Today I talk about the 7 differences between men and women when it comes to depression. Obviously, everyone will feel different, and nothing will be cut, but these are just some of the statistical differences we see between the sexes. I think it's important to keep in mind that women are twice as likely as men to fight depression. Therefore, the more we know, hopefully we can ask for help first.
1. Women tend to feel more sad and worthless. While men tend to feel more irritable and agitated.
2. Women tend to remove negative negative feelings. While men, they are more likely to attack others.
3. Women tend to deal with food and friends. While men tend to deal with television, sex and alcohol. This really only shows us how both sexes can be desensitized from their depression when it becomes too much.
4. Women also tend to be depressed by stressful events in life. Men can see better that it is just a situation and it will disappear and it will be fine. Women, on the other hand, will ruminate at night and really worry or get stressed by the situation.
5. Women are much more likely to have problems with a coexisting eating disorder. Why would that be? Because we tend to face the use of food! If you are using food to numb your feelings of depression, ask for help. It can improve, but the sooner we receive help, the easier the recovery will be.
6. Depression is more debilitating for women. I would assume that this is because we ruminate and support our friends during these difficult times. This can make us feel worse and worse and potentially ruin relationships. Please get professional help sooner rather than later!
7. Women approach more often than men! Then, men, stretch out! Let's look for help sooner rather than later.
