Anxiety Depression Syndrome

There is no escaping anxiety depression syndrome by way of gender, age, or race. It can strike anyone, anytime, anywhere. Of course, there are a few lifestyle choices an individual can make to greatly decrease their chances of being afflicted. But for the public at large, everyone is fair game. This article will discuss a few interesting facts about anxiety depression syndrome that everyone should be aware of. This will help you understand the condition better, and may provide you with something that can help if you're already suffering from chronic anxiety and/or depression.

Q: What is the worst thing a person can do if they think they may be afflicted with anxiety?
A: Nothing.

An alarming number of individuals, knowing full well that something isn't right, will go on attempting to live their lives normally. Ignoring the feelings and symptoms associated with this condition can be incredibly dangerous. For starters, this disorder has claimed lives. Left untreated, there have been many cases of individuals who simply couldn't take their internal turmoil and resorted to suicide as a means of escape. This is not to suggest that you would personally go this route, but it has happened.

The two primary things that generally separate individuals with normal, healthy amounts of anxiety or depression from people with a debilitating condition are the severity of the symptoms coupled with their persistence and duration. Obviously, the severity is important, but not everyone has anxiety so intense that they can't interact with others or face the real world. However, it may be wearing them down slowly because it just won't let up. Kind of like being “softly” punched in one area of your body over and over and over again.

Of course, no matter how extreme or persistent the anxiety depression syndrome may be, there are still countless individuals who fail to seek professional help, either medical treatment or psychological support. I would assert that this is because the condition itself prevents them from doing so. They are literally too anxious and depressed to go get help for their anxiety and depression. It truly is a catch 22.

There are things that an individual with this affliction can do to improve their symptoms at least enough to be able to follow through with seeking out professional help. And what tops the list of effective anxiety and depression treatments? Exercise! When you work up a nice sweat, either with aerobics, weights, or a combination of these, you get your endorphins flowing, your muscular tension absolved, and your overall stress lowered dramatically.
