Gosh, so you are actually human ? That shatters my illusions ! So unlike so many of our readers ,,,, Seriously, you were so conscientious and so wrapped into your daughter's problems that I suspected you might be neglecting your own needs. Sorry to hear you had such an unpleasanty episode, but I'm pleased to hear you've been making a good recovery.
You seem to be describing a degree of anxiety and indeed social anxiety as a remaining problem area, and of course you need to discuss this with your psychiatrist. Maybe a change in your medication could help ( some effective antidepressants, for instance, tend to add a bit to anxiety in some people ) ; and adding counselling of the CBT sort could help you to gain more control over the anxiety when it arises. There is no need to become disabled by social anxiety - and maybe you can pass on some of the CBT methods you would learn, to your husband ?
