Are You Suffering from Anxiety or Depression?

Part of the Anxiety & Depression Workbook For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

  • I worry all the time.

  • I feel like a complete and utter failure.

  • My appetite isn’t what it should be.

  • I feel like I can’t catch my breath.

  • I don’t look forward to anything.

  • I’m a very nervous sort of person.

  • I just can’t think clearly at all.

  • I feel guilty a lot of the time.

  • I’m not interested in doing anything.

  • I feel hopeless.

  • *I have loads of fears.

  • My sleep is disturbed.

  • I’ve been having thoughts about death lately.

  • I avoid friends and social situations.

  • I can’t make decisions about anything.

  • I don’t have any energy lately.

  • My mood has been really low.

  • Sometimes I feel panicky.
