  • 1Can i have an anxiety disorder and depression at the same time?

    Hello , this is my first time asking a question , I just wanted to know if I can be depressed and have an anxiety disorder at the same time ? Basically , I've been going to my new counselor for a few weeks , mainly for my anxiety and other issues such as self esteem and confidence . Anyway , we often talk about my anxiety and all that is being in social situations . My counselor also said I have mild to moderate OCD you know it's an anxiety thing . Anyway , I am often concerned about many different things. In my last session , briefly mentioned that i may be depressed . It is not a surprise because I thought I've been depressed for several years . I have very low moods, feelings worthlesness and hopelessness , worthlessness , tired all the time , not interested in anything I liked , and many , almost all symptoms of depression . But the thing is that I'm confused about co - ocurring depression with anxiety . This is because , I thought depression that I do not care , do not want to get up in the morning (which is true for me personally ) . But , when I am extremely anxious about certain things and how people see me ect . So , how I can have both? Probably when I'm anxious some stuff I care , so then there is depression ? Or can my general mood be depressed, and anxious moments when it appears anxiety disorder ? Sorry if I'm rambling , I hope I have explained well, I have 16 years and only needs some explanation , please ? Thank you !

  • 3I suffer from C-PTSD, social anxiety, panic disorder, chronic insomnia and major depression disorder?

    I started seeing a psychologist (I see him every week) at the start of this year and started seeing a psychiatrist about 2 weeks ago. I've been on an array of anti-depressants and a whole bunch of different anxiety meds over the past 6 months. But I still can't see a big improvement. I'm seeing my psychiatrist next week, but right now I just have a general question. For over a year now I have always felt this very strong desire to become intoxicated. Doesn't matter on what substance, I just do not want to feel the way I do. It is especially prominent at night when I am trying to sleep (yet cannot succeed). I disagree with the chronic abuse of drugs, but I can't stop myself from thinking this. Is this normal? Is it ever going to go away? and what can I do to try and help myself right now.

  • 4Hi, Dianne here, age 46, long time sufferer of anxiety/depression.?

    I've upped my Lexapro from 10 mg to 15 mg. I've been on the 15mg for about 3 weeks. Still very depressed, won't go out of the house, can't go to work. Lexaporo's pamphlet says to take 10mg for severe depression. My therapist says that I might need to be on 50 mg? I am afraid of all the weight gain etc. I was on Paxil for 17 years for anxiety with great success, but it stopped working. Anyone have any suggestions.....I really don't want to be on anything. I have such bad symptoms that I can hardly function. I am in a bad marriage and I'm going through memopause. I have a clean bill of physical health???? Any suggestions......I am so afraid of weight gain. Should I give the Lexapro more time......I've been on it since Dec. Hormones are "within range" which sounds silly to me since I'm menopausal???

  • 12Asperger's Syndrome, Anxiety Disorder, Depression?

    I have 15 years , and have had Asperger's Syndrome since she was a child . To me it was obvious , because I did not want to talk to anyone , and had most of the classic symptoms of Asperger syndrome . I have had anxiety all my life , but I never tried until 2009 . I had severe anxiety and 2008 to date , and it's still pretty bad. I worry about everything. I keep ruminating , and can not stop worrying . This has had a major impact on my life , and I also suffer from severe depression , which helps a lot with my medications . What bothers me is anxiety. Why suddenly become severe and stay that way ? My biggest problems are anxiety now , I'm going to CBT , but I feel I will never be the same person you used to be . I feel like I live with severe anxiety for the rest of my life .
