Anxiety & Depression
Life can sometimes feel overwhelming and out of control – losing a job, choices our spouse or kids have made, financial setbacks, medical problems, and many other examples. It is not uncommon in challenging times for people to struggle with anxiety and/or depression. Actually, most everyone experiences some level of anxiety and depression, so how does one know when to seek counseling? Some of the common signs of anxiety are restlessness, feeling keyed up or on edge, difficulty concentrating, fixating on problems, irritability, muscle tension, and sleep disturbance (difficulty falling or staying asleep). Some of the common signs of depression are feeling sad, discouraged, hopeless, unmotivated, fatigued, or disinterested in life in general. When these feelings of depression or anxiety begin to interfere with daily activities such as going to work or school, taking care of family, or spending time with friends, it is probably time to seek help.
