It does have an affect to a certain extent , it would be helpful if you could show your GP and get the relevant blood tests done for him/her to analyse the levels and suggest diet / medications accordingly

Vitamins and supplements are important as some times our diet and routine does not fulfil the deficiency. You must spend time in the sun and also take the supplements post checking from a GP or your known medical practitioners.

Dear you, Yes vitamin deficiency can have similar symtoms of depression and anxiety but not similar causes.  Step 1 - start supplements. Step 2- you have to go out in sunlight and socialise no matter what. Break that comfort zone.
