Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I'm sorry to hear about your problems. I can understand that you must be going through a very difficult time.

It is obvious that currently you are under a lot of mental stress and tension. You already have medical problems also like BP and high cholesterol. So, it is important that you keep your stress levels under control. Otherwise it would have adverse consequences not only on your mental health but also on your physical health as well.

Now, you mention that most of your stress is due to your wife's attitude and behaviour and that she is doing it willfully. In this situation, you must first keep yourself calm and composed in order to solve this problem better. If you become extremely affected, stressed out and depressed, then the problem will only be getting more complicated. You have to first accept the fact that this is her nature and that it is not possible to change it immediately. Once you are able to accept this, then you will slowly learn not to get so affected by her behaviour and hence not get so stressed out. I'm not saying that what she doing is right, but the fact is that she is if she is doing it purposely and you are left with no choice. So, from your side, the best option would be to learn how not to get affected by this as much as possible.

If you are so stressed out due to multiple problems - because of your wife, your work, financial problems, etc. then there is a risk that you can go into a major depression. So, my advise to you would be first stabilize and relax yourself. Once you are in a calm state of mind, then you will be in a better position to make the right decisions. Then you can dicuss with your wife and convince her to come for marriage counselling. Because this relationship involves two people, therapy must include both persons.

Right now, I would advise you to see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation. If necessary, you may need medication for a short duration to relax your mind and control your anxiety. You also need to go for regular counselling sessions to learn coping skills and stress management techniques.

Wish you all the best.
