Good Morning Begarath
Welcome to HealingWell. This is Kitt.
I am sorry you are having problems. IMHO I feel your wife and you might both benefit from counseling, together or indivudual.
You posted "She is Asian, and has some real prejudices about anything approaching the word crazy." Please throw out the word crazy..........and use the word you see, anxiety. Many people still feel any mental disorder means your " crazy" Not true. But it does sound like both of you need some help through a difficult time. Convience her that she is not crazy nor is anyone else with anxiety.
I am sure you will get some wonderful advice here on HW. Stay with us and Welcome again.
