|my wife was diagnosised with gad about 5 years ago and has tried various medications and feels that the side effects from the medications are worse than living with the anxiety. My question is does gad lead to depression and possible bi-polar disorder. At the moment she is cruising along at a good level, but about 3 months back she scared me and I really thought she was slipping into a depressed state.
My marriage is basicially on the line, and though I have vowed to do whatever it takes to make it work, she has no emotion what so ever and wants to remain in the marriage for the kids and just live together? I can't see any future in this and am trying to find out if hear mental state is on the level. A loveless marriage is the most devasting thing I have ever had to encounter in my life and will only continue if I can assume that her mental state is in question an a therapist maybe able to help the situation.We tried marriage counseling but she did not wish to participate in the activities so we stopped going.
In a nut shell she has become a person I no longer know and I am trying to find the woman I married in there somewhere.
Thanks for letting me vent.
