Generalised Anxiety Disorder – do you worry about almost everything? Do you have difficulty switching off the anxiety thoughts and feelings? You may be suffering from generalised anxiety disorder. I recently heard GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder) described as ‘worry on steroids” by another therapist and I thought it described it pretty well.

  • Being late for appointments or even just to meet a friend
