Do YOU have GENERALIZED ANXIETY?? | Kati Morton


Hey everybody, today we’re going to talk about Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). How do we diagnose it? And how do we treat it?musicNow, as always whenever I do a diagnosis video, ya know, I have my handy dandy DSM. So I’m gonna read from this and I know that a lot of you are like “Why do you always read from it?” but this is the criteria, this is how we diagnose, and I know that it’s not the end all, be all and I know different countries have different, you know, types of DSMs and call them different things, but this just gives you an idea, as a clinician, what I’m looking for when someone is struggling with anxiety and I think it might be GAD, or Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Now, the first portion of the criteria, I think, is the most important. And that is, that someone who has GAD struggles with excessive anxiety and worry, apprehensive expectation, occuring more days than not, for at least six months. And that’s always important. How long has it been going on? For at least six months. About a number of events or activities such as work or school performance, and (we’re moving onto the next portion) it says the individual finds it difficult to control the worry, and this is what I’ll hear in my office a lot. Is that “I just, I worry about this and I wake up in a panic and I’m thinking about this other thing” and it’ll be a bunch of different types of things, and I’ll say, “What have you tried to help? Have you done anything to try to help yourself?” “It just comes out of nowhere, I can’t even control it. I try to do breathing and that’s just bullshit.” And so I hear a lot of complaints about this because we’re unable to control it. It can feel like it controls us. It comes out of nowhere. The next criteria is, that the anxiety and worry are associated with three or more of the following six symptoms, with at least some symptoms having been present for at least more days than not in the past six months. Now, there are six of these and they’re gonna have to have three or more. An important note is that while we need three or more of the following six symptoms as adults, children only need one. Okay, the first is restlessness or feeling keyed up or on edge, next is being easily fatigued, third is difficulty concentrating or mind going blank. Remember, I’ve talked about that with a lot of things, like with depression, and with anxiety we can struggle to concentrate. The fourth is irritability, five is muscle tension, which can look like trembling, twitching, having the shakes, feeling achey or sore. And the last, number six, is sleep disturbance. This can be difficulty falling or staying asleep, restless or unsatisfied sleep. Like I’ve said, I’ve had clients whogaspwake up in a panic and then they look around and everything is fine. Now, there are three more components to this diagnosis. And the next is that the anxiety, worry, or physical symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment. This is what makes anything a diagnosis. It has to impair our level of functioning, it has to stop us from doing the things that we normally would want to do. And the next is, that the disturbance is not attributable to the psychological effects of substance. So it’s like, we can’t be high, or drunk, or anything like that. This can’t be coming from anything like that, it has to be coming from a natural origin, like our body just creating this worry and we don’t know why. And the final is that the disturbance is not better explained by another mental disorder. And so there’s a lot of different, we call is differential diagnosis, when we have to make sure that this is the proper diagnosis. And it says that we have to rule out social anxiety, social phobia, panic disorder, anxiety or worry, PTSD, gaining weight and anorexia and nervosa. There can be a lot of different things, the list goes on and on and on. So before we diagnose GAD, we need to make sure it’s not coming from some place else, that it’s not part of another diagnosis. I like that the DSM also mentions the way that GAD can look in adults versus children, because I’ve heard from many of you that when it comes to diagnoses, since you’re an adult or a child of that disorder, you feel like the symptoms that they talk about don’t quite fit you. And so I want to read what they talk about the difference being when it comes to GAD. They talk about adults who have GAD often worry about every day, routine life circumstances, such as possible job responsibilities, health and finances, health of family members, misfortune of their children, or minor matters like doing household chores, being late for appointments, etc. In children, they tend to worry about their competence or the quality of their performance. So it tends to be more focused around how they’re performing in sports or in other art activities, how they’re performing in school, or their competence overall in school, like “I don’t want to look stupid” or “I’m doing my best and I’m worrying about how I’m going to perform on that test”. Now, the median age of onset for GAD is the age of thirty, which was really surprising to me, but those that they talked to and interviewed for that information, stated that they had felt nervous their entire life. The DSM also talks about how GAD in children is often over-diagnosed and it needs to be diagnosed with extreme caution because there are a lot of other disorders that could better explain the symptoms, and they talk about Separation Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder (social phobia), or OCD are often accompanied by worries that can mimic the feelings in the diagnostic criteria of GAD. Okay, so what if we’ve been diagnosed with GAD, then what? Let’s get into the treatment options, and the first is talk therapy, hooray! But more specifically, CBT. And I’m looking at my notes here because they say that CBT is the best because it focuses on teaching us specific skills to get back to doing the things that we love. And often, when we struggle with GAD, we avoid situations due to our anxiety, and CBT can help us better slowly get back into doing those things so that our whole life isn’t spent trying to avoid anything that can give us anxiety. CBT is also the best because it helps us challenge those excessive worries, and then we can actually realize that they’re not based in fact at all that maybe we got really anxious that one time and we had no control, it came out of nowhere, it helps us challenge it so we can realize that that actually isn’t something we need to be afraid of. The second treatment option is medication, and I know not all of you want to be on medication, but I like to give you all the information so you can make the most educated decision for you, for the treatment that’s best for you. And SSRIs and NSRIs are the first line, and those are otherwise known as anti-depressants, and I talked also how benzodiazepines are used as well, but it’s more and more on a limited basis because they should only be used for acute stress/anxiety situations. These aren’t, benzodiazepines aren’t something that we should be using ever day, all day, because they are habit forming, it could be very dangerous. Benzodiazepines also aren’t a good idea if you have a history of any kind of substance abuse, just because they are so habit forming. But don’t worry, there are other things we can do to help ourselves. I wrote down some other relaxations techniques like progressive relaxation, breathing techniques, listening to relaxing music, you can also go for a walk, eat healthfully and regularly can help a lot, getting enough sleep and making sure that it’s actual restful sleep, remember back when I was reading the diagnostic criteria? Sleep disturbance is one of those, and so if we’re not getting proper sleep that can make everything else feel a lot worse, so working with your doctor or therapist on that could help also. Also avoiding coffee, obviously it’s an upper, it’s gonna maybe make us feel more anxious and it could even stimulate some of the physical feelings we have when we feel anxiety as a whole. And lastly, they say avoid alcohol because it can lead to racing heart, when we wake up in the middle of the night when our body’s processing the alcohol, it feels to some people like a panic attack. So just being aware of the things you can maybe change, lifestyle choices that you can change, to better help you with your GAD. I hope you found this helpful. I think it’s important to note, that if you struggle with this, there are treatment options available, like I said, there are things we can do on our own, there are medications that help, we can talk to a therapist, seeing someone who specializes in CBT can be so beneficial. So know that if you are struggling, help is out there and it can and will get better. If you’re new to my channel, and you like videos like this, give it a thumbs up and don’t forget to subscribe.

  2. Can childhood bullying cause an anxiety disorder? What about bullying plus domestic violence in the home as a child, and substance abuse?

  3. my mind races to the point where I begin to believe that ppl can read my thoughts because I have become so self conscious about it and I struggle to understand others and myself. At that point Ive lost my mind. I have other more common symptoms of G.A.D. and severe depression after Ive reached the point of near insanity

  4. SYMPTOM…….of the real issue/problem/reason.

  5. I was diagnosed with GAD 3 months ago. I feel my anxiety fading away but I still find difficult to do things I used to like. Lets hope by the end of August I'll be back to normal 🙂

  6. just feel like the only thing that truly helps are benzodiazepines and that sucks bc that means never feeling ok unless I'm on a drug. Not to mention they're hard to even get prescribed to and they're not an actual solution but damn, they provide so much relief and I wish I could just take them every day until I work through this bullshit and get to the root of it bc I can't function properly and it's driving me insane.

  7. I have a question about bruxism. I was told that I often grind my teeth in my sleep and a lot of the time I find that during the day, I tend to clench my jaw. I know it can be caused by a lot of different factors, one of them being anxiety and stress. I see a psychologist regularly for CBT and take an antidepressant. I was wondering why I still face these issues if I'm getting the help I need? Could something else be causing it?

  8. Ive been diagnosed with GAD MDD and PTSD since i was 17, im 30 now I WISH THEY WOULD GIVE ME BETTER DRUGS INSTEAD OF SSRIS, ITS NOT WORKING U FUCKING ASSHOLES, and now i have tonic clonic and focal seizures im not epileptic they found nothing. 🙁

    And your advice on medications and dealing with it.. Is wrong its a disorder for a reason.. Anti pyscotics work best!! Seraqul

  9. i don’t worry about things right away i tend to not care and then let the stress build and then i just breakdown i really need to go to a psychiatrist but there isn’t one in my area that takes my insurance and i need medication to help since i’m already on it from my primary

  10. Had anxiety since a kid smoking weed made me derealized and boosted my anxiety by 10 times, anyone else feel like this?

  11. I just got diagnosed with anxiety I went to the doctors for a completely different reason (sore stomachs) And the doctor basically said it stems from having anxiety. My parents don’t believe in mental heath and think it’s just for attention/a fashion trend 🙄 so I have no one to talk to about it (my mum told me to not go to the therapy group I was recommended by the doctor) and I have no clue how to get better or even cope better

  12. I don’t think I have GAD, but I have panic attacks or anxiety attacks a lot, 50% of time it’s because I’m around bugs (I have entomophobia), is it possible I have another form of anxiety?

  13. I have ptsd and gad and im only 13 and i have problems with school and i worry if someone doesn’t call or text me back right away or if someone is late or if im late for school or if i dont pass a test with a really good grade. I also wake up in the middle of the night in a panic attack and i cant breath and my chest is tight and after that i can go back to sleep and i have at least 1 panic attack in 2 days at school. I do have a service dog to help me through a lot of it but in reality it still happens. Im glad that on youtube there are ppl i can relate too and not feel alone in life

  17. I want a therapist but in order to do that I'd need to ask my parents which I tried but didn't end well 😖😭

  18. my life is living hell. I suffered a lot with ADHD in my entire childhood from age 2-3 to 17-18 then i was all ok for a year or two,but then GAD and I m 37 now 😔

  19. I just have this knee jerk reaction to wait another 6 months to see if something 'actually' wrong with me. I get weirdly comparative about it: I won't say anything unless I still feel this way in 3 months time- (3 months later) yeah well I've been okay for a couple of those days, i think; it's probably nothing.
    This past month I've been as tired as I can possibly be, and I don't have anything to stress about aside the fact I can't relax. I'm so stressed by this fact I would be laughing at the irony if it wasn't so fucking painful lol.

  20. My mind:
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF
    WHAT IF

  21. The DSM probably does not address the nature of disorders specific to early adverse experience / complex trauma.

    For example if you're fostered or adopted you are likely to suppress some outward symptoms of anxiety and depression. You try to fit in for your own survival and therefore you don't self- express. You're a people pleaser but it's making you nuts. It took me decades to sort out what was messed up deep in me and why all these puzzle pieces fit to explain it and see what is happening. This is very freeing if you are adopted, or were displaced once or a number of times or have similar complex trauma to sort out.

    Start by telling your honest story, and looking at it very truthfully. Not for others, but for you. Many of us did not, we coped but we never told our story. We never said what we need. We neglect ourselves till we hit a wall at some point in life. Your wellbeing is the most essential part of your life, so take care of you.

  22. Living in this world , in this time , with humans running this comedy is enough reason to excuse any level of anxiety in anyone at anytime !! Life = anxiety , period ! If your not anxious , somethings wrong with YOU ! That condition is called IGNORANCE and it will most definitely lead to the complete and utter destruction of this planet and every poor life form on it . The only life form I have ZERO sympathy for is of the human variety as it is US who is guilty of the gross mismanagement of our pathetic species and our own environs ! The term "shitting in ones nest " springs to mind ! lol . Don't worry my pretties , It'll all be over soon we'll make damn sure of that .

  23. Natural Nasal Breathing Pushes the Body System towards a ( Calm Parasympathetic Response ), and away from Fight , Freeze or Anxious Tendencies. peace 🎼🎧🎼👌

  24. I suggest Fasting. I had lived with my GAD (diagnosed) for 5 years, including sever psychosomatic symptoms, like lump in the throat, neck stiffness, breathing problems, heart palpitations, cold and hot flushes, tinnitus, nightmares, etc. So after I read and did a lot of things like, CBT, Lyrica (against the symptoms 600mg) and Xanax against panic attacks. I found following what helped me to heal completely. First you get used to Lyrica (some side-effects but that subsides after 4 weeks), so it will not help when you are at 600mg anymore (saturation effect). You have to cycle it, get down with the dosage to zero for two month and start again with Lyrica, you will not have side-effects again, but then Lyrica works again. I tried that with my doctor (he was against it) but it worked for me. But what really worked was Fasting I did then cycle three times 5 days fasting with a Keto diet in between (I did not take Lyrica at that time) within 2 month. That blew my disorder away, many studies confirmed, that when the brain is in deep ketosis (70%-80% of the energy comes from ketone bodies and not from glucose) that anxiety and depression is strongly reduced. That gave me the final kick to get rid of my last psychosomatic symptoms as the tinnitus. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6543248/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4790398/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4346441/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5742683/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5913738/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4228123/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6120115/

  25. I've been struggling with the most extreme tiredness + insomnia… The worst is when you're actually anxious about your sleep, and in turn have trouble sleeping!

  26. I tell my doctor,family, and phyciastrist all my symptoms for anxiety and depressed and they dont believe me? They think just because I'm pretty and have a nice body and dress nice that nothing must be wrong with me becaus eim so perfect. It leads me to be even worse

  27. My whole life especially childhood has been every single one of these symptoms but no one believes soemthing is wrong with me so I get ignored and forgotten I'm going 10 years at age 21 of untreated anxiety and depression and I really need HELP.

  28. I just took a test on google and this disorder came as my result, so I typed this in and I do kinda overthink to much about almost everything.
    I’m pretty much an worried person so this is kinda true.

  29. hi..i.am a 40 year old man who has gad. worse yet I have depression on top of this. meds don't work much. I heard electroshock therapy works good for this. any other recommendations?

  30. I'm pretty fatigued but I also work 44hrs a week in high fast paced areas,. Muscles tension, like actually so sore , focusing and concentration is bad though. I pretty bad sleep, like borderline insomnia,. Like enough at worse stopped my period and sleep deprived. Mildest I'm tired can't focus

  31. Just in case people don't know, CBT is where you tell the therapist what you're worried about, and the therapist says "There's no reason to worry about that", and you say "you're right!", and then you pay them and you're cured!

  32. Thank you so much! I was really doubting myself. Like "do i really have anxiety?" and etch.
    Cause i didn't quite feel like had GAD at all (cause of other videos or things i've read). But now i know that it's different from adult and childrens. So happy i found this and can relax for a bit. Thank you Kati

  33. I don't know why, but I don't seem to be able to "have a break" from not being anxious. Even when I'm sitting down not planning to do anything (waiting for a lecture), I can't just chill out (I test if I'm anxious by breathing in and out; and see if I have smooth breathing or "anxious" breathing).

    I seem to not ask for help, because I'm worried that I'll be making the professor or faculty member annoyed from me (and I feel anxious when going to seek help).

  34. What kind of anxiety is it when you have stomach pain, which makes someone obsess about the possibility of throwing up? By the way…medical causes have been ruled out by the pediatrician.

  35. Me: “I have a college degree and plenty of happy relationships so why is doing the laundry and dishes so hard and overwhelming.” Me after this video: “oh. Yeah.”

  36. I couldn't sleep the other night because I was so worried about where I put my Social Security card…..did I need my SS card? no…

  37. I was diagnosed with GAD and Adjustment Disorder with depressive mood this week. It was I needed to hear because I though there was something wrong with me including being jumpy and anxious. I realize that I’m not alone and getting help is the best thing. I’m starting therapy next week!

  38. Can someone have symptoms of anxiety or depression, but they don't show a lot of symptoms when they're in the clinic? (They seem "happy/good" & ok)

  39. Huh, so all of the symptoms of adults with GAD mentioned in 4:00 are actually abnormal things?!

    All of those things are like mostly everyday me…….

  40. I don’t know if I meet the more than half the time over 6 months criterion, because I wasn’t as anxious during summer break, but it’s hard to evaluate yourself like that. I realized recently that I get anxious about so many things every day. When I’m around other people, I worry that my hair looks bad, that my acne looks bad (even if I have 2 barely visible pimples), that I’m walking weirdly or slouching, that people notice my resting bitchface, etc. I worry about how I’m acting when I’m doing adult things like deciding when to change lanes or ESPECIALLY paying for things with credit cards and debit cards. At school, I worry about how my friends and my crush feel about me, and I used to worry about always having time for my ex and not making him mad by being too busy with school. I already have sensory processing disorder, which causes feelings of anxiety and which has caused me to become pretty skinny for my entire life, so when I feel anxious, I commonly lose my appetite or feel like my stomach won’t ever stop churning. I feel anxious about telling people about it, especially my parents, because they’re very supportive of me, but they worry so much when somethings wrong that it makes things worse for me. I recently called the health center at my university to start talking to their Psychiatry department about my anxiety after months of being too afraid to do it, and I’m so excited to see what my next step is and what they say.

  41. Yooooooo I’m not even into mental health and I just heard someone make a joke about the twitching from GAD and I was like “wait other people do that too” and turns out everything else in the video hits too close to home too… hek

  42. I can't believe it took me this long to realise I have this. Literally fit all of the criteria but got imposter syndrome over the severity of my symptoms not being "bad" enough for me to deserve to get help when I don't get panic attacks. Hoping CBT will help me finally get a hold of my anxious thoughts.

  43. I have like 99 percent of this and have my whole life. I’m 40 and the symptoms of the anxiety I think leads to my OCD as a coping mechanism.

    Thanks 🙏 for making these videos! Opening up and talking about it is great to hear that people understand. The panic attacks and worry of them is hard. You beat yourself up about it.

  44. I was diagnosed with GAD. Omg I have to avoid coffee too because that’s what keeps me up and I’ll literally worry about everything 😩

  45. Hello Kati,

    I have bipolar disorder, but many times in mania, hypomania, and/or depression I get an uncontrollable anger when my plans get deviated by other people. In your professional opinion at afar would you think the anger is linked to the bipolar disorder 1 or is it common to have bipolar linked with GAD. Thank you for all your efforts and time to help our community become healthy and more informed. Have a blessed day Katie.

  46. My anxiety has so many levels . To many thoughts and questions swirling around , and trying to answer them all. It's like your trying to run and somebody is holding onto your shirt. Then when you have clear moment , the what ifs start for everything going good at the time. The problem is when I try to be in control of everything in my life . That's when I lose control in my mind . Everybody tells me you cant control your destiny.

  47. I started getting anxious about things when I was about 11 or 12 (I'm 14 now) and for me it's like what happens around me, when people talk and say something weird (pretty common in high school) I constantly feel like I need to express that to somebody else. I can't keep my feelings in and I always feel like I need to tell my mum when something happens because I don't know how to get over it or know how to react to it myself and I hate secrets. I have literally never heard anything about this and I wish I knew why/how to fix this or if it's normal. My anxiety just builds up all the time and I grow more and more jealous of all the kids I know who can just let things go and not worry about things like I do.

  48. I have just recently found your videos and I find them very informative. You communicate very well!
    I wonder if you could ever do a video discussing CBT more in depth, and when it is helpful and talk surrounding people who struggle with CBT. I went to counselling for about a month (4 sessions) when I was 16 about depression, and it was very CBT focussed and had a focus on taking action, without looking into my actual circumstances or background as a child at all, and I found it to be quite traumatic to the point that I have too much struggle and anxiety to bring myself to see other counsellors in my adult life, I have been to one other for two sessions through my husband’s encouragement, and each time I had panic type feelings (not full on panic attacks, but sweating and shaking and feeling nervous and nauseated).
    I also have a very close friend who has her masters in counselling psychology, and she has been traumatized by CBT in the past as well, so has actually told me she doesn’t recommend therapists who are focused on CBT, unless they also do background work first. Could you make a video discussing this?

  49. I know that different countries have different

    DSM-5/10

    Haha values they're so quirky wtf lol

    ICD

    Ok so the "international" is just a euphemism

    Metric

    I know what I mean wtf you're actually marginalising me we're a liberal country

  50. I seem to get the 'Deer in headlights' feeling while out at a store. I might need to revisit a therapist again.

    I know I have PTSD from the recently ended caregiving for my Mom. I'm just afu right now.

  51. What sucks is knowing that whatever you’re anxious about isn’t a big deal but still being freaked out about it for way too long

  52. I used to not consider myself an anxious person because there are some people that are outwardly VERY anxious. For me it was something constant practically from birth and almost entirely internal–I was very late at learning to be open with concerns (mostly because I was always ashamed). So it was a background, internal, constant experience I didn't think counted because it wasn't externalized, and so I never distinguished it as anything but natural. It wasn't until I learned about the vague, emotional symptoms under the GAD umbrella that I really started to think about what normal for other people is and that my normal wasn't normal. It's weird to give myself permission to not care about things that don't need to be constantly in my thoughts or to let baseless apprehension go. Advice that really resonates with me came from my self-esteem research that applies well to general anxiety: You CAN handle situations as they come up. It's not the end of the world if you don't prepare for everything, that someone has a minor problem with you, most of the time there is no right or wrong but just different approaches that work–I give myself permission to invent my own approach instead of fearing I'm not doing it right by someone else's standards–my standards are as good as theirs. That kind of talk.

  53. I've been to ehe "no caffeine whatsoever" point. And i left it again in accordance with my therapist. The thing is, if you feel fatigued all the time and drin coffee to feel the least bit activated it sure can lead to agitation that brings you colser to the panic line. But cutting out all of beaverages you enjoy (for me it was mostly tea and high caffeine coke) it negatively affected my life quality. I had to cut something out because of my illness – and that fueled the depression and helplessness that come with not being able to partake in life normally. Also the more you don't do because of GAD the more anxious you eventually get!

  54. I'm too anxious to talk to my therapist about the possibility of havivng it because I'm so scraed that the answer will be no and I just embarrass myself and she starts hating me for pretending to have a menatl illness cuz due to people like me disorders tend to get stigmatized

  55. I love your videos. I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression since I was like 8 years old. I have general and social anxiety disorders…

  56. I got happy while watching this video tonight. A year ago, i was so anxious that i was having panic attacks every day at school. It got so bad that by January i couldn't go to school at all, and now, less than a year later, I'm at a new school where I'm a social butterfly and i have a ton of different friends and friend groups. I think it is so important to stand up in what you believe in, and this channel helped me to do that. A big thing i got to do this year was i got to talk about mental health and how it needs to be addressed in schools. After a suicide prevention thing we were all suppose to sign a paper saying we got the training, but the videos were outdated and it just talked about one type of depression when i know there are so many more. i got the whole class to join in. I ended up getting in a lot of trouble with the school board but almost every teacher and student agreed with me. maybe you could do a video on the importance of education on mental health in high schools, that would be very beneficial to me and to support what i'm trying to do at my school. Thanks!

  57. Hi!! I love your videos! Could you make a video about the full list of physical symptoms you can have from anxiety? Like depersonalization disorder and so on? Please please!! Thank you for doing this videos! I’ve seen most of them some of them over and over again 🤗🤗

  58. Is it normal to have a constant anxiety on dying and terrified of other people dying or getting hurt in some way? As soon as I open my eyes I just think "another day closer to dying" and I start panicking. I can't get out of this hole. My Dr is sending me to a pyhcologist and they have said I need a phyciatrist. I'm very worried about this. Does anybody else feel this fear? Asif you just want to get it over with cause you can't handle the buildup to it happening?…

  59. I have Panic Disorder. My life is run by constant fear. Meds help somewhat but their isnt a day that goes by that I dont think I'm dying of a horrible disease or death. Peace of mind is a dream.
