The definitions aren't that original, but at least it was fun creating a word?

Eisomatic
/ī 'səˈmadik/
adjective

1. Relating to being hypothermic; for the entire body to freeze.
    "The man they found trapped under the frozen lake was eisomatic, having died of hypothermia and completely frozen"
  • Having intense frostbite in a specific area
        "Her child was outside in the cold far too long, his fingers developed frostbite and turned eisomatic!"

2. A deep, consuming feeling of emptiness, specially at a loved one's death.
    "His mother was eisomatic after Tom died, never crying and never mourning but merely vacuous"

3. Relating to shunning, avoiding, exiling someone.
    "My high school best friend was eisomatic to me when we went to college, completely avoiding and shunning me from her life"

Origin
:
From the Old English īs 'ice' and the Greek sōma ‘body’
A little iffy on the second definition, but it makes sense to be because ice connotes some sort of harsh emptiness (to me, at least)

This is for cherryn's challenge. Y'all should check it out!
