Depression is a lot more than unhappiness and sadness.
It is a matrix of negative emotions, which may include any or all of the following.
  • Loneliness
  • Worthlessness
  • Hopelessness
  • Despair
  • Regret
  • Anxiousness
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Self Loathing
and more.
Around 80 per cent of people who suffer from depression also suffer from anxiety.
There are also correlations between insomnia and anxiety and depression.
Grief and bereavement are a normal reaction for us, including pets. It will normally dissolve away in a few weeks or months.
If it continues grief may need treatment to resolve it.
Almost everyone experiences anxiety and depression from time-to-time and often at the same time. However, ‘clinical’ depression and anxiety are less common. They can usually be successfully treated with appropriate lifestyle changes, balanced nutrition, exercise, psychotherapy.
To feel persistent worry and stress about nothing in particular may indicate an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety can exist at different levels, ranging from concern and worry through to stress and anxiety, and in extreme cases anxiety attacks and panic attacks.
Sometimes people attempt to self-medicate with alcohol and other drugs in a futile attempt to overcome the problem. They usually only make matters worse for themselves and everyone around them.
Fear and anxiety symptoms can often be temporarily treated with drugs, such as the commonly prescribed benzodiazepines,  which include Valium (diazepam),  Xanax (alprazolam),  Klonopin (clonazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam).
However,  the side effects can cause severe problems,  such as drowsiness and addiction.  I have had clients come to me who have been prescribed these drugs by their doctors to ‘treat’ their phobia.
They have found through years of suffering that these drug therapies only treat the symptoms,  and not the cause.  They are only coping mechanisms and never overcome the problem.
The risks of addiction to anti-anxiety drugs such as Valium is very real.  No benzodiazepine medication can be considered safe for all people.
It is important to review all of your medications with your prescribing doctor from time-to-time.  It is never a good idea to quit any medication without first consulting a doctor.
