How are you most afraid to die?

September 16th, 2012, 12:12 AM
Being stabbed or shot late at night. Specifically in a drive-by shooting ,but just being killed on the streets late at night in general. My city isn't entirely the safest city, in fact we've been ranked the most dangerous city in the US several times.I've also been almost mugged twice on my way to places. So walking at night anywhere makes me sort of uncomfortable and I feel like someone is gonna come out and stab/shoot me.

I'm most afraid of dying early like murder or a fatal disease at a young age. I'd rather die due to natural causes.

Something that is slow and excruciatingly painful beyond belief.

Being shot,or dying in a fire or something, pretty much anything that's not natural causes.

There's no specific cause of death that frightens me more since they're all kind of abstract in a way, but I am afraid of dying suddenly before I have a chance to say any last words to people or put my affairs in order.

Anything violent or anything drawn out like illness.

I'm not really okay with dying, anyway. :\

September 16th, 2012, 10:55 AM
Drowning. They make it seem so peaceful on TV, but the idea of water filling your lungs sounds uber painful, to me, I'd pass. I'd also rather not be hanged, since it takes a while to die. Decapitation also disagrees with me, or rather my head.

I'd rather die from falling off a building, or saving someone I love. Period

For me the worst way to go is hypothermia - slowly freezing to death, 2nd worst way is burned alive, unable to escape or stranded/lost in the desert.

I would hate to die a long painful death more than anything else.
Id prefer to go fast like a bullet to the head or something. Instant death would be preferred :D

September 16th, 2012, 8:26 PM
I agree with everyone, but especially the breathing related stuff. But for me also afraid of a heart attack or a stroke or being murdered ;(

September 16th, 2012, 8:29 PM
Even though being murdered by my father and being killed during a robbery of my house at night are pretty high up there, it would probably have to be from a hurricane, seeing as I live in Florida and hurricanes are come way too often here because we can be hit from 3 sides ;_;

September 16th, 2012, 8:36 PM
my only scare would be not to make a difference before I die.

If I get killed, it's supposed to happen I guess. God's will, you know. I'll let him take care of the life issue and I'll work on giving unfortunate people happiness.

September 16th, 2012, 11:58 PM
This thread is a little morbid... but I'd say that any sort of death by asphyxiation would probably be the worst (drowning, hanging, choking, etc.) I guess anything else that isn't instant or at least fairly quick (starvation, burned alive, bleeding to death) would be pretty bad.

September 17th, 2012, 12:04 AM
Anything where my insides are pulled out or taken to places where they're not supposed to be. I suppose, also burning to death is another great fear of mine, since I think it's a horribly painful way to die.

Cancer or some other long disease. I think the stress of it all would do my head in long before I actually died. The constant fear and worry that your life may be coming to a close. It's the advance notice and the anticipation that worries me more than death itself.

September 20th, 2012, 11:59 AM
Definitely cancer or some kind of fatal disease which takes a long time to take effect. It'd be so scary counting down the days till you're expected to die :(

Personally, I wish I did know when I was going to die. That isn't to say I wish I had cancer, though. But if you knew how long you had until you died, you would also know how long you had to truly live. Meh.

Anyway. I'm terrified of drowning. But I love to swim. >_>;

September 20th, 2012, 1:41 PM
Drowning. Uhhhg thinking about it makes hard to breathe :s

September 20th, 2012, 4:34 PM
Since I'm terrified of heights, anything where I die falling off a building or bridge or something similar. Also being burned to death. *shudders*

Totally agree with you on this one. I'm not so afraid of death on its own (I'm very Dumbledorian in my "next great adventure" mindset, haha), but the idea of my quality of life deteriorating up to my death is definitely disturbing. While I'm here I want to be able to make the fullest of it, and having watched several family members ravaged by cancer I can definitely say it would be my #1 way NOT to die. :| lol

September 21st, 2012, 12:54 PM
Quickly and with no knowledge of how I fell.

I don't know if afterlife exists, but even then, I can't go back and say my goodbyes. It just pains me to even thing about it. ._.

September 21st, 2012, 5:42 PM
From where I'm from I'd have to say stabbed or shot. Especially at night. There's gangs all up and down the streets and I'm not in the hood just close to it. That's what happens when you live in the inner city or the suberbs.

Cancer, most definitely. I had an uncle die from it last year. From how I was told it happened, I can't imagine a worse way to go. I actually had a few nightmares just from the description. I'd rather it be quick. Cancer is so slow and horrible.

I'd just want it over with, really.

Anything where it's long, drawn out and painful. I have a very low tolerance for pain, so being in a world of pain for a long time frightens me. If I'm going to die, I just want it to get over with quickly instead of dragging on the process.

September 25th, 2012, 4:44 PM

probably drowning

or some injury where im fatally bleeding and waiting for myself to run out of blood

or being killed by a ghost lol thats bad too.

September 25th, 2012, 6:13 PM
I'm petrified of falling down a huge building. It'd be frightening to still be alive as I'm falling and just await my death. ;_; Also scared of burning to death though, and being stabbed... ugh. Not something I want to think about right now lmao.

September 26th, 2012, 4:13 AM
Death by prolonged torture sounds the scariest to me.

September 26th, 2012, 7:13 AM
what i fear more than death is that i'm really going to miss the people in my life..the thought of separation scares me!!..the way of death!!,i try not to think about that tbh...things like drowning or burning sounds scary!

September 26th, 2012, 9:21 AM
#4 is starvation #3 is mutilation #2 is being burned alive #1 is asphyxiation (choking drowning)

September 27th, 2012, 7:03 PM
It's a tie between being stabbed and drowning. I feel that drowning is like the sea draining the life out of you from the inside-out and I've also heard it's an extremely painful way to die and painful is not in my vocabulary. Stabbing is on equal grounds because it seems like such an easy thing to avoid/fix (take the knife out!) but... I can't really explain it. It's like one of those things where you feel like you can fix it or tell someone else how to fix it but either can't do it or the words to tell the other person how escape you and the world ends up crumbling around you because of it. ;;

Alzheimers. I had to watch my great-grandparents go through it. It is the saddest thing I ever have seen.

September 27th, 2012, 7:34 PM
In general, if it's slow and painful, I don't want it. Quick and as painless as possible, please.

I'd hate to be trapped while I die. Buried alive? Drowning? Ugh.

Automobile accident. Can't imagine being cut off from life in one instant.

Anything where it's slow and painful would be terrible, but I feel like being trapped in some claustrophobic space with little air would be worse. For instance, if I was in a coffin underground, the panic would be unbelievable, especially if I really couldn't move and there were spiders and other bugs crawling all over me. And meanwhile said coffin really hot and gross.

Sorry, I got a little carried away.

September 28th, 2012, 6:05 PM
I'd have to say all of them but if I have to choose, I'd say falling from a tall building/cliff since I am totally scared of heights.

I mean, falling from massive heights would result in instant death.

Being stabbed or shot. I just cant imagine how that feels.

Buried alive. Or anything to do with my neck or wrists. So strangulation/self-harm is completely off the table when it comes to killing myself. Not that I plan to kill myself... or die any time soon. But those are the ways that would most freak me out.

October 7th, 2012, 7:40 AM
Slipping on a banana then falling into a vat of toxic waste that will slowly decompose my skin while gangsters are shooting their thompsons at me at full force, and during that time wasps are stinging me right on my eyes so painfully I start to bleed from them and they're coming out of my socket and to finish it off, I get my head squashed by a huge brick that instantly flattens my head, in which by that time I think I'm pretty much dead.

Hope that never happens to me :(

October 7th, 2012, 8:14 AM
Apparently drowning is actually a relaxing way to go, because the last couple of minutes your body just shuts down and you feel like you're just floating in water. Not that I would want to drown.

Worst way for me would be falling from a ridiculous height and knowing you're going to die when you hit the ground, burning to death, or prolonged torture for obvious reasons.

Anything that's slow and drawn out torture. Some of the things I am scared of include terminal illness, getting buried alive, stabbed, burned, poisoned, limbs cut off or heavy body mutilation, drowning, some guy with a gun who has terrible aim, road accidents, plus many others. Dying in a deep sleep sounds like the best possible deal because at least then you won't have to suffer through it.

October 9th, 2012, 10:13 PM
Being brutally murdered and my body would never be discovered. Urgh. If I die like that, I wish I could have the chance to talk to my family for the last time. Tell them I love them, you know.
