Guilt is depression: Please read the other responses as they may be helpful. I recommend that you interpret your guilt as a symptom of depression. Part of being depressed is often feeling unworthy of help. Thinking you deserve help less than anyone else is your low self-esteem and not reality. Reach out to the physically disabled through volunteer work if you want to help but don't punish yourself with guilt.

Keep a sleep log.: You should express your concerns to your treating doctor. You should also keep a sleep log so you will be able to track the way the medication is influencing your sleep. In addition you may find that taking the medication in the morning as opposed to the evening changes the degree to which the medication impacts your sleep. A log will help you see if it is the medication causing sleeplessness.

Interesting question: Anecdotally supersternal notch is associated with repressed passion or rage but please rule out respiratory or cardiovascular problems before considering a psychological mechanism. Medical causes put aside it is more noticeable in some women and men with pale skin. It is normal for the body to change a little when it is nervous it is just more visible in some people due to natural variations.
