Our expert says:
Its often the case that we can cope remarkably well with individual challenges to our status quo, but when 2 or more ( and in your situation several more ) such events combine over a short space of time, this can overwhelm out coping capacity. This doesn't mean we're weak, or that we wont manage to cope, but they we're temporarily overwhelmed, and may deserve somme more support and help.
Sounds like, over-all, you've been coping remarkably and commendably well, but as though you may have been developing, understandably, an anxiety disorder which is complicaing things. Having experienced convincing events showing unexpected and alarming tragedies, you have focussed away from those, and on alternative suddent tragedies, which though highly unlikely to happen, still feel convicingly dangerous.
Do think of seeing a counsellor for a short time, to help refocus your concentration, and to regain control over this unhelpful degree of anxiety and sense of risk.
