My boyfriend is away on a cadet course. I learnt that yesterday he nearly died. His plane was hit by lightning, he was taken to hospital as he couldnt move, speak or hear for a while but it was just sttic build up in his body. The only reason his plane did not blow up was because his co-pilot was using the radio at the time. His plane is in repairs at the moment so he cannot fly. He has had a mental breakdown with this near death experience. He is scared shitless to fly again. I am outraged, sad and happy. Weird mixture. Sad cause i nearly lost him, happy cause hes still here but i am outraged because he went through a rain cloud! arghh. The first thing i got taught in my flying lessons (i was also a air cadet) when in terms on the environment was never go through clouds. He is such a bastard. Its like the movies. When i see him next. I want to slap him, hug him tightly then kiss him senseless ¬¬ This is the "uncertainty principle" so my question is how do i comfort him? I am trying to be there for him. But learning your love, your other half nearly died is shocking and i am still trying to process it. He needs me to be strong for him. I am hiding my anger, my fear so he thinks i am strong, I dont know what to do. I feel like i am overrecting but i cant help feel this way How do i comfort someone after a near death experience?
