I've just realised/been diagnosed with anxiety but have probably been feeling stressed for years without letting it come to a head. I'm therefore really not sure how/if I approach my wife/other people with it. I think I've always been one of the more relaxed and strong people I know (on the surface at any rate) and now it feels like I've been living a lie to myself and to her. I'm really scared of letting her and my child (plus one on the way) down and letting her see the real, scared, worrying, weak me. Have you told people especially your other halves?? If so how has it gone? It not how has it gone?? I know that I should but they're the only important thing in this world to me.
