Living with depression and anxiety can be tough. Depression makes you feel like you’re in a dark cloud and can’t see your way out. Anxiety makes you feel like you’re losing your mind. Depression tells you that getting out of bed isn’t worth it and anxiety is whispering in your ear, “But, what if?” Depression sucks out any of your motivation, but anxiety makes you stress and feel like you have to do that one thing. It feels like you’re in a constant state of limbo and you don’t know where to turn. Nothing feels right and you can’t see straight. It’s more than just having a bad day.

We are not to blame for our illness, but we are responsible for our health.” –Victoria Maxwell

Millions of Americans suffer from anxiety and depression. They’re not just something that you can “just get over.” The reasons why people have anxiety and depression are all unique to them, but one thing is the same: it’s hard to battle alone. If you have anxiety and/or depression, consider reaching out to a helping hand. At Thriveworks New Jersey Counseling, we have online anxiety and depression counselors who are trained and dedicated to providing their clients with the most comprehensive care. Ready to get started? Just give us a call.

Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety

While anxiety and depression are separate illnesses, they often occur together. On the other hand, just because you have one doesn’t mean you have the other. Regardless, they are difficult to address and overcome on your own. They’re consuming and pull you into them with a tight grip. If you’re wondering if you may be battling one or both of these conditions, consider these common symptoms:

  1. Common symptoms of anxiety: Loss of sleep, loss of appetite or overeating, sweating hands and/or feet, nausea, excessive worry, discomfort in social situations, prolonged feelings of fear, dizziness, irritability, tension, fatigue, difficulty concentrating.
  2. Common symptoms of depression: Prolonged feelings of unhappiness or sadness, loss of interest in former passions, anger, irritability, fatigue, inability to focus, constant worry, rapid weight gain or loss, feelings of guilt, suicidal thoughts or actions, addiction as a means of coping.

You may have noticed that a lot of symptoms overlap the two different illnesses which is why they commonly go hand in hand. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms on an ongoing basis, it may be time to reach out for the help of a therapist or counselor. Letting these things go on for too long can be detrimental to both your mental and psychical help. Fortunately, we can help you.

Help for Depression and Anxiety  

There are many different reasons why someone may be experiencing anxiety and depression. Maybe you are moving to a new city. A loved one passed away. You get laid off from your job. Your significant other breaks up with you. You experienced a traumatic event. You could even be sad and just don’t know why.

If you’ve never been to therapy, it may seem intimidating or scary. However, speaking to a therapist is fairly simple. When you begin working with an online counselor at Thriveworks New Jersey, they will assess the problems and challenges you are facing. By getting to know you and your situation on a deeper level, they will create a treatment plan that is unique to your specific needs and goals. Our therapists are friendly and dedicated to helping you get to where you want to be.

Therapy is designed to help you address the root cause of your anxiety or depression and in doing so can provide you a lot of relief. Once that has been done, your therapist will focus on changing your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes surrounding that cause. We will use a variety of different methods and techniques to achieve these goals such as traditional talk therapy, art therapy, coping mechanisms, and management techniques. With time, you can make meaningful progress and get back to a place of happiness and success.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
