Get professional: Help. Rather than be miserable - accept assistance. Start out with a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation. This will help with development of an individualized treatment plan. It is likely that psychiatric medications may be indicated. Talking therapy is very important. Cognitive behavioral therapy is often effective. Take care.

Psychosis/ suicide: The triad Depression Anxiety and Paranoia are not a good combination and you really need to be evaluated by a psychiatrist especially if you are having thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else. I would advise you to go to an urgent care if you are not sleeping well or at all and if your mood / how you feel, doesn't change after a good night sleep. NO ALCHOL, NO CIGS, NO REFFER, URGENT CARE
