Ensure you watch these warning signs and keep yourself safe
- It is completely normal and appropriate to feel extreme sadness and a complete loss of control as the result of a bad break up or divorce. It is normal to feel hopeless and helpless. It is normal to feel you want to withdraw from life to grieve and get over your lost relationship. It is also normal to feel numb and to wonder about dying, but only if this is a passing thought.
- If you’re dwelling on morbid thoughts, you need to address them. Below are the warning signs to watch out for. Contact your doctor, family or the naked divorce team if you suspect you’re moving into dangerous territory.
- www.suicide.org advises a full list of warning signs that you can review. We have re-written this list as we believe the behaviours described should be red-flagged only if they are above and beyond what is reasonable for someone dealing with divorce.
- Please review the warning signs below carefully and ensure that when you check in with your loved ones, that they are aware of you keeping these warning signs in mind. If you are concerned that you need different kind of mental health support, please keep yourself safe and seek this support immediately. Contact the team at Naked Divorce and we will issue a full refund.
Normal feelings that should be monitored if they continue longer than 7 weeks
- Feeling hopeless and helpless.
- Experiencing dramatic mood changes.
- Exhibiting an extreme change in personality.
- Losing interest in most activities.
- Experiencing an extreme change in sleeping habits.
- Experiencing an extreme change in eating habits.
- Performing poorly at work.
If you experience these symptoms, please seek help from your doctor or a qualified psychiatric professional immediately
- Appearing depressed most of the time.
- Talking or writing about death or suicide OR planning your death.
- Withdrawing completely from family and friends for an extended period.
- Feeling trapped; feeling there is no way out of the situation.
- Abusing drugs or alcohol.
- Exhibiting a change in personality – above what is reasonable for your divorce.
