Our expert says:
Sometimes we get quite a way through life being optimistic to an unrealistic degree, and then when faced with this sort of major challenge, we may switch, inappropriately, from expecting everything to be fine, to being unduly gloomy and expecting something awful to happen again at any time.
Its good that you have managed to appear strong and positive when with him, but obviously this event, these fears that something so bad can happen to anyone you love ( or even to you ) is a shocking realization. It would be very well worthwhile both to talk this over with friends and family, and to seriously consider seeing a psychologist / counsellor to talk this throuhg, to help you to get this all back into perspective, so you can enjoy your time together. None of us know whether the time we will be able to spend with a loved one will be brief or long, but the most important thing which we CAN control, is to improve the quality of that time.
