Ep 11: Anxiety Part II with Richard

Welcome to the second episode in the two part series on anxiety. Last week, I told my story with anxiety, how it shows up for me, and how I have navigated it. Today, I‘m bringing on my husband Richard who had a different view of anxiety until he experienced it himself. He is telling his story and how anxiety has impacted him and our marriage.

  • Richard’s viewpoint on anxiety and his experiences with it growing up [3:20]
  • The anxiety attack that came out of the blue for Richard and changed everything  [6:25]
  • Richard talks about his struggle with depression, trying to treat the anxiety with natural methods, and the moment the fog lifted for him [10:01]
  • His biggest takeaway after experiencing anxiety himself and how we support each other in our marriage [18:58]
  • How his viewpoint on anxiety has changed and his renewed perspective on life in general [21:32]

I hope our stories can help you or perhaps your spouse if you’re going through something similar. If you haven’t experienced anxiety, I hope these episodes give you a deeper compassion and understanding for those who do.
