Occasionally feeling nervous or anxious is perfectly normal. Most of us feel some level of anxiety even in our day to day lives. However, when these feelings become excessive or persistent, they can have a severe and negative impact on your physical and mental well being.
When people with intense or ongoing anxiety don’t get help, they may experience episodes of intense fear or terror that are out of proportion to actual danger. This is commonly referred to as a “panic attack,” and it can have serious implications. Feelings of anxiety and panic can interfere with your daily activities, such as by causing you to go out of your way to avoid things that trigger your nerves. Anxiety can even disrupt your personal relationships or career goals.

Painful life experiences will make just about anyone feel down. However, if you persistently feel sad and have found that you’ve lost interest in things you once enjoyed, you may be experiencing depression.
Depression is much more than just feeling sad. It changes how you think, feel, and behave. You may struggle to perform day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel like it’s not even worth getting out of bed in the morning. If left untreated, depression can lead to a variety of other emotional and physical health problems.
Depression is not a sign of weakness, nor is it something someone can just bounce back from after having a few good days. It’s a medical condition that may require long-term treatment. If you’re experiencing regular episodes of sadness, hopelessness or irritability, you may be experiencing depression. Other common symptoms include fatigue, lack of concentration, or frequent and pervasive negative thoughts. If you are experiencing these symptoms, reach out to a mental health professional immediately.
