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.
