Not at all! I personally went through horrible bouts of anxiety recently and I wasnt depressed but it certainly doesnt help when you are. :( Anxiety is a horrible thing and Im still anxious every now and then, but you just have to keep your head up! It WILL get BETTER! :)

I agree with kb107.  Depression does not always have to be present with anxiety.  I have a lot of anxiety due to PTSD disorder but am not always depressed.

I quit smoking a year ago. Talk about anxiety! I still wake up sometimes during the night with a bout of it. Not fun. I just go with it and reassure myself this too shall pass.
