Depressed Anxiety Is a Common Illness, So Why Is It Relatively Unheard Of

It is difficult to find out how common depressed anxiety is. One reason is that it is a fairly new illness in a sense that the public has just accepted it as being part of their lives. Society in general has only recently started talking about mental disorders. There are also proliferations of centers that help people with this kind of disorder. There is a stigma when it comes to seeking the help of a professional. People can be labeled as someone who is disturbed and abnormal if they seek medical treatment related to this disorder.

Another reason is the fact that there are people who refused to seek medical help. For those who do, they are often given the wrong diagnosis. There are different kinds of anxiety disorder. Depression and anxiety are often linked together. It is hard to know if depressed anxiety is common or becoming less known. There are older studies that describe depressed anxiety differently so it is hard to compare it with recent ones.

For people who are feeling and experiencing anxiety depression symptoms, it would be helpful if they seek immediate help right away. This should not be taken lightly because it may reach a point where there is a need for longer treatment. Chances are it would get worst if there is no immediate action. If it does, it can increase. There would be a point where a person might attempt suicide when dealing with the situation.

The most common symptom is having low energy. There is lack of enthusiasm in doing everyday things. This is usually felt even if you are trying your best to feel energized. It is a fact that low energy leads to low motivation. Another symptom of anxiety is exhaustion. Even if you have not performed any physical exercise, you might feel tired and mentally burdened. As a result, you will not be able to do your daily activities. Even if you have hours of sleep, you might still feel tired.
Trembling and shaking hands are also common for a depressed anxiety victim.

The reason for this is the fact that they are fearful of a lot of things. The body will then be flooded with chemicals like adrenalin that puts the body in high alert state. Disturbed sleeping habits are also common as well. One might be affected with nightmares. Other symptoms include worrying too much, feeling isolated, irritable, guilty, panic without reason; these are just some common symptoms that you should watch out for. If these symptoms are affecting your life, it is best to take note of it and look for appropriate treatment.

The symptoms may be harmful especially if they are not treated right away. It can lead to extreme negative feeling like hopelessness. People who suffer from this condition may find themselves losing direction and in the process won’t be able to get treatment. A friend or family member is maybe his or her best chance for help. There is nothing best than getting back to your normal life after undergoing treatment procedures.
