Just saying hi. I don’t have anxiety, but my husband does. I need a place to unload and hopefully learn more as well. There are no support forums for spouses, so I was hoping to start a thread for that if that’s ok.
I will try to get my spouse to reply here as she's been dealing with my anxiety for the entirety of our 35 years of marriage. She has been absolutely accepting and caring about my anxiety disorder, very supportive and could be helpful for you. I can tell you that one of her suggestions will be to not let your husband's condition dictate your social life and that you have to be comfortable saying, "I'm sorry, my husband couldn't join us as he has an anxiety disorder and this is not a good day for him.".
