This sounds like GAD worries to me. Yes, everyone worries about these things, but when you have GAD, the worries take over your mind because you can't shut them off. At least that is what is has been like for me. I worried about stuff far out of proportion to the size of the problem and I couldn't stop the worry. I have made some progress in the last year. One thing I have learned is if I have a worry, then I try to decide is there something I can do. For instance, if I am worried about getting the flu, I could get a flu shot. If there is nothing I can do about the worry (for instance if I was worried about an asteroid hitting the earth, there is not much I can do about that) then I need to try to let the worry go. I have learned that it does no good to try to talk myself out of the worry. Back to the asteroid example, if I tried to convince myself that an asteroid would not hit the earth, I would not be very successful in abolishing the worry. I would just be focusing on it more. Now I try to just tell myself that it is my GAD talking-that my brain is telling me that this asteroid thought is important and I need to focus on it when really it is not important, just a miscommunication in my brain and I try to distract myself. It doesn't always work, but it helps a lot of the time. I hope you can find some relief.
