Anxiety and Depression Counseling by Thriveworks Simi Valley
Dealing with anxiety and depression is a deeply personal experience, something that no one else may truly grasp unless they’ve faced a similar ordeal. Even though there are commonalties to some symptoms, anxiety and depression affect everyone differently. Dealing with both at the same time is very common, as half of people diagnosed with one are also generally diagnosed with the other as well. The combination of anxiety and depression can create a number of conflicting challenges, such as:
- Disruptive Sleep Patterns – With the combination of depression and worry, you either sleep all of the time, or you can’t fall asleep and stay asleep.
- Erratic Study or Work Habits – You have an intense need to do the best, but no energy to give the effort required to accomplish this.
- Desiring Instant Social Understanding – You desperately want to connect with someone, to have them understand, but you’re afraid of what they might find if you are honest and open.
- Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms – You try to erase thoughts from your mind by engaging in repetitive tasks or by using a mantra to mask your thinking.
