Each year over 4 million adult Americans suffer Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). GAD is a condition characterized by exaggerated and excessive anxiety over day-to-day events, which can begin in childhood, adolescence, or even adulthood.
Statistics show women being more vulnerable to GAD than men.
A majority of patients with generalized anxiety disorder symptoms have an inward tendency to anticipate disaster and constantly worry over finances, health, school, work, family, and much more.
As time goes by and the condition worsens, the unrealistic thoughts and baseless worries experienced by these patients dominate their thoughts and literally hijack their lives. This interferes with their normal functioning including school, work, and relationships.
