Anxiety And Depression Are A Big Problem

May 30, 2008
Most of us do experience occasional outbreaks of anxiety or momentary depression, at least once or twice in our lifetime. Anxiousness, changing or swinging moods, shifting metal attitude and a short term depression are all so common to millions of people all over the world. Low intensity anxiety and depression also work as positive parameters, when we can prepare for a pending task or take precious time to reflect on our actions, and regroup our effort in order to get success in life.

Thus, anxiety and depression are a common part of our lives, often more helpful than overtly harmful. But, when anxiety and depression seem to crop up out of nowhere, persist for many months without providing much relief, or if it interferes with daily life, then youre probably suffering from a grave illness or a permanent symptom that needs to be dealt with.

Anxiety and depression are among the most prevalent and highly treatable forms of mental disease in the whole world today. People who are suffering from acute anxiety display a varied degree of symptoms, which range from trembling, muscle aches, intense sweating, dizziness, extreme fatigue, jumping heart and dry mouth.

But, anxiety disorder is much more serious than it is generally assumed to be, just because, people who are suffering from such a malady become practically disabled, both mentally and physiologically, making their life practically a living hell. Anxiety and its symptoms can be categorized into many types and one must realize that it is very common disorder, treatable by many modern treatment techniques.

Depression is possibly one of the most common mental conditions in the world today and almost 150 million people suffer from symptoms of depression. It is estimated that roughly one in four women and one in ten men can easily be diagnosed with depression, at some point in their lives, though very often it goes undiagnosed and usually disappears on it's own accord. They may not even know that what they are experiencing are symptoms of a treatable illness. Most visible signs of depression are often associated with that of daily work, when people tend to neglect even the most common of daily work like brushing their teeth.

Other visible signs include intense sadness, helplessness, irritability and uncontrolled outbursts of anger. One of the most dangerous side signs is probably the tendency to think about commiting suicide. Associated symptoms like memory lapses, slurred speech and lack of neuromuscular movement are not uncommon in the later and advanced stages of depression.

Anxiety and depression outbreaks can occur at any age and time. Most of these patients are usually very stubborn and often never believe that they are affected by the illness. Advanced stages of anxiety and depression require frequent hospitalization and intensive medical care and supervision. Unattended depression can also lead to further serious medical complications like psychosis, schizophrenia and mental disorder. However, proper medical care and regular counseling will help patients to recover from the ordeals of anxiety and depression.
