Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)/Worry

Generalised Anxiety Disorder is a general, long-lasting worry and anxiety about everyday life, about anything and everything. People with GAD imagine the worst happening (and worry about all the possible worst case scenarios). They believe future events are almost always negative, and they won’t be able to cope ‘when’ these things ‘do’ happen.¬†However, as in all anxiety, there is a tendency to over-estimate the danger, and under-estimate ability to cope.
