I am suffering from depression, insomnia and breathing troubles. I feel like committing suicide. Please help.Last Updated - Fri, Jan 04 2019
I regularly suffer from Severe headaches, severe sadness, all the time crying and very low self-esteem. I don't take interest in anything, not even in things that I used to love; always thinking bad, thinking 24*7. I don't feel like doing anything even if want to, don't feel like eating, can't sleep at night.I face breathing troubles and it is extremely difficult at times.
I have become very weak mind wise. If there is a fight at home or some one talks loudly situation worsens, I start thinking about past and future which makes the situation bad. I fear a lot of things.Each and everything makes me think. I want to die. I have even asked for a gun for dying.
My parents and sister create negativity around. My father used to discourage me in the past. Now also says something which hurts and sometimes makes fun. He too has got fed up of the whole thing. I have already been counselled by 8 people. I have become dependent on people. Please help.

Insomnia can be caused by psychiatric and medical conditions, unhealthy sleep habits, specific substances, and/or certain biological factors. It's important to first understand what could be causing your sleep difficulties.
Examples of medical conditions that can cause insomnia are:
- Gastrointestinal problems such as reflux
- Endocrine problems such as hyperthyroidism
- Nasal/sinus allergies
- Neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease
- Low back pain
- Chronic pain
Insomnia & Depression
The symptoms of depression, such as low energy, loss of interest or motivation, feelings of sadness or hopelessness, and insomnia can be linked, and one can affect the other by making it worse. But regardless of which came first, the good part is that both are treatable .
