5.0 out of 5 stars Ladies! - It's HIM, not YOU! Read this book and quit feeling so alone!, September 15, 2005
This review is from: The Irritable Male Syndrome: Understanding and Managing the 4 Key Causes of Depression and Aggression (Paperback)
Yes, you heard me. It's HIM! NOT you! (So go ahead you angry men with IMS, flame away.) WOMEN - Quit blaming yourself. That is a woman's nature. To look inside ourselve to fix another's flaws. To listen while another beats us down verbally and criticizes and eventually believe it and attempt to find solutions for problems that are not our own. Let me explain my situation.

Everything changed between my sweet husband and I about a year ago. He became argumentative, irritable, moody, aggressive...and all of this AT A DROP OF A HAT! And to top things off, according to him, I was to blame. I began seeing a therapist believing that yes, maybe I was, maybe I was the cause of his stress, his mood swings, his irritable, this general hostility that I felt every time I was around him.

Then one day I was speaking my sister who mentioned this book and how she was convinced her fiancé had "Irritable Male Syndrome" a sort of male equivalent to PMS and I had to laugh...until I bought the book for myself; and it read it one evening with tears streaming down my face. It made sense, it's so obviously hormonal. Women recognize this in each other and in ourselves, but not our men.

This book has saved my sanity and may save yours. Ladies, if the husband you once had a loving, warm, open relationship with now treats you with utter hostility and constantly tells you he is the way he is because you don't do this or you don't do that or because you nag or you're a b!tch, even though deep down you know this is not the case, get this book. It will make you realize that you alone are not in this problem. It will help you understand the changes your man is undergoing and how you can help him help himself.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. My husband had himself put on testosterone therapy (he qualified as being very low) and, although he was "mildly" irritable before the therapy, during the trip up the testosterone scale and the trip down, he was argumentative, defensive -- basically crazy. He stormed out of the house (still waiting to see what will happen next.) So, beware if some doc looks at your guy's bloodwork and writes him a scrip for something. Hammer him over the head with this book instead! Coincidentally, I am in Dayton, Ohio also. Wish you and I could chat...
