Hello Tinker... Welcome to Anxiety Zone... My name is Chuck, and I am one of the Global Moderators here on the site.

Tinker, unfortunately, the old adage of leading a horse to water, yet not being able to get him to drink, applies here. Regardless of the problem, be it GAD, alcoholism, diabetes , or what-have-you, a person can't begin the road to healing if they refuse to take the steps, and no one can do it for them. Many relationships have ended-up on the rocks before a person has moved from the denial stage, and sot help.
You might consider pointing out the Anxiety Zone site to your wife. Anxiety disorders are treatable, with treatment often times including medication and therapy. But to me, the greatest treatment to anything is our own attitude to what is ailing us. A positive attitude, positive outlook on one's future, is a miracle in itself.
You can't change your spouse, Tinker, but you can change yourself, so don't forget to take care of yourself.
Again, welcome to Anxiety Zone. The very best to you, Tinker!... Chuck
