Lonliness is something we have all experienced and while some people enjoy being by themselves others hate it.  Here is an interesting concept, living by yourself can make you very sick and can even kill you.  “Lonliness studies” came about from Frieda Fromm-Richamm’s 1959 document based the observation and study of mental illness and the ability to heal all mental illness patients through trust and intimacy.  Her document is the foundation of a movement of scientific research which essentially shows living by one’s self can make you sick and even kill you.  For more on this fascinating topic read, The Lethality of Loneliness: We now know how it can ravage our body and brain by Judith Shulevitz
