I am so full of fear. I would make a horrible Jedi trainee.
You sound committed to making this work
That is admirable and an indication of the love you have for her. Just stay healthy my friend. And please make sure your fear above does not become your reality. I can't imagine anyone being happy or developing good self esteem when they feel ( or are actually being treated) simply like a safe, comfortable, steady place to return to for a partner to use a safety net for ongoing adventures. The concept makes me a little ill actually although I'm sure that it is fine for many.
