Does the excessive thought about sleep issue     worries you and causing distress into day to     day life activities. If there is sleep & thought problems in term of above mentioned points ,you need to talk a Psychiatrist , bcoz apart from above issues there are numerous causes of sleep problems that will be not easy to write everything here.

There is a stressors as you mentioned. There is preoccupation of thoughts regarding your personal issues. Whether it justifies a psychiatric diagnosis or not should be ruled out, and whether it need just medication or therapy should also be ruled out.
Next Steps
please consult a mental health professional.
