i have the same problem with my wife.. she is my safety net and i will get alot of separation anxiety if she is gone for long amounts of time usually for more then a day at a time..
i start to worry and this is exacty what goes racing through my mind..
"what if" i have a panic attack and no one is around to talk to?... is she ok? oh no what if she gets into an accident and i am not around to help.. what if someone tried to do her harm and i am not around to stop them..
these racing anxious thoughts really annoy me because i know better then to give into them but i do alot of the time anyway.. all i have thought of so far to help with this is have her give me a call every now and then so i know she is ok.. but i think that is just reinforcing the habbit of worring over nothing.. and whats really strange is i could leave for days and feel no separation anxiety because i know she is safe at home.. makes no sense
