The Surprising Physical Signs of a Bad Relationship ...


Sometimes the signs of a bad relationship aren't just emotional. In fact, many people experience physical side effects and don't realize it until the symptoms disappear after the breakup. If you've been feeling run down and sick without actually being ill, take a long hard look at your relationship. If you're not happy, be on the look out for the physical signs of a bad relationship.

1. Weight Fluctuations

One of the more noticeable signs of a bad relationship is sudden weight fluctuations. Toxic relationships often make you feel insecure. As a result, you might start stress eating or trying extreme diets to feel better about yourself. Either way, friends and family will notice and hopefully ask you what's wrong. Weight fluctuations are normal with women, but sudden changes mixed with a not-so-happy relationship are a sign something's wrong.

I love Snowlion's comment about how this can be transferred to all types of relationships. Sometimes it takes these physical signs to show you the toll of a relationship emotionally. Wish I would have known this in my toxic relationship, which you can read all about on my blog
I couldn't agree more with this article. It's amazing how the body has a way of letting us know when something is wrong.

I agree with Ellie, I've been extremely happy and completely loved up throughout the past year and a half - that's down to the amazing guy I'm with :) I think I'm just a stressy person ;)
Great article. Toxic relationships can take a toll on the body, whether they be work, partner or family relationships. I'm now very careful about who I allow into my life and what I will tolerate, and it has made a world of difference in my health.
These DEFINTELY aren't true I have almost all of them and I'm in a very happy relationship, these are more likely symptoms of stress in general
