Fox Sought Therapy After Miscarriage

British actress Emilia Fox was so distraught at losing her unborn baby, she underwent therapy to help her cope.
Fox divorced her husband, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button star Jared Harris, earlier this year (09) following the breakdown of their long-distance relationship and her miscarriage in 2007.
But Fox threw herself into her work rather than dealing with the heartbreak - until she realised how unhappy she had become.
She says, "I underestimated how big a deal it was. I dealt with it very practically. I was working, and just got on with continuing, and I never quite absorbed the reality of it. Psychologically, it takes its toll, and certainly in my case it was a delayed effect.
"I'm essentially a happy person, so it was a real shock not being that. But I suddenly woke up one morning and thought, 'The only person who can cure this disposition is me, and that means taking action and making changes and decisions.'"
