Hi Space, welcome

For us veterans (in terms of experience) with mental illness I wished I knew more about my conditions when a lot younger.

A mixture of therapy, doctors advice, a doctors referral, peer groups like here, changes and research. That's going to have a lot of impact. Don't take away one item though or the house of cards fall and is less effective.

Changes- change of environment, hobbies, passions, career, schooling, better sleep pattern etc. are all good.

There are thousands more here. In the above threads just read the first thread unless you want to read further.

So I'd recommend a visit to your GP. Tackle this logically. It's a condition so you need help. Take the view, it can be fixed to a satisfactory level.
