“I was not able to put my feelings into words; I lost ‘my story’. I did not even know what I was feeling let alone that I was able to share it with you. I am literally afraid of dying and this

“About that [fear of death] you cannot talk in the human world, there you have to adjust to the common denominator. Here on my blog I write what I feel and how it storms in my head. I am literally scared to death! And if you don’t want to read about that, then you won’t come to my blog anymore?!”
