Loneliness Epidemic: If you feel lonely, you're not alone
May 1, 2018
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Do you feel lonely? If so, you're not alone. A new study reveals that there is a loneliness epidemic in America. And the younger you are, the more likely you are to feel this ache. Today, Dr. Carole explains why we're more lonely - from the gizmos we're attached to 24/7, to the increased number of divorces leaving scars on kids of divorce which make them afraid of intimacy, to the headlines that divide and isolate us from each other. Dr. Carole talks about today's headlines and how the media flaunts stories that set us apart because controversy sells. She cites examples of these: President Trump, Stormy Daniels, White House Correspondents' dinner, Kathy Griffin, Kanye West, Robert Mueller, the Iran deal, Parkland high school students for and against guns, Chinese prom dresses, and Logan Paul.Though we're exhausted by these stories, we're driven to them like moths to a flame to see if our side is winning. But, something must be done, because loneliness kills - literally.
