Hi, anybody ever threaten to threaten suicide? I'm about there if I don't get on disability. Why be a man if I can't function like one or at least even a 1/2 a one?

We have had suicide threats on here, yes.  We have to delete them so nobody usually sees them.  I don't know what is going on but here are some numbers and sites that might be of some use to you.  Many people have to go on disability.  It doesn't make you any less of a man, it just means that you have a disability.  There are many of us who could use disability and can't get it.  So even if we aren't considered disabled, we still are.  I hope that you feel better soon.

Hi there,

I think its important to look at what a man really is because many people hold on to a stereotype which is quite out-dated these days. Also, I guess it would depend on why you think you cannot function as a man. Would you like to share some details with us?
