      Do you have RLS as well? My leg bounces often but I like to think it is more like a dog wagging it's tail. I bounce my leg when I am happy or thinking about something. Others comment about it but to me it is normal as breathing.

      Thanks Mischief, Now I know that I only has anxiety at the time of exams and results.

      But most of the time I have encountered with depression.

      Default Anxiety and Depression: Which one do I have?

      To me I see it as how I am coping with the problems in daily life and also biological side of depression and anxiety. To me I also see it as something I live with and I am not aiming to clinically recovered just at the level where I can cope a little better with life challenges.

      Hmm...is there really a distinction? I mean, you can have depression without anxiety but can you even have anxiety without depression? If you can, I don't think I've ever experienced it! I was diagnosed with anxiety but I would have ticked more boxes on the depression bit of that article than for anxiety. I've always seen my anxiety as an 'anxious escape' from my depression - i.e. I am anxious that I won't be able to escape my depression. If I give up trying to make things better then my anxiety disappears, but I get more depressed.
      Have overcome anorexia, bulimia, social phobia, agoraphobia, panic disorder, depression and GAD. No longer diagnosable (I don't think), but trying to overcome the shame that underlay it all...

      I have just been on a course Understanding Depression and Anxiety and you can definitely have both together. Anxiety is often a reaction to situations you find unpleasant so you get panic attacks, shaking and leg wobbling. Depression is more when you have feelings of not wanting to take part in life so you don't want to get up or go out and in extreme cases have self harm and suicidal thoughts.

      I would say almost opposite symptoms, so hard to mix... but one has likely both anxiety and depression for what ever reason. I guess that you call manic depression at certain point... In any case diagnoses feel bit moot when root issues aren't helped by some basic label.

      Ipdorch54, you hit the nail on the head there. I definitely feel like i suffer with both anxiety and depression. I generally have no motivation to do anything but sleep but can also have severe panic attacks with situations that are unpleasant.

      Oh hello everyone by the way. I am new, probably should of started with that!

      Thanks for this. The depression and anxiety descriptions are pretty much exactly me.
