This has been something that has profoundly troubled me. Just knowing that I will die, that there is nothing I can do about it, that eventually my mind will cease to function, that every trace of me will eventually be non-existent, etc. I have had a lot of depression throughout my life, from dealing with family suicides, to social anxiety at school and work, to fear of my future, having to cope with people ignoring me and not wanting to resolve the conflict, but this one has given me extreme trouble, too. It's one of those things I constantly think of, on both ends. I fear death, but I am  also curious about it, I get paralyzed with fear of death, yet I also wonder what it would be like. I don't know if this is a result of other underlying issues that I have had/continue to have, and I transfer my worries of that to death, but if you guys have some ways of coping with that, I'd like to hear it. Or maybe I'm just desperate to talk and am making this thread because of that
