I am terrified my parents will die even though they are in good health

DEAR DEIDRE: THOUGH my parents are healthy at the moment, I’m terrified they will die.

They had me quite late and I know they won’t be around for ever. I’m 18 while they are in their sixties.

Recently my uncle died and he was only a few years older than my dad.

Since then, I can’t stop worrying about this.

I really love my parents and the thought of them not being around is making me anxious.
