 28, 2011 Share Posted August 28, 2011 I don't know if this would be more appropriately posted somewhere else, since most of the threads here are about other people who have died, but I will post here anyway as it seems the most relevant. I recently finished university and turned 23, and in the last few months, I have become fully and painfully aware of my own mortality. I'm going to try and say this in the shortest way possible. I simply cannot come to terms with the fact that I am a biological entity and that I will cease to exist. I feel detached from my body, like my consciousness is more than just these physical limitations, but I know this not be true - or at least it cannot be proved not to be true. I feel like I am facing the end of the world, since when we die, the world ends and we fade into non-existence. I simply cannot comprehend this, and it has caused me major panic and and anxiety attacks, obsessing over the fragility and finite nature of this biological machine that I am. I am living with the possibility of death at the forefront of my consciousness at all times, and at the moment this is incredibly painful. I really don't know what to do, so anyone who has thought the same, is in the same position, or anyone who has any advice, it would be great to hear from you. Link to comment
