    Alzheimer's. Everyone grows old, loses physical ability and regular memory doesn't work as fast. But to lose your identity and not know  who you are or recognize anyone around you, that is a living Hell. I hope I die before this happens.

    Other than any death, or other than our own death? My worst fear is outliving my children. Alternatively, to live with severe dementia, or in a vegetative state where I am unable to function as the person that I know myself to be.

    I never think about dying...I suppose if I did it would scare me ...
    My worse fear is flying in a plane....I have never ever flown but I guess its because I dont like heights that flying scares me and of course I would have no control over my destiny  in a plane ...as I mentioned heights scare me and I am also  really really scared of snakes.

    Death for myself, I do not fear. I am not afraid to die, I am afraid of how I am going to die. That is my fear other than death.

    Wow.  The Alzheimer's answer is pretty powerful.  I wasn't even thinking about that before sifting through some of the answers.  That is intense and depressing to think about.  I second Flora's answer.

    I don't fear death at all. I fear to some degree the act of dying. I think my greatest fear in life is my sons and grandchildren dying without accepting Jesus as their Savior. I want to see them in eternity.

    I have to agree that Alzheimer's scares me. One fear is also that something bad could happen to my children.

    I don't fear death. I fear being blind and not being able see the beauty of nature or what I'm being fed. I also fear being alone in my old age.

    Being alone. Without other people is my worst fear. I spend hours alone in highschool without others and hate the feeling.
    Alzheimers can be stalled and never happen if you take the right actions. Ask any college student who has taken life span/growth and developmental psychology.

    My greatest fear is that I will die full of regrets...

    - Regrets of not having told the people I care about, how much I care about them.
    - Regrets of not having asked people for forgiveness or not having forgiven people for things that eventually do not matter.
    - Regrets that I did a lot of things none of which were meaningful in the end.
    - Regrets that I did not achieve anything that I would love to achieve.
    - Regrets that I lived a wasteful life, devoid of any real meaning, without making any impact even in the smallest ways.

    That is my greatest fear. I want to die a life well lived, which will give me satisfaction in the end - It will make me die with a smile on my face and will make me look forward to a well deserved peaceful passing away moment - regrets is something I do not want.

    My greatest fear is that I don't matter. I want to be able to make a difference. I want to fulfill God's purpose for me. It would be horrible to live a life devoid of meaning and to die without making the slighest impact.

    I have lot of fear in my Life,  Never achieve my Goals, My Dreams, and Specially my most-uttermost-ultimate fear is to be alone and lost my Family. i am only a teenager, I am 17 and if all of you aware to the teenager nowadays, some of us or lot of us committing suicide because of Depression. and it really bother me that maybe someday i might do this too. but, i am Hoping and Praying that this will stop and the only person that help us a lot is our Parents/Family. this is the reason why they are my worst fear to let them disappear and to let me alone. i am afraid to be alone, i will do everything for them just to stay with me. this is my worst fear, I am not afraid to Death i am afraid that while i am still alive i'll never make my Family proud of me or i'll never say Sorry nor I Love You. And this is also the reason why i don't want to lost them with out even saying or expressing my true Love for them sad
