It sounds like you are having an anxiety attack. Your wife may be a trigger, and other things may be triggering it too. I have suffered from generalized anxiety disorder since I was 8, so prior to getting the right medication, I used other methods to calm myself.
Lie down on a comfortable couch, or on your bed. Put on some soft music, or turn the t.v. on low. Start to breathe slowly. Focus on the background noise a bit, but not too much. Start saying "relax" over and over. Don't let your mind wander elsewhere.
If you can, please see a doctor ASAP. You may need some medication for treating anxiety.
I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.
You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
