Re: What's Your Definition Of Deression Vs Anxiety

Depression. Okay, first, if you feel "sad", that's a great indicator. But some people, especially men, don't necessarily get sad. Instead they might feel irritable.

Second, a feeling of lack of energy and/or desire.
whereas, with anxiety, you want to do something but it makes you scared or gives you physical symptoms like racing heart.

The problem for me is figuring out the difference between anxiety and hypomania or especially what they call "mixed state", since I have all of them.

I actually don't think medical science has much of a clue unless a person's symptoms fit into a very well-defined category.
