I'm not afraid of dying.

I very much don't want to; I love being alive so, so much. But being dead isn't scary.

I was so excited about this, but when I went to try to get on the bone marrow donation registry, I found out that I can't do either. I'm really really bummed.

I'm not scared of death at all, really.

I am scared of missing out.

I know that is what you want, and that is a wonderful thing. By the other list I meant being a recipient

However, my absolute greatest fear is dying while my children are young. I can't even imagine not being here for them...to feed them, to tuck them in at night, to hug them and love them. I worry about what would happen to them if something were to happen to me.
this is the way I feel

I don't know. I like being alive a lot. I don't want to be dead. Sometimes I especially get frustrated wanting to know what the world will turn into thousands of years in the future. Or pieces of science that are just now coming into place and knowing I won't likely see the fruit of it.

I think about all the ones that have gone before me and draw strength from them. I don't know if that makes any sense.

I also know my faith and know I don't believe that death is just the end. Most the time I am okay with the thought of dying. I know it is part of life and the way things go. But every now and then (especially at night) there will be a little pang of fear. But then again the only time I ever get anxious is at night so I think that is what it has to do with.

While I don't have the faith aspect. I am not sure what will happen when I die.. will there be something else? reincarnation? or just nothing..

I really get upset about the idea of being dead. Someone once said to me "the world existed long before you were born and it didn't bother you.. why should it bother you that the world will go on after you have passed?"

And I really think that what Laur said hits it on the nail for me:

I can read about what happened before I came on the scene so to speak. But I can't know the future. And I want to! I have a burning curiosity about so many things. Its like reading a fantastic book and never being able to get to the end (because hopefully there is no end)

I really like life and would be happy being immortal (can I wish my dog immortal too?)

Even though I am greatly annoyed by not knowing what happens next I have always like Issac Asimov's quote:

"Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome"
