Anxiety - you know you want to do something, but doing anything doesn't make you feel better...<br />
Depression - you don't care about doing anything
Well, I suffer from both, as most people often do. <br />
Depression is a low state of mind. You are sad, disinterested, sleepy alot or you can't sleep at all, low sex drive is a possibility (although not for me), you blame yourself alot, and perhaps even hate or dislike yourself.<br />
Anxiety is, for me, when you get really nervous, your heart beats quickly, your palms begin to sweat, and you panic. Sometimes I will just be sitting and my heart rate will jump for no apparent reason, other than me thinking about stuff, and then I feel like someone is sitting on my chest and struggle to breath.
When I'm anxious I feel like there is too much to do, that the right thing isn't getting done. It's a little like the same feeling as when I have too much caffeine.<br />
Depression is the feeling that no matter what I do, it doesn't matter and I might as well shoot myself to make the world a better place.
Heh, Sxadickt Are you in the healthfield?
Depression is worst..it makes u feel u want to guit..for me its darkness..anxiety is when u cant be calm,sometimes panic too
I don't suffer from either, well maybe I do get anxious once in awhile. I have been told I get frantic... I guess that is a good way to explain anxiety. I have witnessed both and from opinion or from my vantage point this is what I think.. Anxiety is the feeling that there is just to many things on your plate, over whelmed by burdens or chores. The feeling of suffocation.<br />
depression seems to be a darkness that creeps in, gloom that can really not be explained. the feeling of Helplessness, unworthiness, an inner struggle with ones self.
Anxiety comes on very quickly and feels like the world is closing in on you.Then comes feelings of panic. Its that simple.Depression doesn't come and go that quickly.
