    I believe that you can and can’t die from a broken heart. I believe you can because I was watching this show on ID (Investigation Discovery) and a girl killed another girl she could not be with and went to prison for it. While she was in prison, she died thinking about the girl she had killed because they couldn’t be together. I say you can because when you are away from someone you love, you get depressed and don’t eat. Then, you starve to death.

    Yes, people can die from sadness and grief. In the news in some cases people have died from sadness because they lost someone they love or they been heart broken. Its sad that people die from grief or sadness.

    Yes, someone can die from a broken heart. If someone you really care about dies you will be hurt. It takes a lot for you to deal with a tragedy like that.

    Yes, someone may die from a broken heart because that person may love a person that might not love him or her and so they might go crazy (or cray cray) and commit suicide or become very depressed and die from a stroke from all that stress of LOVE!

    In my opinion I think our citizens can die from a broken heart, mentally and physically because they will have so much depression in them. They may even think that they are not needed in this world. For example, they will kill themselves from stress with a weapon or by overdosing.

    I do think its possible to die from a broken heart. But it’s how the heart is broken that determines if you can die from it. For example, lets say you meet the love of your life and he or she dies. Yon know no one can replace them. That’s a broken heart because grief can make the strongest person break down and die.

    It is possible for a person to die from a broken heart because they can become filled with grief of devastating sadness. It is possible for you to die from a broken heart because some people become very depress and do not eat. They can also become very sad; that can bring them closer to losing their life or dying.

    I say it is possible for somebody to have a broken heart because after suffering from sadness for a long time they will start to believe that they are worthless, and nobody care for them and they are welcomed in this world or don’t belong in this world.

    In addition of being broken hearted, that’s when they go through a phaseog having nightmares, crying in a corner, doing and saying hurtful things things to themselves.

    Yes, there are many things that may cause someone to die, but I consider dying from a “broken heart” to be the worst. A broken heart can mean many things in any culture, but it could also mean death from something that was very important that was taken away from you. When you think about it, a lot of people have stuff taken away from them but also it could be important.
    Anything can be important to the human mind, like a person, tree, toy, ancestor item, and etc. The reason I said “yes” because things can happen at any point and time, also anything is possible. Even though you may not be ready, but it could happen. I think people die from broken hearts every day.

    Yes it think it’s possible to die from a broken heart because someone can lose their appetite and never eat and die from anorexia. They also can become depressed because of the breakup.

    It think you can because someone you love can die and you can feel like you didn’t say bye and you can drink,take pills, or od.

    No, but a heart break can lead to suicidal thoughts. For instance, lets say all my family died. The first thought in my mind is that I have nothing to live for. That is a suicidal thought, and can lead to death.
