What is Anxiety Disorder?
Non-genetic forms of GAD may be caused by highly stressful events like a childhood psychological trauma, the death of a loved one, a particularly difficult divorce, losing your job or other emotionally traumatic events. Although the causes of GAD in a person are not always known, the symptoms are recognizable. Anxiety symptoms often present themselves during childhood or adolescence, but they can also begin in adulthood. People of all ages are affected by GAD, and the disorder is twice as likely to appear in women as in men. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about 19 million Americans suffer from depression and 4 million from GAD each year.
