People going through divorce can suffer physical aches, pains and skin conditions, a marital therapist has claimed.
She said that “nearly all” her clients suffer from depression or low moods, along with disrupted sleeping patterns and stress. But for some it is more serious still.
“Around 60 per cent of people also suffer physical symptoms, which might include migraine, eczema or back trouble”.
She attributes the discomfort to stress-related tension in the person’s muscles. Even if the marriage coming to an end was an unhappy one, symptoms may still occur, Friedman notes.
“The marriage may have been unhappy, but it’s still a loss you have to deal with.”
