Apeirophobia: Infinity

Apeirophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of infinity or living forever.  Some who suffer from this phobia fear the idea of living on forever in heaven.  They would prefer to know that they will completely stop existing after death.  There is a high risk of suicide with Apeirophobia.

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
