For people who live with anxiety and depression, one of the hardest things to do is to explain to someone how you feel. The feeling of depression is an odd feeling and only the ones who have experienced it can attempt to describe it. Anxiety and depression can affect a person more than just mentally. It can cause physical aches and pains.
In order to receive care for any condition, you have to be able to identify it. A doctor cannot simply listen through a stethoscope and diagnose an individual with depression, so it can be difficult to diagnose. Those suffering from the conditions usually have a hard time describing it. However, people have the ability to relate to others about specific topics, making diagnosis easier. Awareness is crucial when it comes to these patients and I found a comic that perfectly describes living with depression and anxiety. The comic is by Nick Seluk.
