Dear Dr. Romance: I would like to get out of this anxiety

Dear Dr. Romance:

I'm a 70-yr old man who has been married more than forty years.  I read your article "Autonomy and Dependency" I feel like I've been in a codependency relationship the last fifteen years and have
developed anxiety & depression. My wife is a strong person and I'm a 'pleaser'. I've been on antidepressants for the last nine years and would like to get out of this anxiety but don't know if I can at this point. So do you have a recommendation for me? 

Dear Reader:
I'm glad you're recognizing you need some emotional help.  Therapy would be a great solution for your anxiety, your depression and even your marriage.  "Guidelines for Finding and Using Therapy Wisely" will help you find someone in your area. "Keys to a Happy Relationship"  and "Couples Can Cooperate for Success" will help you sort things out with your wife.  "Handling Anxiety Effectively" wil help you combat your anxiety in more effective ways.
