Apart from PTSD itself ( which is a possibility here ) there are a variety of other problems which follow such trauma, in us ordinary folks. You need a proper assessment by a suitably skilled specialist shrink, and treatment based on whatever diagnosis is made. Counsellng of some sorts helps ( CBT and some variants specifically aimed at trauma ) and so can some meds otherwise also used for depression.
With such assistance you can definitely master these fears and regain comfort and confidence in living alone. Your story is a reminder that material stuff is not the only or even the most valuable thing that such thieves steal from us.
