It is said that a person can suffer from mental and psychological illnesses due to a love affair, or love itself is the problem, so he can not enter into a relationship due to fear, which causes a lot of psychological fatigue, according to Al-Masry Al-Youm.

And next, the most prominent 3 psychological illnesses associated with love, including borderline personality disorder, to which Yasmine Al-Khatib revealed that she suffers.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
This disease has several other complex symptoms besides abnormal behavior in love, associated with self-burnout and suicide, according to the Mayo Clinic website, including the following:

Fear of abandonment, which can lead you to take violent measures to avoid real or imagined separation or rejection.

An unstable pattern of emotional relationships, such as glorifying someone intensely and believing the next moment that they are negligent or cruel.

Rapid changes in a person’s self-esteem and identity, including changes in values ​​and goals, and the feeling that you are a bad person or that your existence is of no value.

Borderline personality disorder usually begins with the onset of adulthood. The condition appears to worsen in young adulthood and may gradually improve with age.

Many people with this disorder improve over time with treatment and can learn to lead a satisfying life.

Worship (de Clerambeau)
The exchange of love and emotional feelings for a person is a natural condition, but there is a pathological form of this love, that is, if it does not exist, except in the mind of one party, what the condition is which is expressed by the emotional manic syndrome. , which is also called the “De Climambo” syndrome, or syndrome “Intromnia”.

And the symptoms of “Antromnia” are that the patient feels obsessive and morbid love for another person, and thinks he loves him.

Concrete evidence indicates the opposite, but the patient does not leave an opportunity to prove to himself that he is right unless he follows it and develops it in himself, such as the belief that every action issued by the person who believes that he loves him, an implicit message that expresses his feelings towards him, and sometimes what he does matters falls. Exaggerated on the other, so he believes and declares to others that he is being chased by a person, and that he is the one who is evading him and his. aspirations, and he feels sorry for himself because he is tormented by his love and does not get the opportunity to express or declare this love, according to the medical website “Interoclink”.

Emotional manic syndrome affects women more than men, and this is due to the fact that women usually follow their emotions, and therefore can not control themselves or their feelings.

The symptoms of this disease are as follows:

. Constant communication with him through letters and calls in a hysterical way.

. Feeling of extreme jealousy.

. The delusion that this person is trying to communicate with him when in fact he is not doing anything unusual.

. Do not want to do any other activities except to observe this lover.

The French psychiatrist Gaïtan de Clarambeau said that there were a large number of patients who suffered from obsession with love towards King George V, and there was a patient who stood outside the palace for long hours and believed that he talk to her and communicate with her. by the movement of the curtains.

And treatment should start after the doctor has diagnosed the disease, to avoid complications, and the treatment is by taking medication in addition to psychological treatment sessions.

3. Philophobia
We find that on the contrary, there are those who are afraid of love to the point of illness, and completely refuse to enter into any emotional relationship, causing them to have other psychological problems such as loneliness, and this fear is called “philophobia”. . ”

And philophobia (the phobia of love), according to the health website Helithopia, is the fear of falling in love or any emotional attachment, which causes sufferers to distance themselves and escape from any emotional obligations.

Symptoms of the disease vary from person to person, but the common symptoms can be summarized as follows:

. Extreme anxiety about falling in love or having a relationship.

. Suppress feelings and emotions in humans as much as possible.

. Avoid places where lovers and couples can be, such as parks, cinemas, beaches and wedding parties.

. Elimination of the idea of ​​marriage from the patient’s dictionary.

. Prefer isolation from the outside world due to fear of falling in love.

There are physical signs that accompany the illness, such as: rapid heartbeat, breathing problems, sweating, nausea, and it can even fade when you are facing an emotional or romantic situation.
