Depression, Love Life and Male Culture

Recently I received news that a person who I worked with died at 48 years old. It shocked me.

Then I discovered that they had ridden their bicycle into a local woods and took a boat load of pills. The suicide made me wonder if working for the federal government could be so stressful. Then I learned of the split in his marriage.

There are many more men that face dark moments in their lives and men in this culture does not provide an effective answer, except suck it up or deal with it.

I found this article on a major league baseball player from the Oakland A’s fascinating because it discusses some of these issues.
