Generalised anxiety disorder is a type of anxiety disorder that’s characterised by excessive worry. Now, all of us might worry from time to time about specific things that are coming up or things that have happened, but with generalised anxiety disorder, you tend to worry about anything and everything, and it takes up most of your day and most of your time, and it can really kind of impact on your sleep and your ability to concentrate and just to get on with day-to-day activity.
