  • Well, it seems as though you have post traumatic stress disorder, also known as 'PTSD'. 
  • No need to worry, there are many ways to treat it. Turning to family and friends who will listen and offer comfort. Seeking out a mental health professional for a brief course of therapy. There's therapy,   medication, a clinical psychologist / psychiatrist.
