I have separation anxiety from my wife, point blank. We’ve been married going on 2 years now, she’s my ultimate safe person. I feel like whenever she’s around, things are okay and I’m not alone. When she leaves for work, I’m home alone for a day off, etc. I’m restless, anxious, lonely and wasting a day off on edge worrying, filled with nerves to the point I’m nauseous. It’s especially bad when I’m at work, I work long hours the days I do work (13 hours) and the entire day I am useless, from the point of pulling into park until I leave. I don’t want to be there. I spend most of the time in the bathroom crying because I just don’t want to be there and want to come home to be with her and I’m so nervous I can’t function. I end up making myself sick! It’s terrible. I can’t stand feeling like this and I know I get on her nerves, because she feels smothered with never any time alone. I don’t want to feel like this and I know she doesn’t want to feel that way either. Please give me some advice and tips on how I can manage this.
