Hagridden is an adjective that means tormented by anxiety or stress.
From Old Norse, the word hexe (HECKS uh) means witch. It’s also a distant cousin of the word ‘hag.’ Combine this with ridden and you get an adjective — hagridden — that means tormented by stress or anxiety, as if haunted by a witch.
Doris was hagridden by all the paperwork needed to make the new sale. She felt like a trail of paper was haunting her every step.
