Anxiety and divorce
Divorce and depression and anxiety can go hand in hand. It is likely that you will experience some degree of anxiety and/or depression during your divorce.
It is important to watch out for signs of anxiety, whether you are simply considering divorce, or going through the process. This is not to be confused with simply feeling uneasy, in the same way depression should not be confused with feeling sad. Many people do not understand how anxiety can affect people and can therefore be unsympathetic to those who suffer from it.
If you believe you are suffering from anxiety, please consult a professional. While a family lawyer may encounter situations such as these frequently, they are not qualified to help. Good mental health can make the process of divorce and separation so much easier to handle so getting help such as counselling or seeing your GP will be invaluable. It is not a sign of weakness but a sign that you are dealing with it.
