Lack of sleep casuing these problems??

Hey guys, I have been suffering with sleep problems for a couple of years now and its really getting me down. I struggle to sleep more than a couple of hours a night and now its even less. I have been seeing a psychologist for anxiety and also slight depression but since i have taken medication i sleep even worse and actually feel worse than before as i look so tired and my skin is starting to look worse which brings me down. I also struggle physically when i am playing sport now as i am so tired that my endurance has completely gone and i feel like i wanna be sick after a running for a short period.
I am wondering if all these problems could actually be related to my severe lack of sleep, personally i dont think i have depression as i notice my mood always fluctuates, i can be happy for a while but if i get into a bad spell of sleeping then it all goes down hill in a cycle, i start actually lying in bed thinking how do i go to sleep instead of it just happening and i cant switch my mind off when im in bed, i can feel so tired all day but as soon as i hit the bed i become so alert its untrue.
Anyway i was just wondering if i could actually be experiencing the anxiety and the slight depression because of lack of sleep, i mean i feel like i would kill for a coup, of quality nights sleep and i really believe i would feel a million times better as well.
