I was diagnosed as have GAD or Generalized Anxiety Disorder, when I was fairly young. I was diagnosed that when I was also Diagnosed as having ADD(inattentive type-No hyperactivity) and some others LD's(back then known as learning Disorders, Now seen and and talked about as Learning Differences) The other 2 LD's that I have is a Grapho-motor disorder-basically I hand write slowly and it is difficult for me to get my thoughts down on paper..., and I have and Auditory Processing Deficit-this means that I can hear you just fine but if there is back round noise(any noise), that makes is very difficult for me and makes it very difficult for me to concentrate--also when I was younger, although I could hear just fine, I could easily confuse words that sounded similar or--/ such as words that rhymed!!! The Back round Noise thing still bothers me to some degree, but I have learned to cope wit the other parts of this Disorder.
BTW, this in no way inhibits my intelligence, In fact, I have a very high I.Q.
I know what it is and I am told it is in the top 1 percentile, however..., I personally think that most of that becomes irrelevant, because I believe that it is NOT how smart one is, but rather how is one smart, as in we all have our talents and I could give virtually give endless examples of this, but that is getting further sidetracked to you original question.
After being Diagnosed with Panic disorder, I have no doubt in my mind that now looking back on it, it was directly related to the Abused That I faced and suffered from!!!
As for the symptoms of both The GAD: One can simply look that up and as for the Panic disorder, I think that is somewhat self explanatory, however, feel free to look that one up as well.
Also fell free to PM me should you have further questions on the subject as I would be happy to give out as much info as I am able to you.
hope this helps.
