Hey sweetie, I have both and it is a bit like the chicken and the egg ~ which came first. Usually the anxiety hits first and then I feel bad which leads to feeling depressed. I have anxiety and depression and I am not ashamed of it.
I have accomplished great things in my life and have found much happiness. Sometime it is a struggle but I refuse to give up and just let these disorders run my life. Sometimes I have to slow down and sometimes I have to take a time out but I will always be me. I am a unique person as you are.
Like Karen, I take meds as they work for me even though I may sometimes need to go in for an upgrade on my meds.
Remember, Scythia, Anxiety/Depression are not who you are but what you have .
Hoping your feeling better and know we care.
