  1. I don’t want to step over the line, but I would suggest that Gary taking his wife to a psychiatrist may be an important step. There may be an unknown trauma in her past or even a personality disorder or developmental disorder that would give some direction to treatment or therapy they haven’t had before. I know it’s just a wild guess based on a short phone call, but his description of her physical issues could just as easily be sensory issues as emotional ones, and her only relating to family or to friends who stick to activities she is comfortable with and hiding from others, such as at the marriage weekend they went to, trigger a question of Asperger’s/autism for me. Either way, the amount of time and effort that has been put into the situation with no results seem to warrant going beyond therapy only and getting a full evaluation.

  2. Trish, I agree with your comment, I too, suggest he take his wife to a psychiatrist, something is beneath the surface that needs to come forth and soon because this has been going on for far too long. And going back and forth and arguing the point will not help. I’ll be praying for Gary, his wife, and family.
