I'm at a real loss for direction right now, and I don't know where to turn. I joined this site and community yesterday and am finally getting around to starting my first discussion. I'm sorry it has to be like this, but I would be lying to say that I'm fine and everything is perfect. I just can't communicate with my wife anymore. I have these panic attacks and periods of extremely high anxiety, and she expects me to deal with it like there is nothing wrong. She'll even say things like "I have stress too" in response to what I am going through. I don't think I'm being selfish for wanting a little understanding from her. I guess, I just don't know what to do next. If nothing else mattered, I suppose I would pack the most important necessities into a backpack and retreat to some tropical island in the middle of the ocean where no one and nothing could bother me. But, in truth, I would be bothered by the loss of love and of family. What to do?
