Hi there, it is Kitt. I have Anxiety and Depression.....which came first.........I don't know. when I get anxious I start to feel depressed as I hate the feeling of anxiety. However, when I wake up and I am feeling really sad or depressed then I start to cry and get anxious as I don't know what to do to stop the sad feelings.
Your racing thoughts sounds a bit like obsession or obsessive thoughts.
Obessive/Compulsive disorder is consider a anxiety disorder.
However I have also read that you can be Bipolar with only having one episode of being manic somewhere in your background. We do have the bipolar forum too.
You may want to do some reading on that forum.
I wsh you luck with your physician. Also please feel free to join us whenever.
