  • Very informative! Thanks!
  • I hate to trivialize or excuse violence against women, but depression, it seems, can lead to violent behavior. Should it criminalized or treated?
  • Wouldn't know if I never read it!!

    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.

    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.
  • I had a grandson that killed himself, he needed help for a long but never wanted it, a life that was wasted.

  • 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.

    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.

    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!
