I;m so very sorry to hear about this, a. Whatever else is happening you sound Depressed as well as discouraged. And there are probably other psychological effects of the trauma to which you were exposed. And I've noticed, from my own experience, how often when people seem to be praising you for "how strong" you are, they are actually giving you instructions to be strong, because the stronger you are, the less they need to feel they should do something to help.
Therapy can indeed change one's life, but not usually primarily by changing the external situations, but by changing the way you choose to respond to them. Its not a question of being able to go back to where things were, but of finding a better place to be now and in the future, of building an acceptably content future for both of you. You don't mention where you are, but check out what psych facilities are available at your nearest medical school, or large state hospital. Call FAMSA, which can advise on reasonably priced counsellors you might see in addition. You need and deserve proper treatment of your state of mind, and can and will ( if you allow it to happen ) be feeling more positive and hslpful before long.
