NeedLove2013, I understand where you are at. I tried for years to get my husband back into therapy and back on meds. I finally called it quits. I knew at the end of the day, we were both better off. He is; now he is in therapy again. It hurts, though. I am not going back. I have that FU line, as a friend of mine puts it. Once crossed, it is a point of no return. Something can always rise like a phoenix from the ashes, but it will be some future time. He needs to be healthy for himself, not for me.

I wish this could be a new group. I have some useful advice as the spouse of someone with anxiety problems. But sometimes I could use advice from others.

Thank you for this. My GAD / HA has been having major effects on my relationship. The main problem is that its been bothering my SO when I talk about it, but he blows it off and acts like it has no effect. He explained to me recently that he was doing that to try and make me stop worrying. It was his way of trying to be sweet  :-*
