How Much Is Anxiety Part Of Your Depression? When Does It Show Up And How Do You Deal With It?

How Much Is Anxiety Part Of Your Depression? When Does It Show Up And How Do You Deal With It?

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Anxiety is what triggers my depression, actually. It goes like this: I'll get anxious about something going on in my life, have intrusive thoughts that cause me to obsess over the situation for weeks, then crash. Hard. It's a terrible cycle, and one that I've been determined to learn how to break. Really, it's about figuring out how to stop the cycle before it can get truly started.

It's a huge part of my depression. It shows up in the most random moments, so I never know what triggers it. I usually have to look at pictures of my mom, or blast some music to calm down.

Anxiety is a massive part of my depression and when it shows up the most is when I'm in a new situation i.e. travelling to a new place. I deal with it by going to my calm place in my head until I feel better

It is a big part, but there is no specific times it appears for me. It's just random and often times makes no sense why.
