Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. 

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is characterised by persistent and excessive worry about different things. 

GAD is a long-term condition that causes you to feel anxious about a wide range of situations and issues rather than one specific event.

Individuals with GAD don’t know how to stop their worry cycle and feel it is beyond their control.
