In brief: Many

It can be very hard to cope with any kind of emotional illness and requires a lot of support.
Unfortunately the stigma of mental illness adds to the challenges of coping, but therapy and other support groups are helpful and medications may also be needed. The national alliance for the mentally ill nami.Com is a good resource for local support groups.

It depends on the person.
Get a full psychiatric evaluation to determine what bothers you, and consider medication to take the edge off them symptoms. Next, get a referral to a reputable psychotherapist to discuss what your current emotional state and life experiences mean to YOU. Meds and therapy together are the most optimal approach, for the most part.
