This could indeed be Depression, and there's clearly also stress and anxiety in there. Arrange to see a good local psychiatrist as soon as possible, for an assessment and treatment advice --- whether privately, or throuhgh your nearest medical school or major government clinic or hospital. This condition responds well tontreatment and this will obviously benefit you and your child ( who needs and loves you ). Nopthing turns you into a different person, whether in 2 weeks or longer --- and that's good --- there's nothing wrong with the person you are, except for a depression which needs treatment. Numerous effective antidepressants are around, most of which may start to show benefits earlier, but which all need 2 to 4 weeks to show their full benefits. And check out availability, as well as the meds, of counselling, to help you deal with the issues that are concerning you, and which are more than chemical in nature
