My husband has severe anxiety. When I found out I was pregnant he reacted very badly (the way he normally responds to anxiety is anger). Things calmed down but now that we are closer to the due date he is really shutting down emotionally. He is mad at me all the time, not supportive and whereas he used to always take care of business no matter if we were fighting or not lately he has refused to keep important appointments, have constructive conversations, etc. Of course somehow everything is my fault. I have tried to talk to him, message him, to no avail. I can't convince him to get help and he is now talking about divorce. How can I get through this? I know him really well, I know this is all fear-driven. This should be a happy time and it's awful.
