A third commented: "That's a good way to put it - depressive past and anxious future. Exactly like that."
And on the subject of anxiety - yesterday a TikTok user explained the science behind a 'hangxiety'.
If you've ever woken up after a night of boozing with a weird anxious feeling you can't seem to shift Sophie Ward, who shares content on YouTube and TikTok as Soph's Notes, has shared a video explaining why that might be.
In the clip, Sophie talks us through the 'chemical changes' that take place, which affect how your brain works.
She says: "If you've ever felt super anxious when you're hungover, then don't worry, a lot of people do.
"Hangxiety is a real thing caused by real chemical changes in your brain.
"When you drink, chemicals in your brain are affected, namely glutamate and GABA [Gamma aminobutyric acid].
"These normally have opposing effects on the brain - glutamate making it more active, and GABA making it less active."
She continues: "Drinking alcohol simultaneously increases the amount of chill GABA we have whilst decreasing the amount of wired glutamate.
"This means your brain is acting in super slow mo, giving you slower reactions and lower inhibitions.
"The morning after your brain tries to rebalance - it becomes super sensitive to glutamate, which makes it hyperactive and you anxious, while becoming less sensitive to GABA, which would normally step in to chill you out.
"It's basically the reverse of what was happening while you were drinking and is a recipe for hangxiety."
