Anxiety can have different effects. It may create unpleasant emotions or sensations. It may prompt you to avoid certain places or situations. Anxiety can also cause distraction or irritability, affecting work performance, or creating relationship strain. Depression may include difficulty sleeping, feelings of numbness, slowed body or mind response, and even thoughts of suicide. If you or your loved one struggle with anxiety or depression symptoms, Dr. Scott Griffies, MD, DFAPA and Dory Simonsen, LCSW offer help and hope for you.
