There is something that many people consider just a small nuisance, and many others rarely (if ever) even consider---but it consistently causes me a great deal of anxiety. What is it?

Title relevant?
"it" - some physical object? some noise? some event?
Can "it" be experienced only by you, by the people from near where you live, or by all the people in the world?
Place relevant? Time relevant?
Does "it" remind you of something>?

So you're more affected by "it" because of where you live?

Is it only your specific location that is affected, or are there people who live other places (far away) that are similarly affected?

Are there some times when you are bothered by it more than others? Certain days? Times of day?

Would the people who rarely consider it think about it only on certain days? certain times of day?

Do you live near some fault line? near the ocean? near a timezone?
Is it on predictable days that you will be bothered?
Predictable times of day?

The daylight saving regulations are different where you work and where you live?

Does this take part in a specific country? Or two specific countries? Or three?

Does your work involve a lot of travel? To places with different daylight saving regulations? Or is there simply some other 'international' aspect of your work?

Is it the phenomenon of 'daylight saving' in itself that gives you anxiety? You wish it wasn't practised at all? Because it makes night fall "earlier"? Or is the risk of confusion/unawareness, making it easy to miss appointments and the like?

Right. Of course DST makes night fall later... But is the time of sunrise relevant then? That it's dark for a longer time in the morning?

Does this anxiety have to do with your work at all? Do you work during early hours? Do you bring out newspapers? Does the darkness make it harder for you to perform part of your work? For example, seeing something?

Does it involve something which keeps to the same time schedule despite daylight saving time starting? (so that it becomes "earlier")

Animals involved?

And also something whose time table changes? (i.e. stays on the same clock dates) For example a bus time table?

Is it especially troublesome the nights you have to set the clocks backwards and forwards? And still troublesome other days?
More troublesome after setting clocks forward or back?
Daylight savings is recognized where you live?
Are you more bothered at work? home? either?

Does something become physically more difficult after daylight savings (fall time)?
Is you problem specific to the time it gets dark?
If you lived somewhere else, you wouldn't have such a problem? 10 miles away? 100 miles away? different city? state?
Is there one specific time each day that you are bothered? or just all night?

Clarification: Is it a problem only because it gets darker earlier?

Still a problem 500 miles away? 1000 miles?
The certain cities that you wouldn't be bothered if you lived in, is that just based on distance from something?
And you said certain cities would still give you a problem, but not any states in the US?
Does the problem have something to do with something that you typically do at night?
Is there someone else involved?

Clarification: Is it a problem only because it gets darker earlier? yes, with a little tiny ish

Still a problem 500 miles away?yes 1000 miles?yes. about 1500 to 2500 miles would be much less of a problem
The certain cities that you wouldn't be bothered if you lived in, is that just based on distance from something? yes
And you said certain cities would still give you a problem, but not any states in the US? all of the US WOULD give me a problem, except the couple of towns that don't observe DST
Does the problem have something to do with something that you typically do at night? no
Is there someone else involved? no

I'm not clear--is it the switch from daylight saving time to standard time (moving the clock back) that concerns you? Or the switch to daylight saving time in the Spring? Or the entire concept of DST?

Would it matter if the 1500 to 2500 miles was in a paricular direction (e. g. North/South/East/West)? I'm assuming you're three hours ahead of me and five behind the forum, right?

Is it harder to find something?
The other side of the equator wouldn't be a problem?
People living next door to you don't worry about it like you do?
The thing that gives you anxiety, does it involve you:
physically moving (climbing, swimming, running, surfing, etc.)?
being stationary?
looking at something (like reading)?
being in a vehicle?
being outside vs inside?
is it in your leisure time (as opposed to work or other commitments) that you are bothered?

Is it specifically during mealtimes, or just happen to be around the same time that people tend to eat?

Is it a problem for you because of something you choose to do (e.g. go for walks, write, etc), or because of something that is naturally different about you (e.g. some eye condition)?

Does it involve a specific activity that you perform at night?
If so, do you perform the activity throughout the day? throughout the year?

So this is a trait that is only found in women?
Would the trait be seen as a negative? positive? neither?
Is it something you're born with? Develops over time? Only lasts for a certain period in your life, then goes away?

'California dreaming' relevant? (on such a non-DST day) yes...see next answers...
If so, is dreaming relevant? sleep? see last answer...
Something about falling asleep? see next answer
Or it's just general "dreaming about summertime" that you're referring to with the title?yes

HINT:
I've said that the earlier nightfall makes doing several things yopishly harder, regardless of whether I am at work or home, and regardless of whether it is day or night when I am doing these things. I've also said that I have a sort of condition that contributes to this.
Think about how something could be yopishly difficult, and think about what kinds of conditions could make an infinitely wider spectrum of things yopishly more difficult to do.

Does the condition affect one of your senses?
Is it a condition that affects one of your organs (heart, kidney, liver)? Muscular?
Is it more of a "thinking" condition (dyslexia, OCD, etc)?

SAD? YES!!!

****************SPOILER*****************

I have a moderate form of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder, also known as seasonal depression). If you don't know what that is, see the wikipedia article here.

My SAD is moderate, not severe, but affects me a lot, and I dread the end of DST in autumn because of it. Turning the clocks back is like taking me off of an anti-depressant. No matter how much I attempt to prepare myself for it, it hits me like a ton of bricks. I become irritable, extremely over-emotional, I lose motivation to do even my favorite things. I end up getting a lot less done, gaining weight, having trouble getting myself to exercise, not wanting to talk to my friends, etc. When I start feeling like that (usually within 2 days of setting the clocks back) I have to force myself to remember that this feeling that my life is falling to pieces is just the time of year, and make myself get going. But it's VERY hard...and knowing it will be so hard makes me dread the end of DST even more!!

So, while some people live in places that don't observe DST and have no reason to think about it, and others only see it as a small irritation of having to remember to change the clocks, getting ready for that change causes me a great deal of anxiety.

Congrats to Sunshine for figuring it out. (An appropriate person to do so, as the lack of sunlight is quite relevant) And thanks to everyone else who played. Now we'll see if can motivate myself to write another puzzle....
