Carolynn Clement's insight:

Another personal experience from a college student at BYU-Idaho.  I find it fascinating to read the individual experiences people have with GAD.  They are all so personal and different.  It is a reminder to me that GAD is different for every person.  Although symptoms might be similar between accounts there are still very personal and individual and need to be addressed specifically for each individual.  I also liked where the article talked about treatment and addressed the stigma with getting help with GAD.

This is fascinating.
Carolynn Clement's insight:

This links to an article that did research on using Lavender Oil in place of Lorazepam in treating GAD.  The effects of the Lavender oil seems to be just as effective as Lorazepam but it doesn't come with all the side effects.  It would be interesting to see more studies done on the use of Lavender over a longer period of time to see if it could sustain its effectiveness.
