I'm not going to say there is nothing wrong with you but i have chronic anxiety and have it under control with Venlafaxine and a fantastic GP.

Before i had it under control i suffered an almost intense feeling there was something wrong with me or that my wife did not love me. It became an obsession just like what you have and it destroys you. Please listen to your GP, discuss medication and self control. It works

Good luck
