People who grow up under difficult / impossible circumstances are often poorly prepared to cope with the normal stresses and demands of adult life, which are hard enough on anyone. Today's cognitive therapy focuses on learning new skills rather than talking about feelings or "working through." Be brave -- people are ready to help.

Generalized Anxiety includes excessive worry and apprehensive expectation which is often for more than 6 months. This can be due to relationships, work or finances
