University of Chicago show that lonelier a person feels the higher risk of depression. In the article, “The Surprising Effects of Loneliness on Your Health” it states, “…social interaction can be more effective at reducing (depression) symptoms than prescription anti-depressants. Which proves that interacting with people is just as important as drinking water. Without social interaction on a regular basis people feel lonely and if they don’t change their habits the symptoms begin to roll like an avalanche down a mountain and it is very hard to stop until it hits rock bottom; where no person wants to be. The University of Chicago also concluded that living alone increases the risk of suicide. Just as the monster said he will commit suicide because he couldn’t bare living alone in social isolation just the same way as many people in our own society do. Loneliness is a common thing that many people suffer from in today and is portrayed though Mary Shelley’s book Frankenstein . Loneliness spirals and aids a multitude of different diseases and mental illnesses. Without regular social interaction people begin to quake and turn inward where they find more loneliness. The monster and Victor Frankenstein found this out the hard way and never had the chance to overcome the loneliness they felt but the people of today do.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
