I have suffered from depression and anxiety for years. I'm not on any medications. Feel okay but. I try to look after myself by eating well and trying to sleep well. At one stage, I couldn't or wouldn't sleep for days on end.
At the moment though I am starting to experience the beginning of some anxiety again (about the future) and sometimes some people make me very nervous. I feel burdened by this mood and am starting to avoid people. On the other hand, I know from past experience that too much avoidance leads to worse symptoms i.e. depression, lack of self-esteem etc.
