Does anyone know anything about GAD?

Does anyone know anything about GAD?

So it's General Anxiety Disorder and I am starting to think I have it... It all started about 2 years ago when I got REALLY bad anxiety attacks like no sleep for a couple months, horrible grades, everything was stressful, and I would sob randomly. It got bad... I had to take sleeping meds and do daily things to fix it... I got over it for a while and last year was fine but now with high school starting and all the added stress, I thought I was going to have a break down today... I got all panicky and felt like I was going to cry. I've always had issues with worrying for no reason but I didn't think anything of it until I decided to look into this and now I seriously think I have it. My question: Does anyone know anything about it and/ or have solutions to fix it?

I usually get it at NIGHT. It's awful. I have to run and tell my parents and they spend like half an hour calming me down :/

Hmm, idk. Maybe look into stress solutions, things like stress balls (that squishy plastic thing to squeeze when you get stressed) or counting the bones in your hand or something. I get stressed out sometimes, like I will literally just have a sob session. Once was when I had assignments due for this essay online zoology thing, (out of school) and sometimes I'll cry for a while if I'm ill. I don't have a disorder, it's not that serious.

I might have that! Recently I've been panicking over tiny things, losing a pencil to do my homework with, the journey to school. Here are a few links that may help you:

Antidepresant pills should help a lot. But of course, you have to see a doctor about it first
Elleyd
Yea, that's what I;m worried about. I don't want my parents flipping and all that money spent if I don;t actually have it...

I used to have bad anxiety i would worry about everything maybe your worrying about something but its up to u to find out what that something your worrying about is.
Elleyd
That's my point. There isn't just one thing: it's everything. Everything gets me up in arms and I'm all nutso for no reason and this is y I think it's a disorder and not just stress.
