Can loneliness kill you? I dont mean indirectly, such as being a driving force behind suicide. I mean is it possible, that you are so desperately lonely, so alienated and unconnected to other human beings, that your mind and body start to decay, until one day, you just lose the will to live on a biological level, and your heart fails or something similar. Ive heard that mental health affects physical health, so its possible i guess? I feel that my loneliness could be doing this, being alone for so long has to have some physical side effects. Anyone?
