“I’m really stressed and feel like I’m losing it. I’m so tense that I am having trouble sleeping and
fell like I’m a time bomb about to explode.”
JA is a 24-year-old female who presents to the primary clinic with complaints of nausea,
restlessness, fatigue, poor sleep, and headaches. She states that since starting her graduate
school program approximately 6 months ago, she has been on edge and worries about
everything. She worries about her school performance, paying for her tuition, her father’s
health, and even her younger brother, who is a freshman undergraduate at Colorado State
University. She states her mother reassures her that everything is “OK” with her dad and
brother but she worries about them anyway. She was offered a summer internship program with
a pharmaceutical company and is considering not taking it as she feels overwhelmed and is not
sure she can manage moving to the east coast for the summer. She reports having a couple of
“episodes” while at home studying, where her heart races, she feels shaky, and had difficulty
concentrating on her work. This prompted her to seek treatment at an urgent care clinic last
month and she was provided a prescription for quetiapine. “They said it would help me sleep
and feel less anxious.” She also describes being easily startled when someone taps her on the
shoulder. This happened in class and she was embarrassed by her response. JA states she has
taken a friend’s medication for anxiety a couple of times and that it “calms her immediately.”
She also reports seeing a therapist for several sessions a couple of months ago with little
improvement, so she stopped.
