Hello dear Practo user, you have described your problem perfectly in details. But what is the total duration of suffering? Any stressful event in your life? It's a clear case of depression but it is more severe. You should start antidepressant ASAP along with some councelling.
Next Steps
Tricyclic antidepressant along with mood stabilizer will be a good choice in this case.

Hi Dear You seem going through a lot at this early age. It is very important to experience all kinds of emotions as happiness. I can also sense that you are not able to involve yourself in work or pleasurable activities. Also there is a lot of stress you are experiencing. As a professional it is important that we know what are the precipitating factors to this. For better understanding a you can visit a clinical psychologist for a clinical assessment of the condition.
Next Steps
Visit a psychologist for counseling and therapy or a Psychiatrist for medication.
