Before starting this blog related to anxiety and depression and their causes. Let’s take a look at exactly what does anxiety and depression mean and look or feel like. In this write-up, I’ll discuss anxiety & depression and their causes and effects. Let’s have a look!
Causes And Effects of Anxiety & Depression
Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear about what’s to come or happen and to feel fearful and nervous. Ah! From where to begin with depression is a serious medical illness that affects how you feel, the way you think, and how you act. Depression causes feelings of sadness and loss of interest in things or activities you once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.
Fortunately, it is also treatable.
What Is Depression And What Can I Do About It?
Sadness, feeling down, and loss of interest can be major causes. But if it persists and affects our lives substantially the issue may be depression. A person with depression may experience persistent sadness. Depression also known as Major Depressive Disorder, is a mood disorder that makes you feel constantly sad or lack interest in life. But when intense sadness including feeling helpless, hopeless, and worthless – lasts for many days or two weeks and keeps you from living your life, it may be something more than sadness. You could have Clinical Depression too, but that too is a treatable medical condition.
Is Depression And Anxiety Curable?
To be honest… there’s no cure the symptoms might go over time, but the condition won’t until or unless you work and figure it out and mentally prepare yourself to get rid of it with care and treatment you can remission and live and enjoy a long healthy life.
