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

And then, the 3 most prominent psychological illnesses related to love, including borderline personality disorder, from which Yasmine Al-Khatib discovered she suffers.

1. Borderline personality disorder (BPD)
The disease has several other complex symptoms in addition to abnormal lovemaking, related to self-flagellation and suicide, according to the Mayo Clinic website, including the following:

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

An unstable pattern of emotional relationships, such as intensely praising someone and the next moment believing he or she is negligent or cruel.

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

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

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

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

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

Concrete evidence shows the opposite, but the patient does not leave an opportunity to prove to himself that he is right if he does not follow it and develops it in himself, such as. the belief that every action done by the person who believes he loves her is. an implied message that expresses his feelings towards him, and sometimes what he does with interest falls, exaggerated on the other hand, so that he believes and declares to others that he is being followed by a person and that he is the one who avoids him and his. follows, and he feels sorry for him because his love torments him and he does not find the opportunity to express or declare this love, according to the medical site “Interoclink”.

Emotional mania syndrome affects more women than men and this is due to the fact that women usually pursue their emotions and therefore can not restrain themselves or their feelings.

The symptoms of this disease are as follows:

. Constant communication with him through letters and phone calls hysterically.

. Feeling of extreme jealousy.

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

. Not wanting to do any activity other than watching this lover.

French psychiatrist Gaïtan de Clarambeau stated that he had a large number of patients suffering from the obsession of love for King George V, and was a patient who stood outside the palace for long hours, believing that he was talking to her and communicating with her. through the movement of the curtains.

And treatment should begin after the doctor diagnoses the disease, to avoid complications, and treatment is taking medications 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, which makes them have other psychological problems like loneliness, and this fear is called “philophobia”. . ”

And philophobia (love phobia), according to health site Helithopia, is the fear of falling in love or some emotional connection, which makes the sick seek distance and escape from any emotional engagement.

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

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

. Suppress the feelings and emotions within the person as much as possible.

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

. Eliminate the idea of ​​marriage from the patient’s vocabulary.

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

There are physical signs that accompany the disease, such as: rapid heartbeat, breathing problems, sweating, nausea, and may even faint when faced with an emotional or romantic situation.
