GAD: Another name for Generalized anxiety disorder.
GAD (condition): Excessive anxiety and worrying.

GAD: Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is much more than the normal anxiety people experience day to day. Itís chronic and exaggerated worry and tension, even though nothing seems to provoke it. Having this disorder means always anticipating disaster, often worrying excessively about health, money, family, or work. Sometimes, though, the source of the worry is hard to pinpoint. Simply the thought of getting through the day provokes anxiety. 1
