    Why does a broken heart leaves one emotionally drained and also physically exhausted?

    Just finished watching an episode of 'The bachelorrette' and this question just came to mind.

    It is energy that a person have totally invested in that relationship and now that energy have to be redirected to somewhere else and the changeover for that energy direction will leave behind results that will physically and emotionally have an effect on the human emotional and physical body.

    A broken heart is like a living death.  The one we loved was part of every aspect of our lives from work to family.  Most likley they know our secerts and our fears.  When the relationship ends it is as if a part of us is dying.  It will never be the same....either because of how we WANTED our loves and lives to be or because how it actually was.  A death is always draining.  There are 9 steps on the greiving process.  These can be applied to the death of a relationship.

    Whether one is elated or depressed it affects them physically.
    During the "infatuation phase" of a new relationship it's not uncommon to be able to work all day, go to the gym, come home and shower, then go out to dinner, dancing, have sex all night, and get up early to start the next day. It's as though "new love" give us a physical energy boost. A couple years later into the relationship neither person is up for doing that much activity in one night. The excitment or high that use to be there along with the "excitement and anticipation" of seeing them fades.

    Heartache is usually the result of "shock" that it's over.
    You are caught off guard. Something you were once "sure of" has been pulled from underneath you. Your mind races and you wonder how could you have not seen it coming. You can't sleep. There's a little bit of an "identity crisis" especially if you have been known as part of a "couple". Depression can lead to not eating or over eating, not sleeping or refusing to get out of bed.

    Our thoughts and emotions have a direct effect on our physical well being. Imagine getting fired from your job during the day and then winning the lottery that night. You'd go from depression to elation in the same 24 hour period based upon "words" you were told.

    @ dashingscorpio, ibitpoyam, AMBASSADOR BUTLER - Whoa! So right, so true.
    We as humans have been given such emotional tendencies that allows us to feel acceptance and rejection, love and heartbreak in such a way that no other species can. When pain touches our heart, it touches our entire frame (from the crown of our head to the sole of our feet), and thus we are left both emotionally and physically drained.
    And yet there are so called humans (I call them animals) who are ever willing to explore that and inflict pain on others.
    Thank you all for your intellectual responses.
