Hello
Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.

As per your details, you are possibly having underlying depression. For this consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation. Following treatment strategies would be helpful-

1) Antidepressants like SSRIs (escitalopram, sertarline, paroxetine etc)
2) Antianxiety agents like clonazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam etc
3) Psychotherapy/ Counselling sessions
4) Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, deep breathing etc

Hope it helps
Good luck
Regards

Dear,
You are emotional, thats all.
Sadness and worries are norml in life,
and crying is moch more normal when faced with reality.
Your state of mind is due to the truths you are facing.
But soon you will learn that the truths are truths and we have to face it.
We learn to adjust with every situation, even the harshest, aren't we?
That's it.
When emotions over whelm you, think about those who are less privilaged than you.
Wish good future.

Hello.....
Thanks for your query. Loss of a beloved one or separation can indeed give rise to above symptoms. They may be part of what is referred to as bereavement reaction which is considered a normal phenomenon, part of adjustment disorder or depressive disorder. Hence, i suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation. The treatment includes:
1. Antidepressants like SSRI group of drugs
2. Psychotherapy interventions like CBT/ Cognitive behavioural therapy
3. Supportive counselling
Yoga, meditation can also be beneficial for you. You can also try out breathing relaxation exercises. Wish you good health.
Regards
