Great that you have asked for advice. Often the biggest barrier is letting people know as you might feel that some may not understand or think you should be able to cope ..... no matter what.
Agree with the posts so far. It sounds like it is work related. So you could confidentially ask your Union representative what steps to follow to access help [as there will be many before you who already have sought and are receiving help..............and you may or may not know them].
You will be seeing your GP to let them know what you are experiencing and at some stage it would be good to have your partner attend also so they can understand what you are going through. The impact on relationships and home life can be puzzling to family members unless they understand it's not you but something happening to you.
There are important Psychological Treatments that work. Also medications can help a great deal for sleep, emotional outbursts and even dreams. Your GP can help you to start with. Often a referral to a Psychiatrist is needed. Talk to your GP and Union as work may help in your treatment if you choose to follow that path or privately.
All the best. THere are effective treatments in combination when you see a GP, Psychologist and Psychiatrist.
Your job may need to change to a role which is not frontline.
