Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
We all worry from time to time. It is a normal and natural response to stressful situations in life.

Separation anxiety disorder occurs when an individual experiences excessive fear or anxiety when separated from a particular attachment (ie. parent, boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse, sibling, or sometimes even a pet)
