Husband with health anxiety

by Alicia ()

My poor husband is engulfed in the strong grip of health anxiety and it is destroying all of our lives. We have three little boys and were recently blessed with a little girl. The last six months of the pregnancy I had no support from him and my grandmother was sick and dying. She passed three weeks before our daughter arrived and I had many complications at the end of the pregnancy. It feels like he is drifting farther from us as his health anxiety has really ramped up under this stress and it scares me. I see how it is affecting our children and I feel the tension between us increasing. I know that God has a plan for us and wants this family together. God just blessed my husband with a promotion at work and a significant pay raise and he can’t break free to focus on the good. He cycles from one health scare – cancer in different areas- to another despite clear screenings. Please pray for us. Pray for his healing and the restoration of our family. Pray for his contentment and peace and that he can rest. He has tried meds and doctors with no success. I am at my wits end as I struggle to be the rock for everyone, grieve and deal with post partum. I pray that my husband would surrender his health worries to God and stop obsessing over them so he can live in each day and live each day out in a way that gives God the glory.

I know he has blessed us beyond measure and beyond what we deserve. I want us all to be grateful and enjoying the moments he gives us.
