Is it depression? It’s time to find out and it's time for change.

"It's common to feel uncertain or uncomfortable in the face of change. Most people experience stress when negotiating demands of college or a career, managing relationships, dealing with unintentional or intentional body changes, adapting to adulthood, transitioning during mid- and late-life, or losing a loved one, for example. Sometimes, though, stressors like these can throw you off balance and summon your worst demons. Uncertainty and discomfort can morph into self-doubt, disappointment, crippling feelings of inferiority, anxiety, or compulsive behavior. As a result, you might feel hopeless, alienated, misunderstood, and as if life were meaningless."
