Love-sickness is another condition of Pseudo-Love. For Pseudo-Love has an intense possessiveness to it that can become a kind of love-sickness. The Greeks called this love-sickness theia mania, or love madness. Greek physician Galen said theia mania can produce hormonal imbalance and bodily sickness. Love-sickness has emotional, psychological, and physical components that combine to decrease a person’s energy and a true mind-body sickness ensues. Love-sickness can include erotomania where a person believes another person seriously loves them even if they don’t. Love sickness is about living for another’s acceptance and emotionally dying from another’s rejection. Love-sickness is excessive (philocaptive) and obsessive (compulsive). Excessive and obsessive love is unhealthy love that is painful, stormy, and pathological. Excessive and obsessive love really involves the object of love and not love. Neale Walsch (2004) said the four symptoms of obsessive love are: 1.) preoccupation (addictive), 2.) episodes of melancholy, 3.) episodes of rapture, and 4.) instability of mood. Theia mania is frequently the subject of poets, artists, painters, philosophers, novelists, movies, and music. In the novel Of Human Bondage, W. Somerset Maughan gives an account of Philip who has an unhealthy love obsession with the ungrateful and narcissistic Mildrew. She manipulates his need for love for her own selfish wants. In Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Nietzsche said, “there is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.” (1800’s) Actually, all types of romantic love are bittersweet since all levels of love have ups and downs? The topic of love-sickness is open to discussion and debate.
