    Good evening. I'm very sorry about your loss and what you have gone through. It's really not easy. It seems you have become dependent on the sleeping pills and the tramadol. This is called addiction. What I would advise you to do first is to see a doctor for review. Some basic tests would be done to find out the state of your health. Eventually, you would need to see a psychologist. But first things first. Please try to eat healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables and also lots of water. And try to see a doctor as soon as you can. I'm always available if you require any advice. Take care
