Tim Krass

Tim Krass’ harrowing, dramatic personal story weaves its way throughout his book YOU DON’T HAVE TO SWALLOW YOUR GUN. Tim lived with depression, suicide attempts and has studied masculinity for more than thirty-seven years.  His diagnosed condition of ‘severe depressive disorder that is recurring’ was the reason that he abused marijuana, and that he had a knife in his hand in order to slit his wrists and bleed out.  This condition ruined his business and personal relationships, and retarded his growth as a human being. His condition was a factor in causing his heart attack as well as expanding the size of his ego, which limited the quality of life.

Despite having a heart attack, Tim has lived through a severe depressive disorder that is recurring as well as his forty-one year addiction to drugs and alcohol. He understands what masculinity is and what masculinity is not, so he can ask for help with his diseases and give his best to living a healthy and happy life. He is dedicating his life to create awareness of his story so that other men don’t have to go through the pain and suffering that he experienced because men CAN get the support they require to manage their depression and many times addictions, in order to be the best version of themselves. He wants to help as many people and save as many lives as possible.
