That is traumatic, and could be Post Traumatic Stress disorder as well. It would probably be better to try and get some kind of help so that if you are in need of medication you can get some. Don't just expect to get over it soon, your body reacts to trauma different than depression. Depression can run in families and there are different types. I hope you feel you can talk to your S.O. about this, and that he is understanding of your situation.
