Growing Old

Warning this could be considered a "Debbie Downer" post, but its just the way I feel.

Last night in bed Hubs and I were talking about something and I told him he was going to give me a heart attack. He said that I am not supposed to be the first to go. And with those words the bubble popped, I was brought back to the real world.

Sometimes I feel like my life is a dream, not a dream as in everything is good all the time, more like the life I am living is all in my head. Or that I am really someone else looking in on another person's life. I rarely ever think about getting old, but when I do I am afraid of death. I am afraid that when that time comes I won't be ready, that I will leave too much behind. Maybe I feel this way because there are still so many other experiences I have yet to check off my bucket list, so many other feelings I have not felt, so many things I have not seen.

I sometimes wonder what happens to my soul after death, what it will actually feel like to die.

Am I alone on fearing death?

Nope, I think about death all the time. My mom says it happens to everyone in their 20's, her advice is go to church and pray lol

I am absolutely terrified by death. I think about it all the time to the point where it stresses me out.
