How do I know if I have Generalised Anxiety in particular?

There are different types of anxiety, including phobia’s, social anxiety, OCD and PTSD. Generalised anxiety is one of the more common reasons people seek help for their anxiety. Generalised anxiety can affect anyone, at any stage in their life. The key component of generalised anxiety is uncontrollable feelings of worry; and such worry is disproportionate or irrational to reality. You may feel overcome by your feelings of worry, and unable to find a distraction.

These feelings can affect your sleep and mood. You may feel tired or have low energy throughout the day or find yourself feeling irritable or easily annoyed. Your feelings of anxiety may cause you to seek reassurance from friends, family members or colleagues, and cause you to doubt decisions.

This may lead to avoidance of situations perceived to be anxiety-provoking, for example, you may take the day off work to avoid a business meeting.

Generalised anxiety can also affect your concentration: You spend more time worrying than focusing on work, study or your relationships. You may also experience depression, as it is difficult to enjoy yourself if you often feel worried. Read More
