Our expert says:
See a counsellor, preferabl someone using the most proven effective modern method, cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, CBT. This not only gives you someone to talk with, but can teach you to better handle all these issues, to be less unhelpfully sensitive and more effectively able to make friends, and deal with the problems that have been distressing you.
I'm not sure why you say you are not able to see a shrink - a service should be available at your local state / provincial hospital if you don't have medical aid, and with the cost of staying miserable, the cost of private counselling is seriously worth considering.
