Now it seems the depression is setting in. Maybe a little less anxiety, but more depression. But less anxiety is better. I'll see how it goes.
I just added a title to your post.  Thx Gail (mod) I took out the blank space...  :), Kitt

Mark, It is very common to have depression and anxiety. The disorders are two sides of the same coin. Over the past couple of years, clinicians and researchers alike have been moving toward a new conclusion: Depression and anxiety are not two disorders that coexist. They are two faces of one disorder.

Are you anxious or are you depressed? In the world of mental health care, where exact diagnosis dictates treatment, anxiety and depression are regarded as two distinct disorders. But in the world of real people, many suffer from both conditions. In fact, most mood disorders present as a combination of anxiety and depression. Surveys show that 60-70% of those with depression also have anxiety. And half of those with chronic anxiety also have clinically significant symptoms of depression.

Just my 2 cents worth today.  :)

We have a depression forum also if you would like to post there.

Many of the meds used to treat anxiety are the antidepressants drugs.

I hope you re following up with our physician.

Take care.
