I use to be able to handle life, But I am struggling big time now
I feel so alone, so helpless, so stressed, I cannot confront anything. Until a few months ago for so many yaers I was able to confront things, people would say I am the calmest person they know, now I feel I am sliding away, I fear issues, I fear people and my heart is very sore.

So sorry to hear about this, ? ! Many of us get stressed at work, and it can be worst at two levels, at the lowest levels, where you feel you have no power to influence anything ; and at the higher levels, where you tend to be more solitary and lacking in direct support.
What you describe may or may not be Depression, but sounds most like Burnout ; and skilled PSychotherapy would be the way to go.
