Johan, yes, it does feel dreadful, but of course dying is no solution to anything. Yes, counselling would probably help, and you WILL, with certainty, get over this disappointment, in time, ( and not a very great deal of time ). Part of what is probably making it worse for you is the suddenness with which this situation arose for you ), and the uncertainty. It's always harder to cope before one is sure what one is coping with.
maybe she has greater difficulty in facing commitment that you --- or she --- suspected, until the issue really arose, and maybe then she panicked. Maybe she has some more growing up to do, to be ready for a longer-term relationship. But this isn't a slur on you, and you probably didn't do anything wrong. Nasty disappointments like this do happen, and it takes us some time to get over the loss. A counsellor could help you to both work through this more thoroughly and usefully, and to potentally grow stronger from the experience.
