Anxiety And Depression: Fraternal Twins

Anxiety, stress, and depression can nestle their way into our lives in several different ways. This is totally normal. Stressful work environments, relationship issues, grief, frustration, loneliness and worry all cause anxiety and depression at some points in our lives. That said, it’s important that we know how to handle them when they arise.

Even though no one knows the precise link between anxiety and depression, it is known that they tend to occur together. In one recent study, 85% of those diagnosed with major depressive disorder were also deemed to have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and about 35% showed signs of panic disorder. On top of this, other anxiety disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have been correlated to depression. Because they are such common causes, anxiety and depression have become known as the “fraternal twins” of mood disorders. 

Some people experience anxiety and depression without any known triggers, making tasks such as getting to work on time, staying focused throughout the day, self-care, etc. very difficult challenges. This can certainly be frustrating, as unpredictable mood swings and invasive emotions can interfere with a persons’ day-to-day quality of life and productivity.
