Anxiety is often related to feelings of stress and worry, and can have a lasting and crippling effect. Often, stress comes to us as a response to a situation where we are placed under pressure, however, those stressful feelings will more than likely disappear. Anxiety is different in that these feelings do not go away and are more difficult to control.
It is common to feel anxious when coming in contact with an object or situation that an individual is scared of, such as spiders or heights. Some people react in more extreme ways than others when faced with these fears and this is called a phobia. A phobia can cause intense feelings of panic and terror and the individual will often exaggerate the danger they feel like they are facing. Phobias are linked to anxiety in that they can be associated with panic attacks and can hinder an individual’s everyday activities and quality of life.
Depression, like anxiety, is an extension of the common feelings we normally feel but in an extremely heightened state. While everyone feels sad or moody from time to time, those suffering from depression often experience long periods of disconsolate sadness where they feel miserable, often for no apparent reason. Depression can have a serious impact on an individual’s mental and physical well being and it is important to seek out the right treatment and support for anyone suffering through difficult times.
