  • Depression and Anxiety as the “Fraternal Twins”
    • Depression and Anxiety are sometimes called “fraternal twins.” Many depressed individuals also suffer from anxiety and many anxious individual suffers from depression. An anxious person has high level of negative (anxious) emotion, that leads to avoidance and paralyzing. While depression in depressed individual is manifested in low positive emotions. The results of low positive emotions is lack of interest, motivation, without the ability to see the reward in acting or doing anything. Despite that depressed individuals wants to enjoy activities and life, it is hard for them to do so as physiologically the depression is a highly stressed state. Depression is not a weakness nor is it something that you simply just “snap out of.” You can deal with depression or deal with its consequences.Depression and anxiety disorders are different, but people with depression often experience symptoms similar to those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, and problems sleeping and concentrating. But each disorder has its own causes and its own emotional and behavioral symptoms. Many people who develop depression have a history of an anxiety disorder earlier in life. There is no evidence one disorder causes the other, but there is clear evidence that many people suffer from both disorders. In other cases anxiety is accompanied by depression and vice versa. Depression and anxiety may lead to having panic attacks. Any lack of control within our lives can contribute to anxiety and depression.Sometimes an issue that is causing the depression is also causing anxiety (for example in the case of bereavement). In such cases the resolution of the underlying cause, for example learning to cope with the grief and move forward, will be more than likely to resolve the accompanying anxiety.Often, people who have a long term anxiety disorder become depressed by the limits the anxiety (or indeed panic attacks) place on their lives. The depression in this case would best be lifted by getting over the anxiety. The depressed person may tell themselves that there is no way out, that they will never get over their problems and be able to do the things they used to do. By proving these thoughts wrong, even if they only do it bit by bit, they can have great success with the depression. The main issue for them then would be to find a solution to their anxiety that works. That said, the issue of anxiety and depression is something of a chicken and an egg. It is wise therefore to treat both the depression and the anxiety simultaneously. The standard treatment for anxiety and depression is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy treatment (CBT) and in sever cases, it might be needed to supplement it with medication.
