DEPRESSION/PANIC: Get an evaluation from a psychiatrist to help identify what depression/panic means to you and whatever else may be bothering you. Consider recommendations for medication if any are given. Get a referral for a reputable psychotherapist to speak with. Meds and therapy combined are most optimal; no just one or the other.

Be Mindful: Sadness and panic can be debilitating. But, it usually does not last forever (though it might seem like it does). If you aren't already seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist you might schedule an appointment to get things checked out. In the meantime practice being mindful and patient. Deep breaths. Calm.

Get help: ask your friends or family to help you. Have someone help you get to the doctor as soon as possible. If you are having thoughts of harming yourself call 911 and go immediately to the ER. Depression and anxiety are treatable and you can feel a lot better with the proper help.
