Depression & Anxiety
Many of us will experience a period of depression and/or anxiety at some point in our lives. And these moods will pass, usually over time. But for others, depression and anxiety can become all-consuming and often debilitating.
Depression and anxiety seem to be related. Many people who are suffering from depression, also suffer from anxiety. And the fear of failure plays a big role. Depressive people know the fear of having made big, uncorrectable mistakes in their lives and blame themselves.
Depressive signs and symptoms include:
- Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness
- Loss of interest in friends and activities
- Constant tiredness
- Changes in sleep and attitude
- Inability to control negative thoughts
With anxiety, the mind is filled with all kinds of fears — from being abandoned by a partner to losing of friends, acquaintances and close relatives. A fear of loneliness is generated and a general fear of the future is created.
Anxiety signs and symptoms include:
- Having a sense of danger or panic
- Feeling nervous and powerless
- Sweating and trembling
- Feeling weak and tired
- Having trouble thinking about anything but the current fear
