In popular media, there is often a hunt for labels for psychological conditions. However, patients often experience symptoms that come from more than one diagnostic category, so attaching labels turns out to be of limited use. It also tends to happen that most symptoms are specific to each individual and will manifest themselves in unique ways for any given patient. With that in mind, it is possible to mention some broad diagnostic categories with which people often come to treatment, without suggesting that they are all-encompassing.
