Thriveworks Manassas Provides Counseling for Anxiety and Depression

How often have you heard statements like these from well-meaning friends or family members?

“You’ll feel better, all you need is a good night’s rest.”
“Just take a few deep breaths and everything will be fine.”
“Get outside and take a long walk to shake off those blues.”
“Doing some meditation has helped me worry a lot less.”

Though these statements are meant to be helpful, they’re usually provided by people who don’t quite understand the depths of the problem. Everyone is a little down at times, maybe after the loss of a family member. And most people have been anxious and nervous about new situations, such as moving to a new city or starting a new job. But nervousness isn’t anxiety and being down isn’t depression.

Anxiety and depression usually differ from simply anxiousness or sadness by how strong the emotions are and how long they persist. These pervasive thoughts intrude on your every-day life and keep you from focusing on what’s going on around you. Anxiety and depression are common mood disorders that affect approximately 1 in 4 adults in the United States during their lifetime.

Anxiety and Depression Can be Beat

Without proper treatment, anxiety and depression symptoms can linger for some time, possibly months. Along with the emotional challenges, anxiety and depression can cause physical symptoms as well, such as fatigue, insomnia and stomach issues. When they occur, these symptoms can interfere with your daily life, forcing you to postpone or cancel your plans. Fortunately, anxiety and depression respond well to treatment, such as the counseling we offer at Thriveworks Manassas VA. With treatment, some people see improvement in a few weeks. The speed at which you’ll see improvement will vary, though, based on the specific symptoms you have and how severe they are.
