Anyone here ever get that feeling that death is gonna come knocking real real soon? I've had this feeling for a good year and a half now. It feels like i'm on borrowed time. Everytime i feel my heart skip a beat or I drift off to sleep i wonder if i have everything i need to take care of taken care of.

This is one of the reasons ive been depressed about where my life is at the moment. It seems that life has really been nothing but stress and work for as long as i can remember. Because of this stress and work it feels like i've gone nowhere fast. Most of my friends have gone their separate ways.

Ever since about the beginning of october (last year), there have been four major things on my mind:

1) School 2) Music 3) Schoolwork 4) Death.

With regards to your post, I can relate to your situation alot. The only difference is, you're out of school, and I'm in it.

I just don't like the idea of the death - or the cycle of life and death, because I'm a creative person and not a destructive one. But there has be balance. We're never going to know how much time we have left, so as cliche' as it may be, we have to make the most of it.

What pisses me off though - is not death itself, but the many different ideas of what 'happens to us' after our bodies cease to function. It just gets entangling and annoying, thats the part none of us want to think about.

But yes, we're all on burrowed time. If it wasnt for things like accidents and/or diseases, we might be able to use all of that time.

I think Stewie Griffin said it best ; "The only reason we die... is because we accept it... as an inevitability..." Which, although it's coming from an animated baby on drugs, makes a good point. Maybe in a weird future world, a scientist will reject death and create some kind of elixer of life, or something. But then of course the government would have to set a life limit to stop overcrowding and you'd be painlessly executed as soon as you reach 120.

Woah, major rambling there. In any case, at the moment, there's nothing you can do about death and it's uncertanity, so you may aswell make the best of it, and have a bath or something.

You're twenty two. The world is your oyster. You don't need to be thinking about death just yet.

I wish. I've been in college for the last 3 years. Being burnt out and this being one of the most stressful semesters ive ever had is probably to blame. It all started when I started taking calculus and then got worse when i started taking calII. :uhoh:

Burnout because of college? I know that math can be hard, but it's not a reason to despair. Look for the root of the problem, in this case probably the way you learn for math, and work on that.

Thinking about death at your age doesn't seem like a healthy idea, if you don't think you can deal with your situation you should look for professional help as people around here may not know enough about such situations.

The work load isn't the root. It's more an aggravator.

Thats beside the point. When i brought this topic up i wasn't looking for advice. The original question was whether anyone else had an extreme nagging worry about their mortality.

I used to think a lot about my own death. I had visions of my death. And this was no more than a month ago. But I got over it, and stopped having those thoughts. One thing I realized out of that experience was that I myself created those feelings and visions of my own death. Up until that time, as you are going through now, I was depressed. I felt as though I was going nowhere in life and accomplishing nothing. I thought about my death a lot because I thought about killing my self a lot. (I am not saying you do, just saying what I went through...) I had visions of my death because I was depressed. But I got over it, and now I’m happy. Kind of weird though, as I have not been depressed for a long time. It came as quickly as it passed. I think that most people get in a rut at some point in their lives. Some more than others.
