can anxiety cause depression?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have anxiety, and I just feel so low all the time, and very angry! When I'm upset I get so angry that I just wanna trash my room ( I don't do it) but I just get this overwhelming feeling that nothing is gonna get better, it's horrible just wondering if anxiety causes this?

    Honey Anxiety n depression are BFFS!! I'd already had depression for years but when anxiety hit it all got worse. When the two meet they screw you over good. They love each other's company.

    Hi Sweet

    Ive had depression for 16 years the anxiety only started 4 months ago and YES

    I feel like shouting and throwing things because it is so frustrating.

    There is rhyme or reason to it just when you think you have got rid one symptom another comes along. 

    I know how you feel and so do most of the people on this forums.

    Stay strong ma darlingbiggrin

    Dont know why that was moderated

    I have had depression for 16 years anxiety only started 4 months ago and yes its frustrating and makes me very angry.

    There is no rhyme or reason to it and just when you think you have got rid of one symptom another appears.

    Stay Strong

    Anxiety and depression are two sides of the same coin, one doesn't exist without the other

      It's the same condition, it just presents differently. Essentially if your treated for anxiety or depression by a therapist, they will always treat the depression, the anxiety is more of a byproduct. For me anxiety is always worse, but I know depression is the underlying problem, it just presents as anxiety

    I have read many of your posts and i think obtaining a really good therapist would be most helpful for you. You need better guidance and some tools to get a handle on all that is occuring inside of you. They have medicine too if needed.
