| | can't get rid of anxiety issues about wife
My wife and I have been married 11yrs. About a year ago my wife started talking to a guyfriend about our issues. The conversations turned into more then friendly conversations. I found out about it, we had our healing period, she stopped talking to him, and everything seemed fine until about a month ago. I started having anxiety attacks when she went to a friends house for the weekend. I kept feeling like she was withdrawn from me and something was wrong. I was right. For awhile now she has felt confused about who she is, she says it dosen't have anything to do with me. She always says that we are fine. We have discussed each others faults and what we need to do to strengthen our marriage. I am now dealing with anxiety on and off. What triggers my anxiety? What she is saying on facebook, what she is saying/texting to her friend, when she gets upset I think it has to do with me. I am always searching for reassurance from her, wether its a kiss, hug, cuddling in bed. Whenever she dosen't initial a kiss or sit and cuddle with me on the couch the anxiety starts to kick in. I'm starting to feal like a charity case. I try to keep things to a minimum and not overburden her with these thoughts or actions. Thats why I thought this might be a good helpline for me. Any thoughts?
