Amante2003 Posted September 22, 2008 Share Posted September 22, 2008 I have always been a very sensitive guy, and dealing with emotionally taxing things stresses me out. Since being married, my wife and I have encountered many of these emotionally taxing events. I typically can't handle them and my wife is left to endure the burden, while I sit on the sidelines. Needless to say, this is very trying on our relationship and I am aware I need to become more emotionally strong and be able to take on stress and not buckle in a panic attack. Basically, I need help "manning up". I've been to a counselor, and she's told me to do breathing exercises, but that only solves part of my problem. I still get anxious and panicky when tough situations arise, and my wife is getting tired of propping me back up after each break down (shes been doing that for 3 years now and we are only 23!!).
