Depression, anxiety or denial: Which one are you suffering?

Denial is an amazing thing, isn’t it?


It’s a bit like hindsight, because it’s only when you look back that you can acknowledge something for what it really was.


And you may be shocked to hear you have depression or anxiety. I know I was.


As far as I knew, I had never experienced anxiety or depression. In my early years though, I did have a lot of feelings of confusion and stress.


I didn’t know what anxiety felt like

When I look back now, having dealt with my issues, I understand that what I was actually experiencing then was serious anxiety.


I just didn’t know what it was. And neither do a lot of people, I believe.


I was in my early 30s, I was a mother to a small baby and I was having relationship issues with my partner at the time, and just coping like I always had.


But my weight suffered, even though I was eating healthy and well because I was breast feeding at the time. When I look back at old photos of myself from then… OMG, I was so thin! And I didn’t even realise.


Somehow, I just coped and struggled through it.


But was I coping or was it DENIAL?


I didn’t know how to ask for help because I was too self-conscious and independent at the time. What would people think of me?


Our mind will use denial as a way of protecting us from what it thinks we can’t emotionally handle.


It might help us in the situation at the time, but in the long run if we don’t address the actual issue it will do more harm than good.


It will affect our mind, which affects our body, and it can impact on relationships and our everyday life in a negative way.

Mental health disorders don’t discriminate

Mental health figures in Australia show that depression and anxiety in youth and adults is increasing each year.


Symptoms don’t discriminate between genders and age, what job we do or what’s happening at home.


Some symptoms of depression and anxiety are overwhelming feelings of stress, tired most of the time, confusion, lacking motivation, not feeling good enough, nervousness, agitation and continued sadness.


They vary between each person.


Acknowledging if you have these painful issues is the first step to getting help for yourself and changing your life.
