Will I have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) for the rest of my life?

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a chronic, recurrent condition that often worsens during stressful life periods. However, those who complete treatment can substantially decrease their levels of anxiety and even return to their normal daily routines and relationships. The goal of treatment is to make your anxiety a manageable part of your day instead of your entire day. Although many people cannot be “cured,” medication, therapy, traditional healing methods, and self-care can help to substantially alleviate the symptoms of GAD. See your healthcare professional to set up a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
