In brief: Help, yoga, exercise

It's important to pursue a course of therapy and medication prescribed by a psychiatrist.
It's also important to take steps to involve oneself in activities that help build the resilience of the brain like regular exercise, yoga, and meditation.

These are different diagnoses that can be confusing and overlap.
Get a psychiatric evaluation from a reputable psychiatrist (who may or may not prescribe appropriate medications) and also find an equally reputable psychotherapist to help put words to your feelings, and find out the meaning of whatever you diagnosis might be to YOU.
