Try to accept a divorce in order to resolve problems quickly and avoid prolonged trauma.


In a marriage, divorce is a possibility that could happen at any time, be at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of the wedding where the couple has gone through decades together. No one can predict whether their marriage would last until death or end up in divorce.

For most people, divorce is something very terrible to cause prolonged trauma. They will experience anxiety, fear and self restlessness that makes it difficult to sleep, hard to concentrate and even suicide arise curiosity. This bad experience, according to a new study will lead to premature death.

Research on depression as a result of divorce

A study conducted by the University of Arizona, as published in Timesofindia on Tuesday (06/01/2015), showed that anxiety, fear, insomnia and other symptoms of depression in people who have recently experienced a divorce affect health, such as weak , lethargy and increased blood pressure.

David Sbarra, one of the members of the study added that after 10 weeks or more, depression can accumulate bad effects. He also said that the increase in high blood pressure should not be underestimated, especially for people who already have high blood pressure. Their study found that in each standard deviation increase in the sleep complaints resulted in approximately six-unit increase in systolic blood pressure.

Systolic blood pressure is the figure above which measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats, while diastolic blood pressure is the number under which measure the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats. Normally, human blood pressure ranged in number 120/80.

The lead author of the study, Kendra Krietsh suggests that people who have trouble sleeping constantly after divorce should seek the help of cognitive therapy, making adjustments to the daily schedule that encourage healthy sleep, or find a new way to relax before bed.

Its not something you get over in days, it takes years depending on the circumstances you left in....
