I was reading this article about TV fans distressed without their favourite shows. I even found an Italian article which quotes the same study calling the distress "Syndrome of the last episode". I started thinking, "Isn't that I 've been so stressed and distressed lately  just because of that"? I may be, yes. 

First they wrapped-up Vicar of Dibley and I am here,  fingers crossed,  hoping they'll decide to shoot at least another special with Geraldine and her gorgeous husband, Harry Jasper Kennedy.

Then,  BBC screenwriters decided to kill Robin Hood,  the show as well as its protagonist, but worse than everything else , the programme ended with the loss of my favourite character, the sexiest baddie in a prime time TV series, Guy of Gisborne.

As if it wasn't enough, they gave us a handsome, tough, brave hero to dream about for a while  -and many of us managed even to ignore or bear the stereotypes and the scripts in this series for the love and admiration they had for its incredible protagonist - but then everything came to an end: John Porter will not be the hero of series two in Strike Back!

Traumatic, very painful contribute to my distress came from the end of Spooks story-line dedicated to Lucas North. He not only died but was first turned into a traitor, a fake, a deranged soul by the writers. He was a great character, an intriguing one, how could they do it? Spooks is going on with series 10, but watching it will be to revive the sense of loss. That's for sure.

 The medical study I mentioned at the beginning says:
However, "while some participants felt real distress at the loss of their favorite TV shows, the distress is not comparable to the distress that comes from real breakups," Moyer-Guse said. "There are some aspects of relationships with TV characters that may be comparable to real relationships, but the intensity is generally much lower."
Does this mean it won't be so difficult to recover from this syndrome? Does anybody else suffer from the same distressful symptoms?  Is there any remedy you can suggest to calm down, relieve this sense of loss? Apart from "wait on, time will heal any wound", please!
