Divorce or Loss of Relationship Counseling
“A mediator once told me, ‘Divorce is one thing, but fear is a killer.’ As comforting as it
was to learn at the time that my severe anxiety was ‘normal,’ it wasn’t until my divorce
was final that I started to feel better, and even then, it took a while before I started to feel
like my old self again. I used to move through my day like a war victim suffering from
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which isn’t surprising given that divorce can be one of
the most stressful life events, second to the death of a spouse.”
And we now know that loss of love can manifest physiologically, so when you say your “heart is broken,” it’s actually true! When we are rejected there is actually a physical “heart brake.” Grief can cause cardiac stunning, which is a condition that causes the left ventricle of the heart to beat abnormally. The blood vessels to the heart also go into spasm, which can cause chest pain. Many individuals who have experienced grief from the loss of a loved one, report having had crushing chest pain. And sometimes, when we are not sorry to have lost the person, the loss of the dream, alone, can be devastating.
