OK, ys this sounds like depression, and low self-esteem ( see what SADAG, number on this page ) can offer in support groups ). A divorce can have many impats, including a period of mourning and instability and a crisis of confidence in oneself. You have packed in within a relatively short period of time, a number of major stressors - koving country, unemployment, leaving friends and relationships behind, and being rather isolated. This adds to thediffiulty in coping and finding your feet again, but it remains possible.
What you're describing doesn't sound like Bipolar Disorder, which by definition visits both poles - both down into depression, and up into being too happy and over-active.
As for the experience of "libel" that unpleasant person has absolutely no power to hurt or bother you, except for the power you choose to give her.
