I've been thinking alot,mainly overthinking and I don't really like how it's called Generalized Anxiety Disorder bc it almost feels invalidating bc it's just "normal anxiety" but sometimes it's debilitating.Does anybody else get that?

      yeah i always thought it was called 'generalized' bc its not restricted to a specific thing like social anxiety, it follows us everywhere and affects our whole life.

    Is called generalized because it's anxiety in general as opposed to restricted to a specific topic like social anxiety, OCD, PTSD, etc. Not because it's stating a specific severity.
