There is a saying that if you have depression it’s terrible, but if you have anxiety and depression together, it’s akin to living in hell.
Would you agree?
If you have ever suffered from both then you will know that it really does feel like there is nowhere to turn. Every single day is filled with doubt, upset, worry, dark thoughts, and clouds which never seem to lift.
We’re not painting a pleasant picture, are we?
That’s because in this situation, there really is nothing pleasant about it.
Many people live with anxiety, simply thinking that they are overly sensitive, they worry too much, and perhaps that they need to chill out. This isn’t the case. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is one of the most common conditions across the entire world, let alone the USA. This can take the form of constant worry, thoughts blowing totally out of proportion, ideas which aren’t at all helpful or pleasant, and a general feeling of not understanding whether the thoughts in your head are real, due to anxiety, or paranoia. When someone has severe GAD, or any type of anxiety syndrome, life is full of worry.
The problem is that when you are constantly on high alert for situations, due to worry and overthinking, you are putting yourself at a high risk of serious health conditions. For instance, you might be raising your blood pressure without even realizing it, putting yourself at a very high risk of depression alongside your anxiety, cutting yourself off from those around you and social situations, avoiding taking opportunities that come your way, because you’re terrified of the risk. You might not be sleeping, your appetite has gone south, and you feel like your heart is constantly in your mouth, thumping away in your ears. Life is dark, it is always negative, and you can’t see any hope on the horizon.
Anxiety isn’t just worrying a little too much, and it’s not about being too sensitive.
