It seems like sometimes when I feel depressed I am less anxious. Because I think that nothing really matters. Like I don't care what people think as much because it all seems so pointless. I hate my life.

I seem to get depressed after bouts of strong anxiety, like it gets to a point where I can't take the stress anymore and the only thing I can do is to give in and give up so that I lose the anxiety and everything else along with it.

They are seemingly opposite, yet inextricably coupled together in a furtive dance of pain, fear, and shame.

God I hate my life.

Hmmm...interesting notion...you might be on to something here...
Over the last few days I've been really really REALLY anxious, both SA and generalized. I've started obsessing over my anxiety(to the point of having panic attack, which I RARELY have) for the last 24 hours or so. To the point of on the verge of crying.
Had nothing else to do so I sat at my computer to listen to some music. My music is pretty depressing and as I got more and more depressed, my anxiety decreased a little bit

Yeah, this is the same for me. I just figure, "How can I possibly make any more of an imbusel out of myself?" or "I doubt they'll hate me anymore than I hate myself so I don't care."

Sometimes i'm anxious and depressed at the same time but most of the time depression numbs me. I get so apathetic when depressed i don't suffer from anxiety. Often i find it a reflief to be depressed.

I can relate. Many times when i'm either really tired and could give a rats rectum about anything, or just in a downer mood my anxiety dissapates into basic melancoly, and aloofness. I guess like said many times before; the cure is always worse than the disease. Awesome perspective. Thanks for it.

If I'm depressed enough it's like my emotions turn off except for the feeling of being weighed down inside. I'm also more likely to become avoidant so overall I have less anxiety when I'm depressed.

Yes, because when I am depressed, there's a good chance I become angry. Depending on that anger, it's not easy to hide my true feelings.
