In the past six months or so my husband's anxiety has gotten worse. His Dr. weaned him off Xanax around that time and he now just has Ativan a couple times a day as needed and Buspar in the morning for depression. It's obvious his anxiety is much worse, and it's embarrassing for him. Take today for instance, my daughter and 2 young grandkids came to visit. He got so anxious he had to go shut himself in the bedroom. Now he feels terrible. I am worried he's going to isolate himself more and more.
As a spouse, what are the best things I can do and/or say to help? Sure, I can advocate for him at his Dr. Appointments, and I do, and it helps that I have a degree in Psychology and in Chemical Dependency, but I really a pretty much at a loss when it comes to dealing with this situation. I want to help, not say or do the wrong thing...
Thanks in advance,
