GAD is usually an over exaggeration of normal worries I ALWAYS opt for the worse case scenario no matter how impossible it would be.The constant worry caused all sorts of physical symptoms and eventually started causing depression and social phobia" not wanting to see people and go to social events" I was so worried about having an attack in public or while driving it seriously effected my life.I am by no way out of the woods but have had some relief in the past few weeks, my good days where i can function out number my bad days and for that i am grateful because when you start waking up later in the morning just to shorten the day because you don't know how to get through it is just a horrible lonely scary feeling.
Talk therapy and exposure therapy could help you but you need to talk to a doc about it, the earlier you catch it the better.
