You were very happily married but now you have marriage problems. Not only were you happy with your wife but you are also happy with yourself. You feel happy, calm, and ready to take on the world. This is all a thing of the past, though.
You lost your job, a death happened in the family, or you had to move away from your familiar neighborhood and EVERYTHING changed. You are no longer happy, you are irritable, you begin to pick fights, you start to go on-line all night long, and you begin to drink.
What has happened? Simple, you suffer from depression and, before it is too late, you better do something about it and get help fast before it is too late.
In this article I will point out to you some of the common signs of depression in men so you will know to get help.
Typical THOUGHTS and emotions of a depressed person.
*Wary of other people; very not trusting
*Fear of failure.
The world looks black to you so you interpret everything that is going around you very grimly and negatively. The universe is against you, people are out to get you, and you will fail at anything you try. You looked at these same things in a completely opposite light before you suffered from depression, but now that you a under the claws of depression this is the way your perceive everything that is going on around you.
Common ACTIONS that are telltale signs of male depression
Blame others or picks fights. This is a sign of depression only if you weren't like this until now. For a person who has always blamed others for their mistakes or picked fights then this is not a sign of depression (it is a sign that you should change but it is not depression).
Sleeps much less than before. He goes to bed late, wakes up in the middle of the night, or wakes up real early in the morning (without an alarm clock)
Controlling. AT first glance this symptom is really counter intuitive. How can it be that a person who feels so low and powerless try to control others? However after giving it a little thought it DOES make sense. It is because of his feeling of such hopelessness and lack of control over himself that he tries to control others as if to say to himself, "Yes, Charlie, you are still capable of controlling."
Overuse of internet,, TV, video games or, sometimes, even substance abuse. To escape the horrendous feeling of depression a lot of men engage in addictive behaviors. Like this, they forget themselves and have some temporary relief from the black feeling of depression.
Even happily married people can end up having marriage problems if you or your spouse suffers from depression. The good news, though, is that it is treatable. If you have experienced a few of these symptoms for more than two weeks than get help as fast as you can. Do it before it is too late.
