Is Your Husband Depressed?

Author : Phil Tucker

One would think that a wife would know her husband better than he knows himself, but if the divorce rate tells us anything is that often communication is not optimal between a married pair. Thus just because your husband seems to be doing well does not necessarily mean he is; too many men hide their true feelings, especially those sentiments that are not idolized in our society such as sadness, insecurity and depression, trying to portray themselves to the world as rugged and stoic alpha males when they may in fact be hurting, desperate, or unhappy. Is your husband depressed? Do you know what signs to search for? In today's article we're going to give you a couple of tips so that you can do your best to be alert to possible issues that your husband is striving to hide from you, and be better prepared to help him through a difficult phase in his life.

Depression can manifest itself in both emotional and physical guises, and one of the most common physical manifestations can be stomachache and backache. Problems such as constipation and diarrhea, headaches and back pain are common amongst men, but often unlinked to depression which is their true cause. That is in and of itself indicative of the power of our mental states as they can influence in profoundly physical ways. It has been proved time and time again in clinical trials that people who are genuinely depressed often feel real physical discomfort in the form of one of these ailments, adding proof to the assertion that clinical depression is a medical disorder that needs to be treated.

One of the classic images of an unhappy man is a drunk man, and indeed substance abuse is a common recourse for men who are wrestling with depression. If your husband has begun to indulge in a couple of beers each night before the television, preferring to pass away the evening hours with a six pack rather than engaging with friends and family, then you know something is wrong. Further, alcoholics are almost twice as likely to suffer from a major depression, creating a vicious cycle that can lead to serious problems. Unfortunately many men will seek to hide from their feelings of depression by masking them with drugs or alcohol, such that these can be sure fire ways to detect if your husband is beginning to become very depressed.
