No interest in life
Hi, I got great family and friends. Good job, high degrees. My problems are as below, 1) either I sleep too much or can't sleep till 3am: fear of future and other thoughts keep me awake 2) no interest on food: I just can't eat normally anymore - lost 8kilos. I hate food now. 3) ambitions: I got high ambitions and people around me say I am very good at my work but I started feeling - is this is what I want to do and what am I really good at? What is the point of working hard anyways I die someday and everybody will forget. 4) no hope and losing self confidence: though everything is great - recently I took emotional intelligence test. I scored high on traits that are hard to gain but foundation traits like self confidence, trust we're very low. Overall, I don't see any purpose of this life. I had super fun till age 27 and now i am 31 and it is very boring. It is damm difficult to get appointment with psychiatric in Mumbai. Please advise.

Hello, looks like you experiencing a sense of meaninglessness. Or what they call as Existential Crisis. The boredom, the lack of finding pleasure in things, poor appetite, and sleep issues may also indicate depression. Please visit a counselling psychologist so the meaninglessnes and depression (if there is), can be explored further. Counselling can help you find that lost sense of purpose and instill a sense of fulfillment.
Next Steps
