Are You Getting Anxious Over Anxiety Depression?

Aug 17, 2007
People who exert too much of their brain power usually exhaust not only their physical strength when engaging in in to many activities, they also tend to over extend their brains up to the point when it becomes plain that they need to take some time out to relax and recharge their batteries. A lot of busy people cannot fathom the idea of relaxing and taking time off from work, as well as their worries, this can result in them having nervous breakdowns, anxiety depression and all sorts of mental illnesses that can cause a person's sanity to go haywire. Fortunately, if you're one of those poor unfortunate ones who are unable to destress and are constantly worried and fussing over things, there are various cures and treatments for treating anxiety depression.

Anxiety depression is actually characterized by all sorts of irregularities and erratic behavior, this is usually due to certain stress triggers that which cause the person to have undue jitters and stress. Also, a lot of people who tend to get easily nervous over stressful activities are prone to having anxiety depression, its just a matter of being strong-willed when it comes to facing difficult and stressful activities. It may be pretty hard to overcome at first, but trying to be calm and cool in times of extreme pressure is what'll actually help to save your mental health from going on a totally downward spiral.

When it comes to effectively curing one's self from a mental illness, one must keep in mind that you have to be actually honest with yourself and assess what kind of depression or mental illness you actually have, go to reputable psychiatrist to get yourself diagnosed correctly and get the right depression treatment for yourself. Here are the various types of depression:

Manic or Bipolar depression - characterized by sudden and extreme changes in one's mood wherein one minute the sufferer is in an elevated state of euphoria,while the next minute (day or week) he or she is in a state of complete depression.

Postpartum depression - this is characterized by a prolonged sadness and a feeling of emptiness which some women experience following child birth. This is usually the result of the physical stress of child birth, and an uncertain sense of responsibility towards the new born baby .

Dysthimia - characterized by a slight similarity with depression, although this time, it's been proven to be a lot less severe, but of course with any case, should be treated immediately.

Cyclothemia - has some similarity with Manic or Bipolar depression wherein the individual suffering from this mental illness may occasionally suffer from severe changes in their mood.

Seasonal Affective Disorder - characterized by falling in a rut only during specific seasons (i.e. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall). Studies however, prove that more people
actually fall in to a rut during the Winter and Fall seasons than at other times of the year.

But the type of depression that has been proven to be quite common among people is anxiety depression. Anxiety Depression is characterized by the state of being overly anxious about things. Anxiety, a supposedly normal behavior that'll actually help a person adjust more to a certain stressful activity, such a first date jitters or a grueling exam the following day. Anxiety actually helps you get psyched up towards facing certain "difficult situations"; anxiety therefore is actually a good thing. Anxiety Depression however, is simply the opposite, not to be easily dismissed as a "case of the nerves"; Anxiety Depression is in actuality an illness that can be caused from the biological makeup of an individual, or in other words, a hereditary illness.

Also, there are actually various types of Anxiety depression, each having its own unique characteristics. Take for example Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD, this kind of Anxiety Depression is a lot more complicated than the average Anxiety Depression, in spite of possibly being a day-to-day habit for those who suffer this kind of Anxiety Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder actually makes the individual more paranoid than usual, anxiety attacks are more frequent, and even absurd at times. Sufferers can even be anxious for no apparent reason. People suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder exhibit a number of symptoms, from lack of sleep, to being unable to relax, getting tired easily, cannot concentrate on what they're doing and even suffering from depression. This kind of Anxiety depression is still curable; just a little work will actually do the trick.

Consult a reputable Cognitive Behavior Therapist who will help by giving the individual the therapy that a sufferer needs to help him or her loosen up, and also prescribe any medication that may help help them to calm them down and relax.
