The best way to deal with this is to have an evaluation by a mental health professional, eg psychiatrist or psychologist. The issues are all treatable .

Have a physical exam by a Dr. to know if you have a physical illness. If cleared consult with a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy to help with ZOOM & a Psychiatrist for medication. Sleep is fundamental to good mental & physical health. If you are not sleeping well ask for a sleep study.
