Suffering from depression fter breakup, hard to concentrate, can't understand simple things. What to do?

HI I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION FOR 8 MONTHS NOW. BUT I STILL DONT BELIEVE THIS IS REAL. I HAD A HORRIBLE BREAKUP WITH MY BF. SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN IN SHOCK FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS UNTIL WE SPOKE OF IT. AFTER THAT TRUTHS HAVE BEEN REVEALING ABOUT HIS LIES. HIS ALSO ACCUSED ME OF BEING A BAD PERSON AND BREAKING MY OWN HOME. I GUESS I COULDNT HANDLE IT. I HAVE BEEN FEELING A MIXTURE OF FEELING: GUILT THAT MAYBE I AM A BAD PERSON AND MAYBE I RUINED MY OWN LIFE AND RELATIONSHIP, ANGER, SADNESS, RECALLING ALL THE GOOD THINGS N BAD FROM THE START OF OUR RELATIONSHIP TILL THE END. THE HORRIBLE THINGS HE SAID JUST PLAYS IN MY HEAD OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL I CANT TAKE IT NO MORE. I AM BREATHLESS AND ABSOLUTELY DRAINED AND HAVE TO SLEEP. I GET DISTURBING DREAMS, LIKE SEEING THE WORLD OF FIRE OR HIM APOLOGIZING. I GET PANIKY WHEN I HEAR ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIS MARRIAGE OR HIS PERSONAL LIFE. IS THIS ALL REALLY DEPRESSION? AM I REALLY SUFFERING FROM ALL THIS CRAZY DISORDERS? I HAVE SUCH HOPELESS VIEW ON LIFE NOW AND CANT GET MYSELF OUT OF IT. LATELY I CANT STOP SLEEPING. I AM ALWAYS SOOO TIRED. I SLEEP ALL NIGHT AND EVENING. I WORK DURING THE DAY BUT ITS REALLY HARD TO CONCENTRATE AND UNDERSTAND SIMPLE THINGS. I SOMETIME LOSE MYSELF IN THOUGHTS AND BECOME NUMB N MOTIONLESS N WOULD JUST STAIR IN SPACE WITHOUT MOVING A MUSCLE. I THINK I NEED HELP. WHAT DO I DO?

Hi,I am sorry to hear your plight and a painful breakup.You are suffering from depression.Its time you moved on in life,just the way your BF has moved on with his life.May be he was not worth being your partner.You need a change of place,go on a holiday with your loved ones.Also you need a professional help so consult a Psychiatrist and get counselling done.But remember its your strong will and the love of your family that can heal you.Be positive,its not the end of this World,move on.You have more important things to accomplish in life.Remember-"Change is the only constant in life" and I am sure you will overcome this hurdle and do well in life and will make your family proud.All the best and take care.
