This is probably going to sound stupid, and I hope I don't trigger anyone by posting this, but how do you get over the fear of death? No, I don't want to get over it so it would be easier to end my life. I want to get over it because every time I think about it, I will have a great sense of fear and panic. Everyone I talk to tells me they are not afraid of death, and I wonder how, when thinking of it will make my heart race and turn my insides to jelly. I know it is irrational, but I know why it scares me more than anything. I can overcome a fear of bees, or snakes, or heights, but since death is inevitable, I can't shake that fear. I am scared of losing everyone and then losing my own life. I am scared of how it will feel and what happens afterwards. So, how do I overcome this fear, or at least stop thinking of it so often?
