Do you think you could survive 2 months with no support?

Asked by daytonamisticrip (4843points) September 5th, 2010

Would you survive if you had nobody to talk to for 2 months. Nobody to count on. At the end of the 2 months do you think you would be depressed or as happy as can be.

Two months is nothing. I could do it. I’m basing that on two years ago, when I passed out at seven in the morn and awoke at five PM, during Winter. I barely ever saw any sunlight. I got sick too, I think not seeing any sun caused it. This lasted for almost six whole months lol. It DOES get…depressing yes, but I was able to hack it.
Not saying I’d do it again though, despite that I love the night.

Sorry, I can’t imagine no support and nobody to talk to.

Yeah, I could. No problem.

Yes, would rather not, but yes. I live on a secluded property as it is, often go several days at a time without seeing or talking to anyone.

No doubt. Yes, I could survive and be very happy for 2 months or an eternity.

Though, that would require us to define “survive” and “happy” v-a-r-y carefully.

Am I shut-in or out in the wild? Because that has a serious impact on my answer. I can’t survive out in the middle of no where for more than a day. It’s kind of sad, but true. I’m a city-slicker through and through. If I’m locked in an apartment with enough food for a few months, but no Internet or anything to contact people, sure I could survive. I’ll actually get some reading done that way. Would I do it longer than necessary? Nah. I like being able to talk to people. People can be nice.

The main actor in The Pianist did not interact with people for six months to prepare for his role. I’m not sure I would last two months without some sort of scarring or a totally new perspective of human interaction, but I could certainly survive it.

I can’t handle a day without talking to my best friend in one form or another. When I was in the hospital and my phone died so I couldn’t even text her, I started edging toward the deep end and getting irritable and nasty before 24 hours was even up. Everyone else, though? Sure, I could go two months. As it is, sometimes I go days without speaking a word aloud. An average day of socializing leaves me with a raw throat because I’m so unaccustomed to talking.

If i had to yes i could, i certainly wouldn’t do it by choice.

I’m guessing i would be depressed until i met up with some people then i would be as happy as can be.

of course that is why I am answering this question I go months without interacting with a real person.

I think I could survive, if I have my computer and food.

As long as I have something to occupy my brain, I’d be fine. Books, art supplies, movies, newspapers… anything to keep my brain busy.

Sounds like a dream vacation imo.

Yes I think I could do it and I think I would emerge a changed person and most probably enlightened in some form…I’ve often thought about doing this kind of thing for a couple of weeks or a month…but it’s difficult when you have a child!

BoBo1946's avatar

Absolutely, as I’ve things to occupy my mind.

janbb's avatar

I would ge depressed but I would survive.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

@muppetish it would be like your everyday normal life except no one to talk to.

Seaofclouds's avatar

As long as I had my Kindle and food, I could do it. The longest I’ve gone without talking to someone before was a week and I didn’t even notice it. I could definitely go longer if I had to, but I wouldn’t do it by choice.

YARNLADY's avatar

Wait, if you mean like I am stranded on an island with no other contact, then yes, I could survive.

LornaLove's avatar

Yes I could
