Happiness begets anxiety

Apart from those delirious feelings, I feel immensely fortunate tonight; to have had the company of some very cordial friends. Such are the people who make you wish that life will never have to end, or that in the next life, their exact persons would be beside you as they now are. With immense joy comes also, quite without delay, immense anxiety. Then, you start to worry about everything; you worry that some disease might suddenly come out of dormancy and debilitate you, or cause you to lose your memories; you worry that while outside, something might suddenly strike you dead; you worry that those things might happen to those you love and in an instant, such an important well is robbed from your life.
