In my area, most support groups are almost entirely women. I know a lot of men struggle with anxiety but very few of them ever talk about it. It seems like we live in a society where it is frowned upon. It makes me wonder how many men out there aren’t getting help because of this. I was lucky enough to meet another guy who shared similar struggles and I have someone I can talk to about it. It is not always easy talking to women about this stuff. My wife is understanding but she has never gone through long periods of anxiety, stress, nor has ever had a panic attack. I am happy to have found a place online that is more focused on solutions. Happy to be a part of the community.
I feel you on this. I have tried opening up about my struggles with friends and family but they just tell me to man up and suck it up. It is not that easy. Glad to have found a place where other guys are that know what I am going through. I just joined today.
