A beautiful compassionate look at America’s male suicide rate.

It sounds to me like the traditional view of manhood is killing men.

Places like the more liberal New York have a suicide rate which is half that of Montana.

This is why I hate attitudes like that portrayed in the poen If

I wonder if the high number of men who have done military service and consequently have PTSD is also a factor.

My own PTSD had neatly caused me to walk under a bus! I was totally shell-shocked at the end of my relationship once I had started to wake up!

Stiff Upper lips kill men!

We need to walk alongside our men, not behind them.

I go to a divorce support group. It is full of men. Decent Men often struggle with divorce and separation! It is a fantastic group I learned about through Meetup,com

You can do absolutely anything through Meetup, it really helped me get back on my feet. Going out was a challenge at first but it had helped me start going out again after being a virtual prisoner in my home.

I tried to get out to a book club once, He just drove off and left the children. I had to turn back. By the time we had separated the children were old enough to be left home for an evening fortunately.
