How Can Vanguard Psychiatry Help?
Consider the case of Vincent, who is experiencing mood swings, difficulty concentrating, sharp pains in his chest, sleeplessness, and constant worry due to his work situation. Vincent works in the grocery business, which is very fast paced and physically demanding. Recently he was given a supervisory position. When asked to describe his symptoms, he shared this story. “The pressure at work is constant. I come in an hour before the shift starts, get everyone’s task list ready, and then stay an hour after everyone else goes home. I feel like I’m going crazy, and I know the managers watch everything I do. A couple of weeks ago, I was not paying attention and accidentally injured my hand when stocking shelves. I thought I was going to lose my job because of this, and I still worry I’m going to get fired.” Vincent said he decided to give Dr. Defilippo a call because he feels he can’t take the stress anymore.
