Everybody worries from time to time, but some people worry excessively and uncontrollably about daily life events and activities. Such severe worry can make you feel physically exhausted and leave you with other physical symptoms. When people experience worry (and other accompanying symptoms) to a clinically significant degree psychologists call it Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). It is thought that between 2 and 6 people out of every 100 will experience GAD every year. The good news is that psychologists’ understanding of what keeps GAD going is improving and several effective CBT treatments for GAD are widely available.
