Given your symptoms (“ feel very depressed”, “ have no energy to do anything”, “ head feel empty “, “ can't talk to my partner”, “feel low self worth”, “lack of self-esteem”, “cry for no reason”...), you are probably experiencing depression.

I can only suggest that you stop taking tramadol and consult a mental health professional.
