Well said that man,I've just started reading this thread as I recently have been having some therapy to try to sort myself out, I was you typical male, I didn't think I had depression because I wasn't "sad" all of the time but it turns out I have ! I'm basically "burnt out" and after speaking to someone I feel better and have a greater understanding of what has been happening to me. Basically my head is clouded with a million things going on all the time in there and a inability to relax and switch off coupled with anxiety has made me exhausted. Not physically exhausted but emotionally exhausted. The therapist explained that it's something very common for a man of my age (early 40s) and it could have been at one time called a mid life crisis but instead of drinking/affairs/fast cars etc some people suffer what I'm going through. Lots of worries (elderly parents, busy work, kids at school, problems with siblings, I could go on) and it leaves you with no time to relax and be yourself and switch off from life for a little time now and again. Sorry for the length of the post but please if anyone is feeling that way tell someone a problem shared is one halfed and it's nothing to be ashamed of !
