Just by watching my diagnostic videos on depression and anxiety, you can easily think that they are very different. A depressed person does not like to do anything he used to do, feels desperate and sad, and has changes in his diet and sleep patterns. A person with anxiety, on the other hand, may feel as if he is living in a state of extreme agitation, being on the edge most of the day and worrying about anything and everything that happens in his life. These 2 mental illnesses appear to be at opposite ends of the spectrum, with no relationship between them. However, statistically speaking, the most common form of depression is what we call agitated depression. Many people also share how they will feel tired all day, feeling discouraged and completely unmotivated, but then at night they can not sleep because their mind keeps buzzing about what they did or did not do that day. I even had a patient who struggled to keep his mind from going over every conversation he had that day and how he could have been better, more understanding or less clumsy.
Now not only agitated depression connects anxiety with depression, research shows that this link has more to do with how people with depression and anxiety manage stress. Every time we are bombarded with stress in our lives, those with anxiety and depression tend to deal with that through avoidance. That is, when stress comes our way and we are pushed into our fight, flight or freeze response, we choose the flight.
So you can see that anxiously your obsessions for failure are loaded with fear, while with depression your reflections reflect an intense discouragement, to the point of despair or despair. But in both cases you feel overwhelmed by the lack of confidence in yourself. And that is the real problem behind feeling overwhelmed, which in turn leads to anxiety, depression, or a true combination of these two painful emotions.
In addition, many of the symptoms of depression and anxiety really overlap. These are just some of the symptoms you will see in both diagnoses: sleep disorders, tearing, worry, loss of appetite, loss of sexual desire, lack of motivation, body aches and difficulty concentrating, just to name a few. So it's easy to see why many of us find ourselves moving from depression to anxiety and, often, we experience both at the same time! Or possibly be diagnosed with one when we really only have the other one! But like everything I mention, I always like to finish with what we can do to better control the symptoms. So let's get into that!
