GENERAL ANXIETY DISORDER is excessive, uncontrollable worry
and anxiety about events or activities.

Along with the worry comes a variety of physical symptoms,
such as restlessness, feeling on edge, being easily fatigued,
difficulty concentrating, mind going blank, irritability, muscle
tension, and sleep disturbance.

Sometimes a person tells a doctor or therapist all about the
physical symptoms, but doesn't mention worry.

It's important not to underestimate the debilitating power of
worry. People with
GENERAL ANXIETY DISORDER worry about
the same things as everybody else, but they worry excessively.
All this worry can cause a person to concentrate so much on
the future that they don't function well in the present.
