You might take a little comfort, Gzus, from this thought, one of Mark Twain's I think: "I never much minded not existing before I was born."

I was as terrified of nothingness as you describe as a young man, but it doesn't bother me much anymore. Living forever to watch all your children, grandchildren, and friends die is a much scarier concept.
