People may feel depressed and not know why. They may become more angry than seems warranted by the situation. They may not be able to maintain adequate focus and may miss details that compromise their performance. They may not achieve what they know they are capable of. They may feel fabulous and become incredibly productive for periods and then feel they are mired in lethargy and not know why. They may compromise their lives by spending too much time engaging in rituals. All of these problems and more can be carefully addressed by combining psychotherapy, lifestyle improvements, and with the judicious use of medications.
