Depression or anxiety?

Its been more than 3 or 4 months with this feeling.

Sometimes when im busy i forget about it , but when im just staying or in bed i think only bad things.

Like i have a bad sickness, or my heart will stop and I’ll die.

I even worry for my family or bf , or even my bf dog.

I get so scared that im about to cry each time i think em.

I feel like everything hurts, ribs,belly,stomach,chest,face,

I feel very week and tired by all this thinking.

Idk what should i do.

Hi KcTl,

Thanks for sharing in your blog.

Depression and anxiety disorders are different, but people with depression often experience symptoms similar to those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, and problems sleeping and concentrating.

Each disorder has its own causes and its own emotional and behavioral symptoms.

It is possible to have combinations of both. This may be called a "comorbid" condition when you suffer from both conditions simultaneously, leading people them wonder "which one do I have?". This article explains the differences.

You should always see your doctor to rule out any physical health symptoms. Together you can work out a treatment plan for your mental health. This may include some psychotherapy and/or medication, usually starting with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI).
