My husband has some anxiety issues. I am a fairly level person when it comes to emotions, while he swings up and down. The pregnancy is stressing him out a bit, and since I have been very tired and not feeling well lots of times, I haven’t been able to do as much around the house/in our business. A severe drop in my ability to participate in sexual activity has not helped either.
The last week or so this has gotten to be pretty bad. He is stressed, and lashing out one day (telling me all I do is sit around), even having panic attacks. Then, sweetly talking baby names and thanking me for doing all I can to help the next. He saw his doctor yesterday and was diagnosed with anxiety, prescribed Xanax.
Anyone else dealing with this? I understand he is stressed, and I want to be as helpful and supportive as possible. At the same time, I can’t be on an emotional roller coaster during this critical time. Especially when I am truly not physically up to doing much more.
This is such a wonderfully exciting, yet stressful and terrifying time. It is a difficult tightrope to walk sometimes.
