Anxiety & Depression??

Postby KingsleyHere » Mon Sep 02, 2019 7:27 pm

Can anxiety & Depression co-exist or rather rotate? I am not big on dxs. I guess I just never follow the symptoms listed. But had a revelation in therapy & spent days in a I-don't care-about-anything mode. Then suddenly woke this morning & realized the neglect that has caused. Correcting everything. The familiar anxiety is back. Realized this same thing happened a week ago. Depressed for days followed by anxiety & accomplishing things. Keep saying this will even out when work thru therapy revelation. By that I mean get back to the anxiety that's familiar. Is that wishful thinking?

Anxiety and depression often go hand-in-hand. The same meds can be used to treat both at the same time. Combined with good therapy, recovery is possible. Each case is different.
I hope that you can achieve stability. I was treated with BuSpar and Imipramine years ago. There are many newer meds out now.

I have both. For me, it can be like how you described; periods of emptiness and depression, and a sense of relief when it subsides because it feels good to just care about something even if it's rooted in anxiety.
Most of the time for me it's more like, I can't do a thing because I'm too anxious to, then I feel useless and depression sets in.

It is an evil wish, but sometimes part of me almost wishes for depression to the point where you feel nothing, so I will escape my anxiety... mind you, I know I do not really want that, that is a horrible state of being, I had a close friend on here who had that kind of depression. But, sometimes... I just want it to end...

Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also terrifying and confusing.

Let it go.
Without (forum) rules, we all might as well be up in a tree flinging our crap at each other.

For me, overwhelming anxiety often leads to depression.
