Generalized Anxiety Disorder, (GAD) is a catch-all category for anything the DSM-IV doesn't specify as an anxiety disorder. To keep the cash flowing, when they can't find some thing specific, you get labeled a "GAD" patient. They must label you with something to make it appear legitimate.

A. Snapshot summary:

  1. GAD is a general "catch-all" category of anxiety disorder. After naming every specific type of anxiety they wanted to have one that could be labeled on a person that they missed. Of course the next version of the DSM-5, etc will include the one they missed.
  2. What is anxiety? An uneasy feeling. A feeling of stress.
  3. What causes anxiety? To the Psychology industry you have a broken brain, genetic disorder or a chemical imbalance. You need them to fix you and patch you up so you can function. In fact, anxiety can be caused by lots of reasons you have direct control over: An upcoming exam you have not studied for. Worry your wife will catch you sleeping with another woman. You feel you are a personal failure because you dropped out of school and now live in a basement suite because that's all minimum wage gets you. You started a business idea that is not working. Sometimes there are things that cause you anxiety that you have no control over: The stock market crashed and you have lost your life savings. Your children make choices that you know are wrong and will hurt them, but they won't listen to you. You get disabled from a car accident that was not your fault and you have no way of continuing the same standard of living you had when you could work.
  4. What is the cure for anxiety? The Psychology industry wants you to spend lots of money on their drugs, $50 per hour to have them listen to you talk in therapy etc. In fact, drugs will only sedate and dull your feelings, not remove the cause. Why do you need to waste hundreds of dollars telling a shrink why you are anxious, you already know why you are stressed. He won't offer any solutions but just keep you coming back till you get over it yourself.
  5. The real solution is to do what Jesus said:
    "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6
    "For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? "Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? "And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? "And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. "But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! "Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' "For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. "So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:25-34

B. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, GAD as defined by the DSM-IV:

  1. "What Causes Generalized Anxiety Disorder? Some research suggests that GAD may run in families, and it may also grow worse during stress. GAD usually begins at an earlier age and symptoms may manifest themselves more slowly than in most other anxiety disorders. What Treatments Are Available for Generalized Anxiety Disorder? Treatments for GAD include medications and cognitive-behavioral therapy." (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Freedom From Fear, Staten Island, NY, National non-profit Mental Illness Advocacy Organization)
  2. "By learning more about how the brain creates fear and anxiety, scientists may be able to devise better treatments for anxiety disorders. For example, if specific neurotransmitters are found to play an important role in fear, drugs may be developed that will block them and decrease fear responses; if enough is learned about how the brain generates new cells throughout the lifecycle, it may be possible to stimulate the growth of new neurons in the hippocampus in people with PTSD." (Anxiety Disorders, National Institute of Mental Health, NIMH, 2006)
  3. "Treatment of Anxiety Disorders: In general, anxiety disorders are treated with medication, specific types of psychotherapy, or both." (Anxiety Disorders, National Institute of Mental Health, NIMH, 2006)
  4. "Scientists currently think that, like heart disease and type 1 diabetes, mental illnesses are complex and probably result from a combination of genetic, environmental, psychological, and developmental factors. ... Several parts of the brain are key actors in the production of fear and anxiety." (Anxiety Disorders, National Institute of Mental Health, NIMH, 2006)

C. Conclusion:

  1. Anxiety is common to human life and does not mean you need to see a psychiatrist.
  2. The drugs a doctor gives you for anxiety are designed to deaden your feelings. These drugs remove the symptoms, but do not address the cause.
  3. Identify why you are anxious. If it is because of some sin you are committing, stop sinning. If it is something that is a result of choices you have made then just accept where life has placed you and be content. If you want to better yourself, then go back and finish high school or enter university to get the training you need. Apply for a better job. Make sure you show up for work on time so you don't get fired! For those reasons outside of your control, Jesus commands you to just accept your lot in life. Worrying and anxiety are sin. Stop sinning... stop being anxious.
