Read Transcript

When a man is feeling less stressed out and wonders whether or not he should see his doctor, he should ask himself certain key questions and look out for these warning signs. Do you feel out of control with your anger? Are you feeling more angry than usual? Are you feeling irritable? Do you find it hard to control the way that you are feeling? Do you find that you easily break down? Do you easily feel overwhelmed? When you are driving, do you engage in road rage? Are you cutting people off? Are you yelling and crushing people from your car? Do you feel like sometimes that you might actually hit your significant other? Are you throwing things at the wall? Are you punching the wall? Do you feel that you need to turn to alcohol, or substances, or food, perhaps more often than you used to? Are you watching more pornography than you used to as a way to release advent?

Is your spouse perhaps feeling that you are escaping or avoiding your family responsibilities? If you're experiencing any of these things, and they are lasting you more than a few days, and it's concerning to you or to your family, it might be time to discuss it with your primary cure doctor, and perhaps even have a chat or consider counselling.

This may be in the form of individual counseling or perhaps even going with your partner.
