We all feel some anxious or depressed at different times during our lives. Depression can range from feeling unhappy or sad for short periods, to a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, and anger are persistent for longer periods of time.

Anxiety and depression become a problem if you feel so anxious or down that it interferes with your normal day-to-day activities.
