Yahoo news has a story about studies that show that Men Need Push to Admit Depression. Well, I don’t need the push. I’ve been depressed (not at the stage of “clinically diagnosed” but at the stage of knowing I am depressed) for some time now. Life things, family things, world events, job situation – large portions of it suck and my reaction has been to get very down and at times to just feel like giving up. I certainly would be amenable to sitting around all day in a bathrobe growing a ZZ Top beard and watching daytime TV. Many days I don’t feel like getting out of bed, I just do anyway.
