My therapist recommended a book to me a few months ago, and reading it honestly changed my life. It's called, "I Don't Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression", by Terrence Real.

Read the summary here https://www.amazon.com/Dont-Want-Talk-About-Overcoming/dp/06...

The thesis of the book is about how depression often manifests in men in ways society doesn't recognize as depression. Examples would be rage problems, substance abuse, "workaholism", and many others.

I don't know, maybe the book just caught me at exactly the right time in my life, but it has been profoundly transformative for me.
