Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to health care magic

I can understand well the situation you are going through. All symptoms described by you points towards "reactive depression".

Yes it can surely end. You have to consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management. With drugs like SSRIs/ benzodiazepines etc and psychotherapy/counselling sessions, you will be alright.

Wish you good health
Thanks and leave a review if possible
