  • I hate to trivialize or excuse violence against women, but depression, it seems, can lead to violent behavior. Should it criminalized or treated? - 11/17/2013 12:31:36 AM

    GReat article. My husband finally admitted after many years of depression that he needed help and I was able to find him a great therapist. Within weeks he started to open up to family about his problems; seeing a dialogue outside of politics and weather was heart warming to see. He is making great progress and the therapist and I are trying to get my husband more involved in yoga to help him with his condition. My one complaint, I now have to share my yoga space and toys ... but I am happy to do it for such a good cause! Having a list of the symptoms would have helped me understand his condition sooner so I hope this article will help others as well. - 11/11/2011 9:03:57 PM

    A friend's husband committed suicide several years ago, and she had no idea he was sufferering from depression. She was devastated after he died, and to this day, feels a tremendous amount of guilt for not seeing his problems and being able to prevent his death. - 11/11/2011 2:04:59 PM

  • The hardest thing was to admit to it. When I did it was like a load was lifted. It didn't fix things right away, but I felt like there was hope and the more I learn about it in men, the more I am finding my mates are suffering as well. Having the courage to speak out seems to give other men the courage to "come out" as it were. - 8/31/2011 1:50:53 AM

    wow... my depression is manly! these are always my early symptoms... i believe that the emotional ones come from the tiredness caused by the sleep disruption, bad eating habits etc. - 9/29/2009 5:28:36 AM

    Thank you for this article. My husband suffered from depression for nearly 11 years before he was able to go off of medication. This article is spot on -- my husband would complain more about the physical effects than the emotional -- although the behavioral aspects are very accurate. More angry and substance abuse (this was before we met and married) was a symptom of his depression. I hope wives out there can benefit from this article! - 7/28/2009 5:30:04 PM

    This article is informative, I benefited greatly. I think many women would be able to relate but perhaps wouldn't read this article since it is titled depression in men. I wish the symptoms were not labeled men and women since the patterns are not rigid and both sexes can experience both lists of symptom patterns. This article is worth reading. - 3/22/2009 7:12:08 AM
  • This was very informative and lets everyone know that depression is NOT gender-centric. Many men suffer in silence, unable to put a finger on exactly what's wrong. I would love to see more of these types of articles to inspire men to get talking about things that were once taboo topics outside of thinking them. - 6/27/2008 10:09:39 AM
  • Great article. My brother who has dealt with depression for 30 years, always says that if doctors want to find men with depression, they should first look in a tavern. - 3/31/2008 9:34:53 AM
