    • Sadly, this is true. The term is called Psychogenic death. The phenomenon occurs when someone experiences a trauma they feel they cannot escape, making death seem like their only option, according to Dr. John Leach from the University of Portsmouth.

    • There's also a similar way to die called cardiomyopathy, it's a fancy way of saying you literally die from a broken. It is caused by deep sudden emotional traumatic event such as losing a loved one. You know when something bad happens & you feel a sharp pain your chest?

    • Good evening ladies and gents, I bring sadness. I've just left my backyard after finding my dog of 12 and a half lying lifeless by by the tree I sit near to pet/bathe him.

    • If you truly lost the will to live you would stop eating, bathing, just about everything. This goes far beyond depression. Most people with depression are functional meaning they still live life, go out with friends, family, go to work, etc

    • I remember this. My Uncle Aaron fought for a couple decades past a series of health complications. At one point he said, “I’m tired of living”. He died within the next 3 days I believe. It was a few years ago but I still remember him like it never happened. He was always so cheery at reunions.

His thoughts were that in their culture and economic position they felt they had nothing they could provide for others or themselves post wound so they gave up easier.
