For 3 weeks, I have been dealing with anxiety (which I usually experience mostly as chest tightness and floods of negative thoughts). During the few occasional moments where these symptoms subside a bit, the depressive feelings creep in hard. As I have been working hard to do what I need to do to live with this anxiety (any hopefully overcome).. will the depression subside as well? Or is that perhaps a separate issue?
Also.. I read that it helps to write things down. I have been writing a LOT.. many, many pages. I guess it helps me feel slightly better. But EVERYTHING I write is simply specifics about what I am feeling horrible about. Is this the right course of action?
