Based on your past history, he is likely much more sensitive and fearful of things going back to where they were.
Sometimes a small hiccup can feel like the end of the world because the feelings that were there when things were really bad come back full force. It's not until we get past the small hiccup that we realize that things are much better than before. Those old feelings can be scary.
