you have been through a stressful situation.
you are undergoing a phase of low moods called depression.
however you know about it and you can combat it well as this is the right time.
do not worry about going to the doctor. bad time has passed off. take help from doctors about your further plans. get yourself evaluated as to why you had the abortion.

try to focus on positive things. try to relax by doing yoga etc.
try taking support from friends and family when they offer.
plan ahead for life.
and most important of all remember to never loose hope as life always provides chances for us to be happy.
i hope i am able to help you.
i case of further doubt contct us at health care magic

The symtoms you present sugest more of a Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). there is also a possibilty of secondry depression. Meet a clinical psychologist or a psychitrist at the earliest.
