I’d like to discuss depression warning signs with you because I know from personal experience what feeling depressed can do to a man during midlife.
Additionally, I know that we as men will often try to “live with it”, rather than seek out help. This not only leads to a deteriorating lifestyle for you personally, but it also affects your partner and your relationship.
Many wives become depressed simply because they see your depression warning signs and don’t know what to do in order to help you through it.
I do realize that many of us can feel “low” for a variety of reasons and it doesn’t always mean we’re deeply depressed.
However, it’s important to me that you understand when it may be time for you to seek outside help. If you find that you have an abundance of the following symptoms, please don’t try to “live with it”. Your life, your relationship and your happiness during midlife are on the line here.
Consider how many physical changes you’ve experienced:
Depression warning signs in this area could be:
Please understand that all of us can have a few of the above depression warning signs at some point. What I want you to consider is whether you can tick off an abundant amount of these symptoms.
If so, I encourage you to think about getting help. As men, we can think of “getting help” as a sign of weakness.
However, please consider where not getting help for depression and continuing to spiral downward is going to take you.
Will ignoring depression warning signs and withdrawing more and more from your life create strength, ambition and lovingness in your life…or just the opposite?
One of the first things I suggest you do if you think you’re depressed is to talk to your spouse or close family member/friend. Open up about it. Get some feedback. Then, if you realize you need it, get outside help so you can overcome this.
I also believe that if you read some of the stories on my site about other men who have gone through midlife depression, you’ll realize that you’re not alone and that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Don't forget, though, that men are harder to diagnose because we don't recognize or won't admit the symptoms of depression.
