Daily Share – Fear That Life Is Too Short…

I am suffering from a deep fear/anxiety. It seems to have started when my husband turned 70 (I am 8 years younger). Very suddenly I realized that life is short. Life will soon end for us. What do we have left to look forward to if anything? I worry about what will become of us. How will I live without my husband if he should die first? We have no children and what will become of us in our old age? How will we take care of each other or more importantly the one who is left by themselves…who will be there for him/her? The anxiety has taken over my life. I’m awake at 3 a.m. with it on my mind and cannot shake it enough to enjoy the life we have left.
