PatientScenario:S.F, 30-year-old male. S.F is a healthy 30-year-old male, with no prior medical history. He recently moved to a new city to start a new job. He is hoping this new job will help advance his career. His new job is in a fast-paced environment at a large well-known company. S.F has never left his hometown before. He now lives in a city where he does not know anyone and is far from his family and friends. His friends and family make up a great support system back in his hometown. Since moving and starting his new job, S.F has recently started experiencing these symptoms: insomnia, upset or “nervous” stomach, mild chest pain with palpitations, feeling easily overwhelmed, constant worrying, and feeling disorganized in his new role at work. When experiencing these symptoms, S.F has an elevated HR and BP. S.F states that he is feeling overwhelmed dealing with so many new transitions at once. He wants to excel in his new job and feels he needs to prove himself to his co-workers and bosses. S.F states he feels that these new situations are creating an immense amount of stress in his life. S.F also states it is difficult for him to deal with all this change without his family and friends close by.

He is starting to see how these symptoms are affecting him at work. He is more forgetful, disorganized, and having trouble focusing. S.F states he is aware that many of these symptoms and feelings he is experiencing are common signs of stress.
