Robo Man Syndrome, When Men Don’t Emote

Men Do Not Emote.  Well, SOME men. Robo Man Syndrome When Men Do Not Emote.  This is a common issue that comes up.   We are live and back but we missed you last week.    Oh my goodness our internet,  it went down again.   But we do have a new IT company!   Hopefully they will do better shout out to NtegraIT who did come by  and fix everything. hopefully that will be resolved, we have missed  you! we’re all set to go and we realized we didn’t introduce ourselves.  I’m Dr. Laura Dabney this is Joelle Brant we both work with executive men help them with their relationships.  We help the robo man syndrome men who do not emote.  so we have talked about a lot of things over the last several weeks. Wow at least a month yeah we’ve talked about emotions and how they sometimes men like  to protect themselves from emotions in ways it might not be a good idea. yeah like pathological altruism and doing everything for everyone at the expense of yourself not be at boundaries. we talked about boundaries more popular ones we talked about panic and anxiety yes phobias oh yeah Joelle’s phobia . I did kill an ant yesterday so maybe I’m making progress.  Well I’ve been talking we’ve both been talking with Dr. Jed diamond and I am  really fond of him.  he is a psychologist who works outside of San Francisco and he played a big role in helping us understand men’s emotions.   he has a very similar clientele to us.   so we really have a lot in common and it’s been a joy to talk with him he actually wrote the book male menopause back in the 70s and since then he’s gotten interested in what he calls irritable man syndrome.   which is basically men who feel the only emotion they’re allowed to have is anger.   okay so if they’re hurt they’re angry, if they’re sad they’re angry, you know everything else  come out that’s anger!  so that’s been a really interesting.  so that’s what he sees the most that’s what he sees a lot of.  that’s what we’ve been writing about. I was telling about what I see and what we talked about which is Robo man and it’s a little different than irritable man but along the same lines where men often feel that any kind of emoting is negative or effeminate or …

Men, Emotions, and Mental Health Myths

  Men and emotions and mental health myths. We’re live again!! Hi happy Tuesday! Tuesday feels like a Monday for me, double Monday. Double Monday week that’s not good. Why are we doing this? We are this doing this to help you understand what we do! Did we explain why were wanted to do this? We talked about a couple things. your hair, your kids, but really what we’re talking about is what it’s like to be  someone in mental health. Also about men and their masculinity. So that’s really what that’s what we’re talking about right because it’s so much. I think it’s really misunderstood, what it’s like to have a mental health problem. It is not always a disorder but it may be health or emotional problem and what getting help is like. There is a huge amount of misconception about that so we’re just trying to put some of that to rest. We want to break the myths and the stigma and that people think it’s really scary or they’re so afraid to come in.  As we mentioned in one of our videos we want to be a little bit more approachable. Let us make it a little bit easier, less fearful to come in and learn. Learn about you !!! I mean, not knowing about yourself is like not knowing the third floor of your house. By not understanding your emotions and where they come from you miss out on so much information about yourself. Here is a quick recap of last week. we touched about you know the three negative emotions that people mostly don’t deal with or know how to deal with anger, neediness, and sadness. Say it with us anger, neediness, sadness, are not bad things!! they’re not bad feelings! We always mention these emotions that people are trying to hide. those are the people who think they that those are a problem they shouldn’t have, that’s the source of most emotional problems right there. yeah so we see that a lot we probably talked about that a lot and then I added that one post about how we see.   Even  though we see that in both men and women.  there are some differences we see in men and women in that regard and I wrote a little post about that that got a little attention I would say how would I sum …
