Depressed, paranoid, and restless - how to treat depression ?

User Profile
Hi, I don't know what is actually wrong with me. I'm very depress, paranoid, and restless. I sleep about 4-5 hours a day. my stomach is bloated and I have consent thirst and migranes. I haven't been to a doctor in about 2 years. I can't afford one right now anyways.
I need someone to talk too. I need help. My marriage is falling apart. I just walked out of my job 2 months ago for no good reason.
i really think i'm going crazy. I just turned 21 years old but in my head I feel 16 all over again. I just want to be happy again.
What should i do??

Depressed, paranoid, and restless - how to treat depression ?
given your description, it seems that you could be experiencing depression. Treating depression is not easy. In addition to medical support, you'll also need great support from your closest relatives and friends. At this moment, the closest person to you is probably your husband. You should talk to him and explain your feelings and problems.

You should definitely change you way of living. Stop using alcohol and drugs. Work is also very important. Concentrating on some work can help you to relax your mind from depressive thoughts.
You can consult some psychologist or psychiatrist about your condition. Medical help includes psycho-therapy and medications would also be useful.
