Everyone experiences sadness or low mood from time to time, but these feelings generally fade with time. Depression is distinct from a major depressive disorder or clinical depression. It can produce severe symptoms that impair how you feel, think, and handle everyday tasks like sleeping, eating, and working. If you are experiencing any symptoms of depression get yourself checked.
Anxiety is something that everyone experiences from time to time. When confronted with difficulty at work, before taking an exam, or before making a major choice, you may experience anxiety. Anxiety disorders, on the other hand, are more than just transient anxiety or dread. Anxiety does not go away in those who have anxiety disorders, and it might become worse with time. It is better to get your anxiety treatments done before it starts to affect your health, work or family life.

My husband drinks daily, how can I help him to stop?
Coming out of an alcohol addiction can be difficult and a stressful process. Few people tend to quit alcohol soon, but for others it becomes a part of their routine and the process of quitting seems impossible also due to the withdrawal symptoms. If the person is heavily addicted, visiting a hospital for detoxification is recommended. So the doctors can help in quitting alcohol through counseling and medication. It is important that during this process the family stand as a support, both emotionally and mentally.
Who is likely to get affected by depression?
According to many research studies, it is a disease that can strike anyone of any age, colour, income, culture, or academic level. Depression is thought to be caused by genetic, biochemical, environmental, and psychological factors. Other mental diseases and ailments, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and chronic pain, can also cause depression. Depression can exacerbate these issues, and vice versa. Medication for some medical conditions can sometimes create adverse effects that exacerbate depressive symptoms or lead to new onset depressive state.
