Women are often more likely than men to experience classic depression symptoms such as feelings of sadness, worthlessness, and guilt.
Men who are depressed are more likely to be irritable or angry -- and sometimes abusive. They are more likely to lose interest in their work or hobbies, but some throw themselves into their work to avoid dealing with depression. Men are more likely than women to have difficulty sleeping. They’re also more likely to turn to drugs or alcohol when they are depressed.
