Communication Struggles

by Mike

I am beyond my wits at this point. My wife has massive anxiety and has so many triggers. I’m trying my best to avoid those triggers so she can improve herself. I’ve always been one to hide my emotions, feelings, etc, and take care of everyone around me. Well, my wife doesn’t like that. She wants me to talk about everything which is super hard. So, I try, and when I ask about her feelings, it always becomes an argument that gets no where because I’m finally showing emotions and feelings like she asked and I end up apologizing for something I had no idea I even did. And the vicious cycle continues. :( idk what to do anymore
