This Rings to True for me

"...people who are "limbically connected" have a very powerful bond, and I believe this phenomenon may be one of the major reasons women cannot leave abusive men. They have had their children with these men, shared their beds and their homes with them. To break that bond, which is at the core of their brain, causes a severe rupture that can make the woman feel fragmented, as if she were not quite whole without the man. She may be plagued by sleep and appetite problems, depression, irritability and social isolation."

-Daniel G. Amen, MD Change your Brain Change your Life, p 46
