Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a real illness. Though GAD is a real illness, GAD can be treated with medicine and therapy.
If you have GAD, you worry all the time about your family,health, or work, and even when there are no signs of trouble.
Sometimes you aren't worried about anything special, butmay feel tense and worried all day long about nothing. You may also have aches and pains for no reason and may feel tired a lot.
Everyone gets worried at times, but if you have GAD,you stay worried most of the time, fear the worst will happen, and can't relax.
When does it start and how long does it last?
Most often GAD starts when a person is still a child or when they become a teenager. It can start as an adult, too. More women seem to have GAD than men.
People with GAD may visit their doctor many times before they find out what their real illness is. They may ask their doctor to help them with the signs of GAD like headaches or trouble falling asleep, but don't seem to get help for the illness itself.
Am I the only one with this illness?
No. You are not alone. In any year, 4 million Americans have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

The lack of dialogue in the media about these things is very troubling to me as people continue to accept our leaders know what they are doing.
