Experiencing heartbreak is normal, and if we’re totally honest with ourselves, it often makes us a stronger and better person in the end. Usually a few days hidden under a duvet and a mega sized chocolate bar does just the trick, but for some suffers the pain can turn into a physical and mental strain.
Sufferers of love addiction can’t get use the standard break-up routine as a cure. For them, a break – up can trigger physical withdrawal symptoms such as depression, weight loss and tremors. While some people may think this is just an excuse, it’s increasingly being recognised as an illness with diagnosis on the rise.
