Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) involves persistent anxiety and worry about a broad range of situations, from everyday issues to global disasters. These worries can take up a lot of time and can be very difficult to control or disconnect from.
Though the subject of worry is often related to “everyday” concerns (e.g., finances, performance, interactions, safety) that we all worry about at times, anxiety worries are often excessive, and can make it difficult to get work done or be at your job or at home. Further, those struggling with GAD often experience persistent physical symptoms of anxiety, including: muscle tension, restlessness, fatigue, concentration difficulties, irritability, and sleep disturbance.
Too many people suffer in silence with anxiety.
