    Default question about males

    what is it with men letting everything fall apart healthwise until it's a crisis?

    I realize not all men do this, but I've know quite a few who do this I can think of 3 off the top of my head: my dad, my friend's dad, and her boyfriend
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so :hi:

    Could you be more specific? What kinds of crises? I try and go on walks three times a week, for instance.

    then this doesn't apply to you, so I doubt you'd have an answer.

    A manifestation of a form of acceptable stupidity let rampage unhampered 'til it's too late.

    Starting from 'toughen up and don't cry' ending in 'death by shrugging off bullet wound in careless game of Russian roulette'

    Well, I developed diabetes and a more serious health crisis largely because of conscientious concern for duty, providing and protectiveness of others which had been taken, by myself, to a fault.

    Which is to say I did not prioritize it as I should have. Plus I trusted others to do so. They did not.

    I think it might be related to weight and that men don't feel anywhere near the same level of pressure to monitor weight. This translates to other health issues.

    That's my theory, anyway.

    For some people could it be a struggle to admit they aren't in control or have a vulnerability? It seems like a weakness to admit they are sick or in pain and they can't make it go away themselves?

    Because society inflicts great pressure upon men to be competent and independent and not ask for help.

    Distorted thinking about masculinity, vulnerability and probably some denial and stupidity as well. Every man that I've encountered with this type of thinking, eventually regret it without exception.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
