Curveballs in Life - Sudden death

ADULT DEVELOPMENT AND AGING - Kiyoko Nelson

When your assumption and expectation of your life to be hit by major event such as sickness, death or changes in relationship. This event often occur without any warning. One of my colleague’s husband and a father of 10yrs old who were very healthy was diagnosed with level 4 cancer after he went in to see the doctor for his cold symptom. This event impacted psychological, socio-cultural and life-cycle forces. The life-cycle forces, which impacted most is that he will no longer around to see his daughter’s growth. It is difficult to say that if this event was influenced by certain specific conditions, however, he was stressed by his work situation, and diagnosed right after he changed this job.
