Loneliness can kill you

Recommended Posts

"Significantly increased risk of all-cause mortality among cardiac patients feeling lonely"

 

"A strong association between loneliness and poor patient-reported outcomes and 1-year mortality was found in both men and women across cardiac diagnoses.

"The results suggest that loneliness should be a priority for public health initiatives, and should also be included in clinical risk assessment in cardiac patients."

Especially if you're into BDSM and there's no one there to undo the knots.

That's why it is good for people to have a dog or cat if they are isolated from others or their family.

I thought about my sister's mother-in-law, she had a pet skunk and lots of dogs, goats, cats and rabbits.  She was not isolated, lived in a house behind my sister's and she did survive a lot longer with heart and other issues, even was on dialysis for 7 years.  I think that is a good example of the other end of the spectrum for comparison.

After watching John Wick, I'll never see Beagle pups the same again :unsure2:  Someone hurt his and he went all Baba Yaga on them...

Adamski and Seal knew about this in 1989.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.
