“You’re such a worry wart…” “if there’s nothing to worry about, I’ll find something…” “I’m so worried about…” Are these phrases familiar? Is your default position to worry about the past, future, other people, the world?

In both cases worry is like a vicious cycle of over-thinking- usually the worst case in any real or imagined scenario. It is exhausting and uncontrollable, especially in the case of GAD.
