Formula One legend Michael Schumacher's wife Corinna is in danger of making herself ill as she worries and cares for her stricken husband and does not rest herself, according to a psychologist.
Ruya-Daniela Kocalevent, from Hamburg, has warned that Corinna should make sure she has 'downtime' for herself, because the danger is she would become ill too.
According to The Mirror, Kocalevent said that Corinna has endured enormous stress in the past six months after her husband's skiing accident landed him in a coma.The doctor said that if the seven-time world champion's wife assumes that she must deliver very one-sided support in the future, this one-sidedness makes no real partnership, adding that Corinna would need a break and rest and she should give in to that.
Corinna reportedly spent 10 hours a day solidly by her stricken husband's bed at the University Hospital in Grenoble where he was flown by a helicopter, after the skiing accident which left him in a near-death coma.
Schumacher has currently been transferred to a hospital closer to his home and is starting a period of rehabilitation after waking from his coma, the report added.
