Depression in men often looks different from what most people think of as depression. It also looks different from depression in women. Of course, there are many exceptions. But generally depression in men is more about angry adrenalin than it is about tragic tears.
For this reason men are often clinically depressed without realizing it. “So what do they think is wrong?,” you ask. They experience the misery as stress and often do not connect the dots with the cause of the stress, which is depression.
Now there is a big problem that emerges when you think that the source of your difficulties is stress. The problem is that if I think I am stressed I can easily blame the things (and people!) who are stressing me out. Depression in men lowers stress-tolerance and annoyances that previously could be endured in stride become intolerable irritations. When depression in men is recognized for what it is, then the true cause of the stress can be faced and addressed. When depression is not recognized as the source of stress it becomes male blindness disease.
