Symptoms of depression & chronic anxiety disorders

The signs of depression and chronic anxiety disorders aren’t always easy to spot – many people live with them for years without even knowing it. Some of the symptoms are common to both conditions, while others are specific to each one.

Some of the symptoms shared by both conditions:

  • Feeling tired or having little energy most of the day, every day
  • Changes in your sleeping pattern
    (e.g. having a lot of trouble falling/staying asleep)
  • Having trouble concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
  • Feeling agitated or irritable every day

While these symptoms overlap, depression and chronic anxiety disorders that differ.
