What can anxiety and depression do to you?

Individuals with anxiety or depression may have multiple episodes during a day, resulting in an array of symptoms that will impact their personal and social life. Here's how anxiety or depression can affect you:

  1. Feeling sad, hopeless, or empty

  2. Experiencing angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration even over minute issues

  3. Lacking interest in activities you enjoyed doing before, such as hobbies, sports, sex, etc.

  4. Suffering from lack of sleep or too much sleep

  5. Tiredness, lack of energy, reduced appetite, weight loss/weight gain, increased cravings,

  6. Feeling agitated, anxious, or restless

  7. Facing problems at work, school, or in relationships

  8. Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and self-blame

Patients also face difficulties in making decisions or concentrating. Leaving depression or anxiety untreated can lead to severe consequences, including suicide attempts. Individuals with depression or anxiety may require long-term treatment and most people get better with medication, psychotherapy, and counseling.

How can I prevent anxiety and depression?

Unfortunately, they are no definite ways or methods to prevent depression or anxiety. However, few lifestyle changes and strategies can help you stay mentally healthy and emotionally stable over time, such as:

  1. Try to lead a stress-free life by increasing resilience, practicing mindful meditation, and working on boosting your self-esteem

  2. During a crisis, reach out to your loved ones, family, friends, or, even better, a Bay Area anxiety and depression therapist. They can help you tackle your problems effectively and get on with life.

  3. Sign up for a long-term anxiety and panic treatment to prevent relapse of symptoms and ensure a healthier, more stable lifestyle over the years.

Seek treatment for depression or anxiety from a leading Bay Area therapist at the first sign of a problem. Professional help from one of the top therapists in the early stages can help you prevent the mental health condition from worsening.
