Our expert says:
Congratulations on making a very sensible decsion, to seek expert help for yourself, to better understand yourself and the efect you have on others, and, having sorted yourself out, to explore the practicality of healing the relationship with your wife. Actually, it is rare for any of us to find anyone who experiences us in the way we experience ourselves --- fortunately the differences between the effect we think we're producing and the effect we're actually having, and between the way we see ourselves and how others see us, are usually not large enough to cause problems, but it's not very uncommon for exactly that to happen. Good luck in your work with your new psychiatrist, and in working out your own problems and needs, and then being able to help with your wife's, if that's what then seems best.
