Jordan, I understand that you have experienced a great deal of loss in your life recently. Based on your symptoms of not being able to sleep, eat, or concentrate, it sounds like you may benefit from talking to a grief counselor. Your doctor may be able to recommend one or you can call a couple of therapists and ask them if they treat grief.
