I am going insane, what do I do?

I work night shifts and I am afraid to get fired but I feel like I need to take absence. I have been suffering with insomnia these past couple of nights and I am only 18. I've been feeling horrific and my mom will not listen to me she will just argue and argue and argue.

I have been suffering with insomnia these past couple of nights and I am only 18. I've been feeling horrific and my mom will not listen to me she will just argue and argue and argue. Last night at work I was feeling dizzy and like I was about to faint. I only slept for 6 hours today and this is the first sleep i've had in days.
