Many people, especially women, nowadays suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, commonly addressed to as GAD, without even knowing it. This anxiety disorder usually manifests itself in women rather than men and the main thought that goes through a person’s mind if she suffers from it is that she has been anxious about everything and anything ever since she can remember. People who suffer from GAD perceive the world as a dangerous place, where everybody and everything is out to get them. If you have been diagnosed with GAD or if you feel like you could be a possible candidate for this anxiety disorder, rest assure that you are not the only one who is suffering from it. In fact, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, 6.8 million Americans, mostly women, have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.
