Most unfortunate experiences. Such events are both psychologically affecting, but also through the changes in hormones, can be upsetting in other ways as well. Don't leave your job, they're too hard to get when you need one. BUt DO see a good psychiatrist if possible, or at elast a good GP, for a proper assesment and a discussion of treatment options --- it sounds as though you may very ell have developed a Depression, which can have the sort of effects you describe. but fortunately, it responds really well to proper treatment.
