    I felt like this from April-July.
    My first true love broke up with me.
    My childhood dog died.
    Stress of AS exams.

    I couldnt sleep in my bed, I had to sleep in another room.
    I got obsessed with my ex. He was always on my mind.
    I went crazy or so I thought.
    I couldn't bear to do normal things like go to the shop.
    I'd just cry cry and cry.
    I am a guy.
    My hair started to fall out. Which was confirmed by a specialist.

    My friends were all super concerned about me.
    I couldn't talk to people.
    I became obsessed with strange things, such as Jewishness.

    Have you seen a doctor about this? We aren't qualified to diagnose you with anything. It sounds like it would be worth talking to someone about this, maybe your GP? They'd be able to refer to other services if needed, and help you from here if you're still having problems

    Weather you had a breakdown or not (nobody here can really say), it certinally sounds like you were struggling a great deal and if you are still struggling I would suggest you seek profesional support. Your doctor can help you work out what is going on and how you can overcome it. Mind.org also has some good information and advice you could check out, including advice for your first doctors appointment about mental health.

    Anybody can go through struggles mentally in their life and there is loads of support out there. Therapy is usually a good first step and you can access this through your doctor. If you are still in full time education your school/ uni should also have a connection with a free counseling service which you could try. I think this can be helpful while you build up the courage to see a doctor.
