yah, I think its just more people experience it/ its become more "OK" to talk about and admit to having. I hate all pill commericals. I think it its fearmongering and panders to the paranoid and uneducated. I know we have to advocate for ourselves since lord knows doctors like to blow you off, but pharmaceuticals make enough money by buying off doctors- they don't need to prey on us, too. But no, the levels of anxiety and depression that those commercials are talking about are the kind that inhibit your ability to function in society. I have ADD with mild anxiety so if I have something to do and I don't know where to start (a common ADD issue), I can freeze up and feel anxiety that makes it even harder to function. So stuff like that isn't normal. We all get that here and there, though.
