Thanks for your query. I understand how your sister's loss has affected you. This is referred to as "bereavement" and normal grief reaction. I would suggest you XXXXXXX a trained clinical psychologist for "grief work" which means how to work through your grief and allow the scars to heal. You would require a psychiatric evaluation for depression or stress related disorders if the symptoms persist beyond 3 months by when the grief is normally resolved. Hope you found the information useful.
