You probably need some supportive medication to just help you through this episode. If you are not eating or sleeping well, you probably have acute reactive depression due to what happened and you may need to take an antidepressant for a few months. It will help you sleep better and also just help you to cope with "life" until you feel better. It is not habit forming. Talk to your GP about this and don't be ashamed to also go for trauma counselling. If you can't eat, try using something like Nutramen T supplement (the powder that you mix with milk/water and drink instead of a meal) Try not to take the Neurofen on an empty stomach as it can cause an ulcer to form. Hope things get better - but ask help if things get too much for you.
