GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER Generalized Anxiety DisorderDisorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is much more intense than the normal anxiety people experience on a day to day basis. This anxiety is chronic and fills one's everyday life with worry and tension, even when there wasn't anything really to provoke it. An individual with this disorder constantly worries excessively about everything from income, to friends and family, or employment. GAD is perhaps better characterized by the anticipation of disaster that usually is present in every moment of the afflicted individual's day. A rudimentary event like getting through the day is enough to provoke anxiety. People experiencing this anxiety, though they know it is irrational, cannot usually shake their fears.
