Depression

I am suffering from acute depression and have been feeling bit insecure lately. I am paranoid and also have emotional outbursts and cry a lot. I am not able to sleep well and suffering from insomnia. Recently i have been facing problems in college with my friends and i feel like i should shut out everyone from my life. people think very low of me and i cannot discuss it with anyone.

Meet a psychologist or psychiatrist at the earliest to understand what you are going through in a better way and to seek treatment for the same. I am intrigued by the way u r labeling ur condition and symptoms. Have you met a mental health professional before or if it's googling of your symptoms, I suggest u get information from a better source- may be a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist as the information from online can be misinterpreted or misleading. Do not unnecessarily label yourself.
Next Steps
consult a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist who can assess and help you understand what you are going through better and treat you for the same. good luck :)
