Anxiety Disorder Counselling West Sussex
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a mood disorder that is characterised by multiple and/or non-specific worries. The fear associated with GAD interferes with the person’s ability to sleep, think, or function in some other way. Symptoms of anxiety are even described in the word itself. Specifically, the word anxiety comes from the Latin word anxiety, which means to choke or upset. The symptoms, therefore, include emotional or behavioural symptoms as well as ways of thinking that are responses to feeling as if one is in danger. Unlike a phobia, where your fear is connected to a specific thing or situation, the anxiety of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is diffuse – a general feeling of dread or unease that colours your whole life. This anxiety is less intense than a panic attack, but much longer lasting, making normal life difficult and relaxation impossible.
If you have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) you may worry about the same things that other people do: health issues, money, family problems, or difficulties at work. But you take these worries to a new level.
