In brief: Self help
You need to connect to others.
Talk with family, friends and your minister or priest or help line. Maybe you can see a social worker, therapist or psychologist while waiting for your appt. This will be more useful than anything you get in a store. Your doctor can then evaluate you whether you need medications.
