It is natural and normal to worry some of the time. Life stresses and sudden changes can produce fear and anxiety in the most well-adjusted individuals. However, in Generalized Anxiety Disorder this is taken to an extreme degree. GAD is diagnosed where levels of anxiety are both excessive (i.e. out of proportion) and hard to control. As opposed to specific phobias and anxiety about specific situations, in GAD worry tends to be about a range of everyday matters rather than an individual issue. GAD can have a big impact on your ability to cope with the stresses of life, and it is rare for the symptoms of Generalized Anxiety to remit without therapeutic intervention
People suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder often form a worry chain. That is, each worrying thought cascades into a new one punctuated by “what if?” questions. These thoughts then escalate until even everyday problems lead to catastrophic thoughts about the future. For example:
Associated with such worries are often ongoing physical feelings of tension, irritability, sleep problems, concentration problems, and agitation.
One challenge with people suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder is that they often have opposing beliefs about worry. One the one hand they may think:
Many people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder state that they have “always been a worrier” as long as they remember. However, Generalized Anxiety Disorder can be successfully treated with evidence based anxiety treatment.
Our expert team of psychologists can assist you in identifying and breaking your chains of escalating worry through evidence-based cognitive techniques. We can help you with recognising the effect worry is having on you and resolve your conflicting feelings about its value.
