Depressed and unmotivated

Im 25, recently girlfriend of 4 years broke up with me for my over possessiveness and short tempered behaviour. I went into deep depression, which is affecting my life. I am unable to concentrate on my work, I dont feel like doing my job or work towards anything new in my career. I dont have any hobbies or doesnt find happiness in anything I do. I bought a flat which is a big thing for someone at this age, I doesn't any happiness in it. I don't go out with friends , I stay away emotionally with my parents, I get angry fast. I think about my ex and my mood fluctuates from sad to depression where I cry. I was depressed earlier when in relationship, if I werent depressed she would have been with me. She couldnt understand me. I am also having social phobia and too much self conscious about what people think about me, are they looking at me and all. I am all lost in my life. I really dont know what to do :(

Hello..., Life changes, such as getting a regular good night's sleep, keeping to a healthy diet,reducing your alcohol intake and getting regular exercise, can help you feel more in control and more able to cope. activities such as meditation, breathing exercises and learning ways to think about problems differently. Tools such as self-help books and online counselling can be very effective.
