Dunno about main cause for me but it doesn't help. Feeling unwell can add to feeling lonely too.

It seems like it can work both ways: depression can be caused by loneliness, and loneliness can be caused by depression. For me, it's that loneliness is caused by depression.

For me, loneliness, or being alone all the time, means no emotional support - and that can lead to depression, yes. But finding the right people to be in my life is a challenge. SO, until then I have to be my own support system. But yes, I do think loneliness can lead to depression. For some people.

Anyone here have loneliness as main cause of their depression ?

One of the loneliest periods of my life was when I had three roommates. As I couldn't relate to anyone and there was constant tension.
