A question to the gents out there,

Do you ever get frustrated\irritated and annoyed, while not sure why? It has happened to me lots in the last few weeks. Just annoyed and no reason why. I have a great job, great girlfriend and awesome friends.

The worst thing about it is no matter how nice people start being it only serves to make me more irritated.

It will eventually become better and i go back to my happy self.

Normally when I'm burnt out i waste time on the PS3 or go for a run\walk. Play with the dog etc.

but recently it wont work.

Does this happen to you? What do you do?

It happens to me too and I think Josephus has a good point. Our food affects us more than we realize and stress can trigger lots of different things. Some nature time (not just dog walking) might help. Personally, prayer has helped a lot with this particular issue as well as reducing the amount of violent depictions to which I'm exposed (videogames, TV shows).

I'm a firm believer that if you're unhappy, then there's something -- either in your past, or your present -- that is drawing your attention to it.

This angst is a gift.  It's showing your that there's something missing.  What it is, I couldn't say -- but part of you knows!

Check up never a bad idea.

I get out my frustrations (with myself, work, family, others, life etc) out in the gym. It's my thrice a week reset button. Somehow the world seems different after deadlifting three hundred pounds.

When that doesn't work I keep to myself even more than usual, it's the introvert thing to do, lol.

Fight Club.

It could be a lot of things. Maybe you just need some more sunshine. Doctor is a good place to start, like you said. Do you feel depressed?

I'm gonna go with Chris on this one... T levels are a good place to start.

It does happen to me, and it's often physical. Allergies, food, stress, a minor injury... and not being aware of it.

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
