Sex addiction counseling is not just for the sex addict.  A spouse who discovers her spouse has had secret sexual behaviors can be very overwhelmed.  One spouse described her discovery as like being broad-sided in an auto-accident.  She was in shock, unsure of the damage, but felt numb with this information.  Experts in Betrayal have listed the 11 common symptoms of betrayal trauma below:

  1. Overwhelming emotions
  2. Unusual/uncharacteristic behaviors
  3. Sleep difficulties– too much/too little
  4. ‘Brain fog’– inability to think clearly, memory loss, getting lost easily
  5. Eating problems– inability to eat/overeating
  6. Anxiety/panic attacks
  7. Depression
  8. Rumination/obsessive thoughts and intrusive images/flashbacks
  9. Difficulty caring for self or others
  10. Isolation
  11. Obsessive need to check the internet history, GPS, email accounts, text message history, etc. for signs that the danger is still present
