Hey fella's, you can't just tough out depression....
Depression is an illness of the body. Yes, your mind is still a part of your body, although some men think that anxiety and depression is something you can just tough out, perhaps they worry its a sign of weakness.
Things happen to bodies. Sometimes you break a leg, at other times your regulatory systems struggle to regulate mood and feelings of well-being and you develop depression or anxiety or any number of psychological disorders.
Getting the flu is not a sign of weakness, its an illness and so are psychological disorders.
Psychological disorders do not just go away on their own, and worse, many of the coping mechanisms that men use to tough it out can actually exacerbate symptoms.
Psychological disorders are real illnesses and need professional treatment to aid recovery.
The good news is that these disorders are treatable.
Do not put it off. Seek treatment sooner rather than later.
