Default Irrational fear of my mom choking to death

My mom’s husband is taking a trip to FL soon which means she’ll be alone. I have this crazy fear that she’s going to choke on her meds or food. I don’t know where it comes from because she’s never choked before but I’m really terrified. I live alone myself so I guess people could worry about me too. Any reassurance is appreciated.
Yes, horrible things do happen. Happiness, in the face of all that, that's not the goal. Feeling the horrible, and knowing you're not gonna die from those feelings, that's the point.

I am sure she will be just fine.

as long as she eats slowly, as long as she eats in a good position (like sitting down, rather than, rather than lying down or moving) and as long as she drinks plenty, she will be okay.

but I am sure these are things she knows all ready, and you too

and you could always phone her as well
