From The Telegraph, Neuroscientist Paralyzed By Love:
Matt Frerking, 39, from Portland, Oregon, is left immobile if he even has a romantic thought or sees others showing displays of affection….
He is unable to put his arm around Trish, his wife of 13 years, and suffers attacks on anniversaries. He can suffer attacks several times a day…
“Holding hands in public is something that we can do for a few seconds at most, and that’s about it,” Mr Frerking said….
Attacks are also triggered by trailers for romantic films ….
Who am I to argue with science?
