Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is one of the most common
reasons people seek psychiatric help. People suffering from
GAD are typically lifelong “professional” worriers. They often
worry about worst-case scenarios when such things are highly
unlikely. They often feel tense and on edge, can have
difficulty sleeping, suffer from muscle tightness and get
easily fatigued and are easily irritated.
adversely effects memory and concentration. The frequent
worrying occupies the brain to the point that it can be
difficult for the person to focus on other things. When left
untreated, GAD waxes and wanes throughout a person’s life but
usually doesn’t stay dormant for too long.
Untreated GAD is associated with a higher risk of developing
major depression later in like. GAD also negatively affects
job and school performance as well as relationships.
Luckily, there is effective treatment available for GAD.
