Experiencing anxiety and depression at the same time is very common. Nearly one-half of those diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Most people have feelings of anxiety or depression at times. Grief, loss of a job, divorce, illness, moving, financial worries and other stressors can lead to feelings of sadness, worry, frustration, and loneliness. These are normal reactions to difficult life situations. The feelings associated with events such as these may be addressed by talking to a counselor or visiting your doctor. When these feelings interfere with your ability to enjoy your daily life, complete necessary tasks or affect interpersonal relationships, discussing your anxiety and/or depression with a professional may be really helpful.
