    I fear the process of dying, and all the pain and discomfort that comes with it, but I don't fear being dead. I certainly don't fear ceasing to be conscious, because I will be gone, unable to feel anything. I think it's highly unlikely that there's some kind of god who could potentially punish me in hell for eternity, so I don't fear that.

    Death is just another transition. What is more scary is the events between life and death.

    So no, I don't fear what comes at/after death, but I do fear the things I may/could of done proceeding death.

    It is like a cranky old man complaining about his life about how he wished he could of done more or have done something while he was growing up before he was to pass away, that is 100x more scary than actually dying.

    I dread my life ending before I can set it right. Although...I'm coming to realize that my idea of "right" is nigh superhuman and to see the resulting eternal dissatisfaction as more of a perpetual motion machine than a hopeless mission. With this temperament, I won't ever rest on my laurels or let my focus diffuse. On my deathbed, I might be proud to have never let myself become satisfied.

    Also, mega fear of annihilation.

    I mainly fear of what I'd feel like the moment before death. I'm scared whether my last moments will be painful or not. I've also been having trouble wrapping my head around the thought of losing complete consciousness as if I never existed in the first place, which does scare me to a degree. I'm also afraid of the people I could be leaving behind, and those I love leaving me. In fact, I'd be happy if there was an afterlife, but I'm not even sure if they're is one like everyone else on this Earth.

    Hell yes

    Hell yes

    Hell yes, again.

    These are precisely the reasons why I fear death.

    Not death itself, particularly, but I do fear voids. If there is an afterlife, whether it be some variant of heaven, hell, or limbo, I figure I'm clever enough to get where I want to be given time. If there's nothing, though, I'm kind of screwed.

    Do you fear death? No. Just want to hang on till my kids are well --- well ---- on their way- when they can do okay without me.

    Do you fear what lay after death? The abyss, heaven, hell, paradise, reincarnation? Nope- I don't fear it. I welcome it.

    Or do you fear leaving this place behind, not being able to watch the grand show play out? I will be able to see it play out from beyond. And I'm sure some of it will be nasty.

    Or do you welcome it, awaiting the great beyond to finally understand? I welcome fate.

    If that's not the case, then you don't actually know that. There are SO many ways for a person to die that it's impossible to know where you'll end up dying. You might have a strong leaning, inclination, or desire to die there, but you by no means know that.
    This is true.

    I have chosen to die in Canberra, a beautiful city. And it is quite likely I will die in the hospice in a beautiful place by the lake without pain.

    And in choosing where to die gives me some control over my own death.

    And I think it is losing dignity and control as we are dying that fuels the fear of dying.

    However at the present time I am not dying.

    I am at home in Canberra and having decided to die at home, I can forget about it and enjoy living every day.
