At times, we can get affected by events around us in a way that can shake us to the core, albeit transiently. That happens to everyone. However, since you have been experiencing these issues for the past 2 months, I would suggest that you see a psychiatrist for an evaluation to determine the exact cause and treatment. Take care.
