  • Well... i wouldn't say i'm afraid of it, because I believe everyone dies alone. I'm just... not looking forward to it. If that makes any sense...? :)
  • No. I also don't worry what's gonna happen to my body. When I'm dead, nothing really matters anymore, right? ;)
  • meh, I'm not afraid to die alone, because at that point it doesn't really matter at all. But I'm extremely nervous about the possibility that I might end up dieing alone
  • yes...i am....
  • No,not really.
  • I know I will, so I don't worry about it.
  • No, but I am afraid that I will die and the people I love will not know how much I love them.
  • No way! My voices will be here long after Im gone.
  • Not at this age. I might feel different when I'm older.
  • Very much so.
  • I am going to die alone so I shouldnt be scared! :)
  • No. I guess as long as I die without too much pain its fine. My ex boyfriend made me want to die for so long, feeling like I want to live recently feels really kind of nice. :-)
  • I have always heard that no one dies alone and I choose to take comfort in that. I have heard that your loved ones who have gone before you come to greet you. I believe this, because I know people who talked to members of their family who had died, just as if they were standing right there with them and they usually passed away soon after. My MIL talked of seeing people who had died a week or so before she herself passed away.
  • I am more afraid of living alone!
  • We all die alone..no one takes the trip with us.
  • Think about it once in a while, but in the end I'll be dead, so I don't worry about it.
  • I'm not afraid of dying alone. I'm afraid of my death not meaning anything. If I'm going down, I'm going down fighting, and hopefully for a worthwhile reason.
  • It really depends. If it is a long drawn out process then yes. Now if I die in my sleep I would be afraid for the poor person who found me.
  • I hope I don't. I have a big family, and I have a wonderful bf. I'd want someone to hold my hand...someone that will miss me when I'm gone.
  • Death is something that we all must face alone, in the sense of it's highly personal. In that regard, we are ALL alone in death. (At least the death process, religious and spiritual beliefs attempt to address the fears and such.) Personally I am VERY fearful of dying alone - mostly the feelings that there will not be anyone around. Perhaps more to cases, the feeling that I do not really matter that much to anyone. Which is really a product of my dysfunctional family history, but I digress.. The most important thing is to address the fears - what is it that you are afraid of? One thing that could help (especially in later years) is to get connected into a good caring community such as a church that actively promotes a congregation that cares for each other. To be honest, when I get these fears (which is a LOT) what it really tells me is that I feel horridly disconnected from people - ironically, I react to that with dark fantasy thoughts of bypassing that fear of dying alone with simply killing myself -- a weird, "self-protective" sort of thinking. (Plus a lot of retaliation too.) Perhaps more accurately, I am not so worried about dying alone than I am about BEING alone. Which in some ways can actually feel WORSE than dying...
  • not afraid,something i accepted along time ago
  • Great - here is another DR for me. I really don't want anyone to die with me as I don't see any great advantage in that. Also when push comes to shove I believe we all die alone. +5 because what in the heck are they worh if not given? Short answer is no.
  • i did not realize there was another way, i can actually join souls with someone and die with them, no thanks, this is my death and i am not sharing!!
  • They say every second two people die so I guess I won't be alone!
  • It's actually basically my only fear. I am too young to seriously worry about it yet, but that doesn't stop me from worrying...
  • No, I accept it at this stage of life.
  • I know that I will never die alone in that Jesus is always with me in life and in death. It would definitely be good to have family members present when I die. I am not afraid of death per se, but more the process of having to suffer or struggling for air before I do. I do trust Christ that I will be given the grace to go thru it and because of what He has done for me by his death on the cross for my sin, I will be victorious in death just as I can be in life. The Bible says, "absent from the body, present with the Lord."
  • Nobody ever dies alone since over 150,000 people die each day. You'll be together as you cross over to the other side. And besides, if you are a believer in our Savior Jesus Christ, He will never forsake you.
  • I wasn't afraid when i was born alone so i am not afraid of dying alone. death will come when it will
  • im afraid of death.
  • +5 We all die alone. The real question is are you afraid when you die will Jesus be there or the devil ?
  • I am not afraid of it; I expect it, but I am not afraid of it.
  • terrified.
  • I don't see how that' would be avoidable.
  • It would be preferential not to, but, I would not regret dying alone, as long as I die in a room with a big window and a lovely view, nice books, and knowing that I was genuinely loved and made some difference to somebody.
  • Nope. I want to die alone. It's a private thing for me. I'd rather wander into the wilderness until I dropped than to have a bunch of people around me while I took my final breath.
  • Based on the last time I almost died: though alone (without people) at the bottom of the lake, there were plenty of others there: A Choir singing beautiful songs, fish swimming all around and one large gold fish which I wanted to touch so badly. Every time it swam by I reached out for it but never made contact. I was not alone.
  • No. I think most people die alone. I certainly don't want take anyone else with me!
