Preoccupied with Death

I'm not sure why, but lately all I can think about is death. I've always been death-phobic, I think, but now it's always on my mind. For example, I am very attached to my cat, she is like a baby to me, and she's ten years old now, so I am terrified of losing her very soon even though she has no health problems and is just an average adult cat. I can't enjoy every day in the present because I'm so scared of death and loss. I've never really lost anyone, so I've never had this experience and it scares me to no end.

Chance22,

I hear you on so many levels.

The thing with me that I find surreal is the fact that death doesn't scare me.
i felt that i've stared it in the face and at times even welcomed it;simply because my quality of living is substandard,to say the least.

Know that no one will be prepared for the grim reaper when he comes because there will be no prior notice to an exact time or date.

Please enjoy the time you have with your cat and try to view it as quality time because there's no guarantee of quantity.

Cherish the time; even revel in it and at least try to be thankful for all the positive that has entered your life,while trying to place the negative in perspective.

Respectfully
Phoenix
