Very often, I find, these sort of episodes are related to never having actually worked out what one's goals are --- you feel unfulfilled, without really knowing what might fulfil you. So the drastic changes you make are essentially at random, and often no more likely to satisfy you than what you're doing already. Its no silly to feel this way, indeed almost inevitable, but mere action not based on a rational plan isn't likely to succeed. So seeing a therapist / counsellor could be more genuinely satisfying, enabling you to clarify what would be a more fulfilling way of life.
I'm sure there's nothing missing in your brain, and what is missing in your life is probably a plan, and CBT type therapy could help you find one and keep to it.
I like Garfield's response, espeially as Frankl was a friend of mine. And I also applaud the warning against seekiing the teeth-chattering epiphanies Hollywood falsely leads us to expect.
In your response to Garfield, I wonder why, while appreciating life's little things, you feel the need to expect ANY response from or involvement of, other people. If you base your expectations of life on what OTHER people ouyght to do for you and to you, you are bound to be disappointed. Life is about what YOU do, by yourself, autonomously, which is not at all the same as being alone.
