Anxiety or Depression: Which is the Worst Experience?

Community Member

Hi everyone

I have been thinking about how many of us who suffer from depression also have problems with anxiety as well.   If you had to choose which condition causes you the most anguish, dysfunction, and hardship...which would you choose?

Which is worse in your have anxiety or depression?

I am going to have to say anxiety for me.   Anxiety is so immediate and in your face.   When my anxiety is bad I am probably less functional than when I am depressed.   I quite often feel as well, that many people understand depression, but they don't know what to do for you when you feel anxious.   But that has just been my experience.

How about you?   Which is worse for you?
