When Worry Overwhelms
Generalized anxiety disorder, usually referred to as GAD, is marked by persistent, excessive, and unrealistic worry about everyday things. If you experience exaggerated worry and tension, always expecting the worst, then you probably have GAD. People with GAD worry even when there is no apparent reason for concern, and often ruminate over issues such as money, health, family, work, or other issues.
Often the anxiety can manifest in physical symptoms, including:
- muscle tension
- difficulty sleeping
- stomach aches or diarrhea
If you have been experiencing these symptoms for at least 6 months, then it’s time to call The Ross Center.
