Unfortunately, there is no easy solution like taking a blood test or doing physical examinations to diagnose anxiety or depression. Thus, it would be best if you relied on a health practitioner to match your feelings and symptoms to a comprehensive list of your symptoms for each condition.

I blamed myself for my sister's accident when we were young. After she passed away, I withdrew from myself, and it affected me later in my life as I became older. So I decided to go for anxiety and depression therapy as it took over my life. I am now taking baby steps to recovery and slowly getting out there to live my life."
