By Sarah RaparoliLex Kleren Switch to German for original article

What depression, anxiety disorders or panic attacks feel like is usually only known by those affected themselves. The Lëtzebuerger Journal asked three people to explain how they experience them, how their everyday life is affected and what techniques and methods have helped them.
