What Are Anxiety and Depression?

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental illnesses. Although the two are separate mood disorders, they are often co-occurring.

The key indicator of anxiety and depression is disruption—daily functioning and daily life cannot continue as normal because of the following:

  • Difficulty emotions such as hopelessness, emptiness, and/or sadness that are overwhelming and persistent.
  • Lack of interest in people, activities, or hobbies that individuals formerly considered enjoyable.
  • Attempted suicide or relentless thoughts of death.
  • Psychosomatic pain—emotional pain that is felt physically.

Have you experienced any of these symptoms? If so, consider reaching out for help from an experienced mental health professional. A variety of treatment options are available, and skilled therapists and counselors may be able to help you find a treatment plan that works for you.

Depression and Anxiety: What Are the Physical Symptoms?

People are whole beings—their minds and their bodies are interconnected. What affects the mind can affect the body, and what affects the body can affect the mind. When anxiety and depression strike, their effects can reach across the mind and the body. For example, people may struggle with the following as they struggle with anxiety and/or depression:

  • Distracted Attention – Depression and anxiety often make focusing extremely difficult. Negative thoughts can disrupt and distract, making daily tasks more difficult.
  • Sleep Disruptions – Some people experience insomnia with their anxiety and/or depression—difficulty falling or staying asleep. Others may experience hypersomnia—wanting to sleep all the time.
  • Indecisiveness – The inability to make decisions is a common side effect of depression and anxiety. People often hesitate and become stuck in situations they would have easily navigated without mental illness.
  • Feeling of Fatigue – Regardless of whether people are experiencing sleep disruptions or not, they are often plagued with listlessness while battling anxiety and depression. Lack of energy is a common complaint as is slow reaction time.
  • Sporadic Eating Habits – Similar to sleeping, eating habits can be disrupted by anxiety and depression. Some may eat voraciously. Others may not be able to even look at food. Some swing between the extremes.

It’s difficult to say how someone can impact your life. In a short time Donna has impacted my life and helped me see there is a journey. Although the journey is not clear to me, Donna listens with a compassionate heart and deep intent. She is truly engaged and seeks to help you understand as you tell your story. It is the telling of the story that is more important than the words, a wise person told me. Donna very much wants to hear your story. I’m lucky and grateful to have found her.
