Husband Anxious Since Purchasing $100,000 RV

Asked by on with 1 answer:

My husband is very anxious since we just purchased a new Recreational vehicle. He’s lost a great deal of weight. He doesn’t understand where the anxiety is coming from. He’s always enjoyed RVing. He’s ready to sell it without trying to adjust to it. We would lose a great deal of money if we sold it. Why is he so panicked about this?

Well it is too difficult to know for sure. The most important way to get to the bottom of this is to give your husband an opportunity to talk about his anxiety. It may simply need an opportunity for the two of you to walk and talk about all the changes and transitions that often accompany this stage of life. The RV may not be solely the source of anxiety, but rather the symbol of this transitional time in life. Give your husband a chance to explore things by talking about your plans.

Wishing you patience and peace,
