Do you have a trusted therapist you can talk to? You need to talk to someone face to face that can help you get through this. I fully understand as I had many times like this when I was working. For now you have to push yourself to do the best you can at work, and then get the help you need. If you are on medication than you need to discuss this with the doctor that prescribes the meds for you as well.

I pray you can get answers and relief soon. Stay strong!
