I'm glad you told us and that you called your T. And I admire your loyalty and sense of responsibility regarding your work. But you know what? In the grand scheme of things, YOU are much much more important than that work. Work can wait. Others can step in and figure things out. A temp can be hired. It may not be the way you'd do it, and it may be difficult for those in the office, but they'll deal.
Twenty years from now, it's not going to make one hoot of difference if you meet a deadline now. But it will make a huge difference if you aren't around 20 years from now. Your son is not going to care about your work responsibilities right now. He's going to want his mommy, not the notion that you completed a job.
And if you wave the white flag and the work folks do not understand, too bad for them. Your health is a private thing. They are not owed details. This is definitely a "This is what I need to do, and this is what I need from you (your workplace) to do it" situation.
Hang in there. Cut out all that is not vital to your wellbeing for now. Focus on coping. Sleep if it helps. The world will be here tomorrow, as will your T.
