How a job loss affects health
The stress of dealing with unemployment
Losing a job is a traumatic experience, whether the dismissal has been due to cuts or job performance.
Losing the job suddenly, makes you to experiment a whole range of emotions, the shock that suffers somebody that lost a job can be comparable to the loss of a loved one.
Many people experience a variety of symptoms including shock, confusion, anger, denial and depression.
The person who has lost his job can be under enormous pressure by various factors. The main concern is usually the danger of running out of resources by not having any income.
There are many people who unfortunately does not receive unemployment benefits or even a minimal help, this of course causes to have to tease out the little savings that were saved, and just because these savings and money goes so easy, nerves and worries about the situation is accentuated increasingly seeing that the everything is getting worse day by day and expectations of finding a job is slowly evaporating.
Then, repeat this every day, month after month, they start to despair . And when they do not know to do with despair and anger, not know exactly who rebel against and demand what they want, it is then that begin to save this inner rustration, which sooner or later will become depression .
The feeling of being useless and have the moral on the ground, spend hours and days doing nothing, the impotence of going to hundreds of places looking for a job, send resumes to companies and do anything possible to get a job and receive the typical "we'll get back to you" or "not the profile we are looking for" makes them to feel more bad.
Unemployment can soon become a nightmare for the sufferer and for those around him...his family.
Depression is repressed anger, often caused because although having a degree, many years of experience and service, tireless desire to work and never give up overtime, they end up jobless, with heart problems and without pension.
Heart attacks are significantly more common (27 %) among the unemployed recently, regardless of the type of occupation they had.
And the effect is cumulative: the chances of having a heart attack increases 63 % among those who have lost four or more jobs .
