I found out to today that my fiance (28 years old) has Shingles along with his panic disorder and stomach problems. I am super worried because his stress is literally taking a huge toll on his body, while I am healthy as a horse. I feel very anxious about this and needed to vent to people that understand this type of thing. I've talked to him about exercising, but he probably won't. I told him that cardio and strength training are beneficial to the body, especially stress but I doubt he will do it. Honestly, I do not want to marry and have children with someone that is constantly battling stress related illnesses. That sounds harsh, but it is true. I love him and I do not know how to cope or talk him into exercising. He is on an anti-anxiety med, but it does not seem to work. I feel powerless, angry at him, resentful, and worried. Thanks for listening, any advice for this type of thing would be very much appreciated.
