Help fix my run-on sentence


The importance of noticing the above warning signs and physical symptoms can save a loved one from hiding their pain, which feeds depression due to the person’s guilt of keeping it inside them.


This is for a psychology paper due in about 20 hours from now online. I am trying to suggest that a person that notices somebody's warning signs and symptoms of depression can help them. By noticing, it keeps the person that is depressed from possibly hiding it inside them. This is because some depressed people, especially men, don't want people to know. They may feel that nobody will understand and think of them as week. Not expressing it and keeping it buried deep down inside brings guilt. This guilt makes the depression even worse because the depression feeds on guilt, sorrow and misery. So this sentence, which looks like a run-on, is very important to my paper. However, grammar is crucial and I can't afford any grammar deductions. Can somebody help me break this up into 2 sentences while keeping the thought?

You never know what is going to happen in the future and whether it’s going to be good or bad. You can’t prevent these things from happening either, they just happen all of a sudden when you least expect it. Every day I remember the day, the day where I felt like I was riding a roller coaster but without laughter and excitement. The day I felt like I was having a nightmare that I would never wake up from and the day I felt like the world was coming to an end. It was the worst day of my life. This was the day I got in a car accident.
