Mood Disorders

Your mood is your internal emotional experience of your world and all things in it. It affects the way you think, feel, and behave. It impacts the way you interact with others, the way you think about things, and how you respond to problems.

Sometimes, mood disorders develop and severely impact the way you perceive life, relationships, and even your sense of who you are and your self-worth. If this has happened to you, you may be finding that this disorder has the power to rob you of pleasure, purpose, determination, energy, sleep, self-control, focus, appetite or appetite control, alertness, productivity, and other things that are essential to your definition of what makes life satisfying.
