Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is the least recognized anxiety disorder, even by those who have it! In fact, most people with GAD don’t realize they have the disorder until after they’ve started treatment. GAD is characterized by uncontrollable worry about a wide range of real life concerns. People who suffer from GAD seem to always be anxious about something, and as soon as one concern is resolved another moves to take its place. This can result in a constant state of worry or anxiety, which can understandably be impairing and exhausting.
