Hello. It sounds like you are suffering quite a bit with what could be symptoms of anxiety or depression or other mental illness that keep you from enjoying life to the fullest and functioning at your best. I would first recommend that you go to a primary care physician to rule out any physical diagnosis that may be impacting your thoughts and moods, such as thyroid issues.
You have listed several symptoms, all of which could be diagnostic of a variety of issues. Depression and anxiety can be caused by many things, such as genetic makeup, traumatic experiences, negative thinking, and poor ability to cope with the stress of daily living.
Symptoms of depression include:
Emotional Symptoms:

1.     Sadness and or irritability
2.     Feelings of worthlessness/guilt

Cognitive (Things related to a person’s thoughts) Symptoms:

3.     Difficulty concentrating
4.     Thoughts of suicide/death
5.     Not being able to enjoy things/difficulty having fun

Physiological Symptoms:

6.     Impaired sleep—sleeping too much or sleeping too little
7.     Impaired appetite—eating too much/weight gain or eating too little/ weight loss
8.     Impaired energy—getting tired easily
9.     Agitation/restlessness or lack of motivation

I am sorry I cannot definitively diagnose you from here with the list of symptoms you have reported. I hope you are able to find some relief.
