Ever since my son was born I have had these crazy, irrational fears that I am going to lose him and his father in some tragedy. Every time I hear about a child on the news or see even part of a movie where there's death in it, I just cry, and I'm up all night with this fear that I only have a few years with them. I'm terrified that something awful is going to happen. I know that I can't keep thinking in fear, that I have to be grateful for what we have and feel joy and peace and blah blah blah, but I can't help it. Considering that I always had the same fear about my mother, who was just diagnosed with cancer, I was just wondering: Is this a normal "mommy" thing? To be so afraid that something tragic will happen that you can't help but cry at the thought? How do you calm yourself??Answer Question
