Understanding Anxiety.

Living with an anxiety disorder is an awful condition – the symptoms, though unique to each kind of disorder – can interfere with creating and maintaining personal relationships, seeking and earning professional success, and in some cases, can even be physically debilitating.

Why Anxiety and depression never occur alone.

Anxiety and depression never occur alone because, as we know, in almost every case we see both of them in anyone who indicates he or she is experiencing either depression or anxiety. They are what I call “the ugly twins.” Who could say that either of these emotions would be something that anyone would want to experience, whether occasionally or on an ongoing basis? Undoubtedly, they cause more problems than we can adequately assess with our clinical tools. Anxiety and depression bring each of us our own personal level of pain, whether physical or emotional, and no scale or clinical evaluation may effectively capture the degree to which we suffer. They are as personal as physical pain; they are totally subjective. Read More »
