​Breaking up is hard to do

Breaking up with someone you love/loved is emotionally similar to having your arm ripped off. It can feel like the end of the world – alternatively you may feel numb or dazed. Commonly your whole body tends to go on high alert flooding your system with stress hormones.

Common symptoms include:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Hypervigilance – loud noises scare you
  • Can’t eat
  • Can’t stop eating (normally junk food)
  • Risk taking
  • Self Medicating drugs, alcohol, sex
  • Numb – no feelings
  • Hugely emotional/thoughts of self hatred/blame
  • Can’t concentrate
  • Weight loss
  • Tired all the time
  • Feeling depressed/angry/suicidal

Getting some counselling support will help you get through this time a lot faster and can be a powerful learning experience that equips you for your future.
