Dear S,
It certainly sounds as if you could have developed a clinical Depression, in which one's emotional responses to life slip out of relationship with the events of life, and one finds the gloomy aspect of everything. Fortunately it can be well and successfully treated --- see your doctor / psychiatrist for an assessment and advice on treatment, as soon as posible, so as not to spend more time being miserable than you already have. And return to this forum later, with fresh messages, and let us know how things develop
