In brief: Anxious Depression?

Or maybe a bipolar type of anxious depression? Is this a new problem? Is there loss of energy, drive and motivation? Are the mood swings random or are they caused by stress you can identify? Severe anxiety alone can cause most of those symptoms.
Concentration is generally not good in anxiety and depression. Talk to your physician or see a counselor for an evaluation. They can help you solve it.
