So, long story short, someone in my SO’s family is really really sick and he is going with his family overseas to see them. For 3 1/2 weeks. The trip is set in stone, the tickets are bought–it’s happening. He won’t leave until the end of the month, but I am already absoloutely terrified.
We’re in a semi-LDR already, and I’m used to that, but we’re in constant touch all the time, texting, phone calls, Facebook, etc, and we see each other on weekends. But now it’s going to be down to e-mails, maybe, and who knows how often we’ll talk.
I can have severe anxiety issues, and I’m really concerned about how this next month is going to be. Literally just thinking about all this makes my heart rate go up. I know that some people are much worse off with this kind of situation, and I feel awful about getting so freaked out and that I feel this way when someone who is very ill is involved, but it’s just the way I am; I’ve been a worrier my whole life.
I don’t really have that many close friends, and my own family is a good drive away, plus, I’m graduating this semester, so I can’t just jump ship and neglect everything. I just don’t know how I’m going to cope, that’s all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
