Extreme apprehension is a common symptom of divorce stress syndrome. Both during and after a divorce, your fear levels can shoot to intense heights of confusion or brain fog. You may feel unbalanced or lost, and your body may react by kicking your “fight or flight” mode, a common symptom of anxiety.
This anxiety can lead to both physical and psychological difficulties.
