    I am 23 years did luv mrg against my parents wish at the age of 20 leave them and moved with my husband from india to uk . My parents spend all their money for my study and sending me here. I was feeling so happy thata time but now everything changed my husband love changed. I feel so sad that I leave my family because of him he has no love for me. I am staying with him but it feels to me like I am stranger I cant even recognise myself m just lost. Its emptyness and sadness inside me nd dipression. I feel like I should do sucide to get rid of this dipression. I donte feel like to talk to anybody. Lots of things going inside which makes me so sad and give dipression. What should I don can someone help me?

    I think I am dying from leaving my husband and son. I've destroyed their lives and caused hurt unimaginable. My son is 15. I was married for 21 years. I tore up everything they counted on.I asked God to forgive me but I cannot forgive myself. Hurt never leaves.

    Find reasons to smile, take life one day at a time and when sadness does come, cry real hard. I feel better afterwards.

    From personal experience, I know you can "let go" of life when ever you choose.

    Absolutely. I have seen it happen many times.

    The Irish musician Ronnie Drew died on 16 Aug 08, about a year after his wife died. He didn't really want to live after she died.

    You are absolutely right. Studies have shown that depression can weaken a person's immune system.

    It's possible that by being in a lowered mental state can alter your overall health. Call it sadness, depression, or whatever, it does have an effect....

    I think I am dying. I am only 23, was engaged with PJ for four years. The first 2 years were great, and the last 2 years we spent fighting leukemia together. It was his fight, but it was a joint effort, really. You woudn't understand unless you knew what the words, till death do us part, really meant. I haven't stopped thinking about him. He died 1 year ago, but the week after he died, I've been suffering not only from grief but my bloodwork is all messed up. I pass out frequently. You name a sickness and I've had the side effects. No doctor has been able to diagnose me and this last episode almost killed me. Am I dying from sadness? My blood pressure dropped so low I should be dead. No I am not suicial (why would you want to put your loved ones through grief, thats selfish) I don't do drugs and I was a student teacher, until I failed the attendence policy from being in the hospital. Comments?

    SkeeterandPJ,
    First - so sorry for your loss of PJ.
    Second - do what I did when I lost my husband. Find yourself a really good psychiatrist and let your grief go. And, secondly, find yourself a reall good GP and get your body straightened out. Believe me - I went to a psychiatrist for a year, 3X a week before I realized that I went through all the stages of grief and I finally accepted my husband's death and was letting go. That year really changed my life and I find I can handle the loss of a love one much better. Give it a try.

    i think so...sadness and stress can affect your health, so eventually it will catch up with you.

    My great grandfather died 5 months after my great grandmother....I truly believe he just couldn't live without her and he died of a broken heart....he literally gave up the will to live.

    Yes, i think one could die slowly of sadness.
    Not becasue of the actual emotion itself, as if its a disease or something. But because of how it makes one feel. Depression is known to have effects of both mental and physical varieties.

    After a long time of both thinking and feeling negatively, a person will wither away.

    I think being sad shortens your lifespan, so in that way I think this is true. You die early.

    Also, I've seen obituaries where an old couple has died days apart after being married for a really long time. I've even seen obits that have said they "died of a broken heart" after their spouse passed on. Sad, huh?

    I believe one can die of sadness....and just having things happen in life that will break one's heart to the point of no repair. I describe my ex-husband as being my personal heart attack because my heart has been attacked. I have been divorced for 10 years and the pain is still excruciating. I know without a doubt I will never get over him and what he did to me. I have dated many men and even married again on the rebound but I just can't get past this.

    Yes. I almost did. I was so depressed my organs started to shut down. It was scary. I had about 5 doctors tell me I was going to die.
