In my humble opinion, I think there is array of anxiety types just like depression. And there are different mixes of the two, as well as how thightly they are integrated with each other- like iced coffee vs. a fraphachino (blended)
My personal examples:
1- Anxiety of emptiness/loneliness that makes me anxious to get out & do something, but most of the time I have the depression that makes me not want to. (sometimes it's one or the other, and the mixed=sucks) Side note- the 1st week I took Adderall, I felt great & motivated - no depression or anxiety. Did it work on both? (Adderall caused a lot of cycling for me)
And there's my recent experieces that seemed to work the 1st time(not the 2nd): Anxious/emptiness w/ depression/no motivation. Took a xanax, and they were all gone (well mostly gone)Did the xanax work on both, or did one trump the other?
2- My experience has mostly been depression with maybe a lesser anxiety, but when I had full-blown anxiety...pure hell. Still had depression, but anxiety won if there was a contest. Pit in my stomach, nerves were on fire, for no reason.

Obviously you can have one without the other. And obviously you can have both. But it also interests me how there are overlaps in Depression, Anxiety, Aggitation, ADD, and Mania.
I have pieces of ADD. I can't sit or do the same thing for very long- it starts to agitate me. But I can organize. So can I take the 'A' from ADD? I qualify for the all of depression = 'DEPRESSION'. I'd say I qualify for "ANXI" for anxiety. I know they consider Aggitation a part of mania, but I've sure never had anything that sounded like Mania to me. So I'm going to add a "AGG". A D E P R E S S I O N A N X I A G G is my diagnosis

Anyway...while we are on the subject, how is Depersonalization in the anxiety category? I don't feel any anxiety during or before I get it. In a way it's kind of relaxing.
