    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    One way to get past this problem is to keep your right hand strumming constant i.e. keep strumming the pattern regardless of what your left hand is doing. In other words, do not wait for your left hand to completely switch to the next chord. Keep playing the song in this way. Initially it will sound bad because you cannot switch to the next chord in time but keep practicing and you will get it.

    Patience is the key

    I think changing from Em to D is one of the simplest things a rhythm guitarist can do.So I suppose you are a beginner as far as chords playing is concerned.Have patience and practice more without getting upset.
    Play at slow tempo.Count 1 2 3 4 on Em then change to D and again count 1 2 3 4. Come back to Em.Repeat it many times.

    Just remember to play it very slowly in the beggining.
