A mental illness that involves excessive, exaggerated anxiety and worry about everyday life events. It differs from regular anxiety in the way that little worries are over analyzed to the point of a possible anxiety attack which is very similar to a panic attack.

Some symptoms are:
fatigue
ongoing worry
unrealistic view of problems
headaches
sweating
trembling
difficultly concentrating
being easily startled
insomnia

AKA: GAD
