I don't think living at home with your mom is necessarily unhealthy as long as you are carrying your weight financially and with doing things around the house. I think it's wonderful that you are so close. My son is your age and still lives at home though he pays some bills and supports himself. He suffers from depression and I am bipolar and my husband is perfectly emotionally healthy so my son and I are good support for each other.
As far as your mom not being around, 55 isn't very old. Enjoy each day with her - none of us can count on tomorrow!
Yes, you probably do need to relax but it's easier said than done.
Hey I think your very lucky to have a Mom and a great relationship. Do you depend on her for financial support or just emotional support? You don't have to answer that if it is to personal.
Age does not dictate where you live or who you depend on to be there for you so please know how lucky you are to have each other.

I don't think there is anything wrong with living with your mother at 27, I lived with mine for a while when I was 29 and getting over a bad marriage. She is my best friend and my best support and I share your fear (about our mum's dying). But it WILL happen one day and WE WIILL cope. I just try and focus on how precious she is to me now, and I try not to think too far ahead. I'm glad you have a supportive boyfriend, and remember, you have your HW family as well.
