I too am sorry to hear your story. You are surely still in grief and shock from your traumatic experience, and are naturally going to have these effects, which as Lgm and Hibee mentioned should be evalutated as for PTSD.
Are you currently seeing someone to help you to work through this process? No one can be expected to go through this alone without help.
I would recommend seeking help in the form of a therapist...or if this is not a possibility for you...a group for survivors of violent acts/trauma.
In both cases, you will be able to talk about
your situation freely, and gain tools to help you to overcome your fears, and feel safe in your home again.
If you need some help with researching survivor groups on-line, let me know, and I will do my best to help you with that.
Keep posting here as well if you find it helpful. We care and are here to listen anytime.
