I feel your Doctor should be consulted and counseling should be sought. Doctors can evaluate the physical conditions, offering guidance on keeping a healthy body and mind and antidepressants may be prescribed for the short term. Professional counseling can help in keeping a healthy perspective with talk therapy and processing traumatic events. Also, getting support from friends and family by letting loved ones know that life is difficult at this time can surround you with positive influence.
Please know coming here and sharing with the members was a very brave step to take. You are reaching out for help and this is a good thing.
Take care and stick with us.

I am so glad you talked with your Mom and that you have identified some stressors in your life. Now that you have an idea what is causing your feelings of distress you can start setting goals to deal with each issue.
Talking to your physician is a great start. I am proud of you for speaking up about your problems and recognizing you need help.
We are always here to listen, support and advice so please do share when you feel like it.
Take care and be well,
