It isn’t unusual for someone’s emotional distress to become quite severe. The Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a chronic, debilitating condition that may involve excessive–sometimes 40 hours a week–and unrealistic worry and tension for at least 6 months, serious aches and pains, stomach trouble, insomnia, dizziness, irritability, unhappiness, poor concentration or other symptoms. The “worry” of people with GAD is more extensive and devastating than ordinary worries, e.g. 50% have trouble sleeping, 90% say it interferes with daily life and 60% with relationships, and 70% have always been an out-of-control worrier.
