Our expert says:
There's actually a load of research showing not only that stress affects our lives, but that if you add up the scores for all the streesful events we face within a year ( and even something like winning a lottery is highly stressful ) then when the total score goes over a certain amount, our chances of developing a physical or psych illness are significantly higher. Obviously some such events are beyond our control, but to the extent that we can control at least the timing of some of the others, we can usefully try to avoid adding too many of them within one year.
Sounds like a growing Depression is possible, and that counselling would help --- ceck what might be available from a reachable medical school Dept of Psychology, or your local state hospital. And if the depression is becoming significant, your GP might be able to help with an assessment and some medication.
