Worrying about things is a major part of the human condition. It’s certainly normal to worry about money, finances, health, relationships and more. However, when worry disrupts how well you can live your life or seems to be about practically everything, your worry might be a condition called generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

If you have something coming up in your life such as a major exam, a medical diagnosis or family event, it is normal to spend time worrying about it. If, however, your worry seems to be general (a feeling of overall dread or about everything) you may have GAD. People with GAD often have trouble sleeping or concentrating and feel that their worrying is out of control.
