Yes. Some people who've had they're hearts broken by disappointment just give up. When they stop caring what happens, they stop taking care of themselves. That leads to various diseases that will eventually kill them.
I believe so though I would say it's often an indirect result of not having that person around. Perhaps the one who died was the reason that the living one took care of themselves and without that person, they lose the motivation or the actual help required in doing so. There are spouses who lose their loved ones and die not long after and retirees who are let go or retire and die not long after. What the living may lose is the routine or the connection(s) that came with the one who died before them and they may become depressed and free fall from there in caring for themselves mentally and physically.
Yes I agree. I have watched so many people retire from where I work, and die so soon after. The job was everything to them. Do to the great demand of the job they had to retire and it was as if they lost their best friend.
I have observed this as well. This is why all people must have a work life balance. Especially when we retire or lose a job we should have a variety of interests and relationships. There is more to life than work.
It would be a combination of heartbreak and lacking the will to live that might lead a person to neglect basic requirements to maintain their health. They pull away from family and friends and shut down.
The depression that sets in post heart break can be fatal. People may want to end their life as they can't see anything except for the heart break. A therapist is needed for such people but in most cases, the immediate family is not that understanding.
