I was diagnosed with this about 10 years ago but am not sure I am this right now.

GAD can look like...
Uncontrollable worries about a lot of different things rather than fixating on one or two.
Intrusive, unwanted thoughts about bad things we fear will occur in the future.
Hypervigilence, hyper awareness, sensitivity to sound or other stimuli.
Irritability.
Symptoms of the body, such as restlessness, insomnia, shortness of breath.

GAD can wax and wane over years. It often hangs out with it's good pal, depression.
