I'm sorry that you are going though this. It is a horrible thing to have to endure. The good news is that there is help out there. The above poster suggested seeing a Psych. Doctor and that is a wonderful start. Even starting with your primary care physician is a good place to start, but it is you that has to make this first move.
I've gone though some of the very hard times you are speaking of, and it often feels so confusing. One minute you are rather euphoric and the next minute you are trying to find yourself out from the bottom of a black hole..... so tough to handle.
Please seek the help from a medical professional. Do it sooner rather than later and I bet you'll be glad you did. Help is there, but we have to go after it.
I've been experiencing the same exact thing for about a year or so now, I'm do scared and confused, I wonder what triggered this. It started after I started taking Zoloft for depression and it didn't work so I stopped it.
