Male depression - symptoms

Depression is a mental illness that can affect both women and men. Although the nature of the disease is almost the same, the symptoms may be significantly different in both cases. In men very often the first symptom is anger and aggressiveness. Women, on the other hand, react with sadness and crying. Where does male depression come from?

As it turns out, men are able to mask their depression for a really long time because they don't want to let her get away with it. After all, depression is generally regarded as a weakness to which only women have a right. This illusory belief means that men do not want to receive proper support. Unfortunately, depression is not infrequently the cause of suicide.

Depression in men

Depression in men can be caused by many factors. The most common are financial imbalances, overwork, family problems and lack of sufficient self-confidence, which can result from various complications. Gentlemen are also losing their courage and courage because of sexual problems. Many of them are ashamed to use the help of a sexologist. Here are some of the symptoms that can indicate depression in men:

  • He gets emotional quickly, it's easy to get him off balance. He becomes aggressive and does not react adequately to the situation. He can be irritable and sad.
  • No activity gives him pleasure, neither work nor any other activity. He or she may not properly fulfil his or her professional or family responsibilities. He's moving away from his loved ones.
  • He often gets suicidal thoughts, takes up risky behaviours that were previously unobservable.
  • It has many physical symptoms that lead it out of the rhythm of everyday life, has sleep problems, heart palpitations, general weakness of the body, stomach disorder and muscle tremors.
  • He has erectile dysfunction, loses interest in sex life, which makes his mental state even worse.

Male depression - how to help?

A man who is depressed does not always have to confide in his problems. That is why the most important thing is to have a conversation and forbearance on the part of the partner. To get specialist help, you should usually go to your GP, who will help you find out what causes your depression: a physical or mental illness. It is often necessary to perform necessary medical examinations, on the basis of which the doctor may recommend a visit to a psychotherapist.
