So, I'm trying to figure out how to cope with my anxiety in a different more affective way. I have severe anxiety and it has been worse in the past 7 months. Usually I just talk things out with someone and once I let my thought out of my head I am able to breath in tranquility. I'm having issues doing that these days because my husband can't listen to me all day every day. It's taking a toll on our marriage. To him, a normal-ish guy that has to listen to most of my thoughts gets extremely frustrated and annoyed. Most of my thoughts to him are obsessive and seem to be over exaggerating certain situations. I freak out over small things. He doesn't understand it's my anxiety and not me being a girl. I probably sound whiny and annoying. Some times it's easier for him to tell me to get over it and move on. It hurts me even more. In turn makes me even more anxious. I need to figure out a new way of life here before it get's worse. How do some of you that are in relationships deal with your anxiety? When your in the moment and can't just read a book or start meditating what do you do?

Hey there my name is Kayley, I too have anxiety and am married. It's definitely difficult to deal with for them and for us. I used to try to talk everything out with my husband but it's just too much strain. I usually write and get it out of my head, that way I can think more clearly. If I'm not able to do that I really just have to look inside and tell myself that it's going to be okay-I know it's so cliche. Try find something that you like to do and makes you happy to distract yourself, sometimes that helps to. Hope you are well. K
