What is Generalized Anxiety Disorder?
Some people have a severe fear of spiders. Some people have recurring thoughts that cause them distress. Some people struggle with intense anxiety attacks that are so severe and so physical, that they may end up hospitalized for a heart attack not knowing that what they struggled with was anxiety.
But others have more of a general anxiety. It is an anxiety that feels always present and always persistent. It may come with a lot of worries, or it may come with a lot of tension, or it may come in waves. It may manifest in different ways, but it’s always there, always causing you more stress and more worries.
That is generalized anxiety disorder – a constant, ongoing anxiety that interferes with life’s activities and doesn’t seem to go away. But as constant and normal that generalized anxiety disorder may seem over time, it is treatable, especially with therapy from a personal and experienced therapist that can work directly with you to help you control the symptoms.
