Worry: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Most people will answer “yes” to the question whether they worry at some point in their day.  So, the experience of worrying is common.  However, when worry becomes uncontrollable or excessive it can interfere with your life and cause distress both psychologically and physically.

When you experience generalized worry (anxiety) about a variety of everyday problems for an extended period of time, you may be suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
