Dr. Eric Anderson
Psychiatry 21 years experience
GAD: Gad is the presence of anxiety that is impairing, problematic, and/or extreme. The anxiety is present most days, throughout the day, and does not have to have a trigger. The anxiety tends to be about anything & everything (hence the generalized part) and out-of-proportion to the reality of one's situation. It's rooted in biological, life story, dimensional, spiritual and/or behavioral perspectives.
