A client that I currently work with has ASD, but also suffers from an anxiety disorder. The symptoms he experiences are most consistent with a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder. At any given time there repeated worries and concerns about a particular aspect of his life.

Since the onset of the pandemic his worries revolve around life never being the same again, and that things will never return to the normal he once knew. These worries consume a lot of his day and at times prevent him from enjoying things he would normally engage in doing.
