Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Dear friend,

It seems that you have no issues about splitting up with your husband. However, worrying about his untimely death is a real and legitimate issue and you deserve to be protected and reassured.

You are suffering from some anxiety over this issue, and it is something that you should discuss directly with your husband. The best approach would not be like a business meeting but when you are sitting or lying next to him, holding him tightly and whispering your fears to him.

Let him feel your heart and your concerns. Let him hear the emotional aspect of it rather than just the intellectual (monetary) aspect. You don't want to lose him, and then lose your security/home.

Ask him to make it right and make you feel safe.

Put in these terms he should be very happy to comply and give you the legal protection that you need and require and merit.

I shall keep you in my prayers.

Warm regards,

Elliott, MAE, LPCC, NCC, CCMHC
