Depression Therapy and Anxiety Therapy Near You—Counselors and Therapists in Indiana
Whether you have a Netflix subscription or not, chances are you’ve heard of the show 13 Reasons Why. The popular show features a lot of hard topics and touches on the importance of maintaining good mental health – and getting the help you need. One of the characters, Jessica Davis, is faced with a tough challenge that she struggles to overcome. This trauma causes her to suffer from depression and anxiety. Throughout the show, you watch Jessica isolate herself, go through mood swings, feel angry, and ultimately come to find empowerment in her situation. If you are also dealing with depression and anxiety, counseling and therapy can help you take control of your situation and start living a happier, fuller life.
Sometimes things just happen to you. They just happen. You can’t help it. But it’s what you do next that counts. Not what happens, but what you decide to do about it.” – Hannah Baker, 13 Reasons Why
The causes of depression and anxiety are diverse and complex. While it’s hard to always pinpoint a specific instance in time that caused you the feelings you’re having, a licensed and trained therapist can help. If you are struggling with depression and/or anxiety, consider working with a depression and anxiety counselor at Thriveworks Indiana. While it may not be an easy decision, working with a psychologist is proven to help you move on and control your symptoms.
Anxiety vs. Depression: How Do I Know If I’m Depressed or Anxious?
Anxiety and depression have a lot of overlapping signs and symptoms – that’s why it can be hard sometimes to distinguish the two. For example, you may have depression and develop anxiety because of your current condition and vice versa. Consider this situation:
Alexia and her significant other of five years started drifting apart and they decided to end their relationship. It left Alexia feeling worthless, down, and un-trusting to the people in her life. Instead of meeting up with friends and being social at work, she started staying home a lot more and always felt tired. Chores around the house started falling behind and she started to develop anxiety. Now Alexia is anxious she won’t be able to get her daily activities done because she’s so tired and has no motivation. She also feels anxious over her friends and family distancing themselves from her because she hasn’t been as active in her relationships.
Alexia’s situation isn’t uncommon. For some people, they may only experience one illness and not both. However, it’s important to recognize the signs and symptoms so you can get the help you need before your situation gets out of control. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Anxiety: restlessness, lack of sleep, constant worry, heart palpitations, mood swings, irritability
- Depression: intense emotions, unusually persistent emotions, lethargy, fatigue, mood swings, worry
These are not the only symptoms of these two conditions, and you may have noticed some overlap. Both mental illnesses can be hard to deal with on your own and make you feel like you’re in a constant state of limbo. Thriveworks Indiana can help you tackle these difficult emotions safely and effectively.
