In following up with the last blog, I would like to add another factor that may well be involved with what is behind a lack of effort problem.
What often goes unacknowledged is the trauma that can come with a divorce or a break-up.
Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms typically start within three months of a traumatic event, and on occasion symptoms may not appear until years after the event.
While PTSD is usually associated with natural disasters, real physical danger, and war, it can be a side effect of a very stressful break-up.
Symptoms of intrusive memories may include: Flashbacks, reliving the traumatic event for minutes or even days at a time, upsetting dreams about the traumatic event.
