Yes, I felt like a lost a bit of what inspired me to chase after goals and be spontaneous and travel. Its not something I could ever change back to, its a matter of adapting.

Yes I did. The weekend we broke up, I didn't sleep more than a couple hours a night. I lost my appetite completely and only ate a few pretzels throughout the day. I was an absolute zombie, going through the day feeling numb and lifeless. The quote from The Hunger Games quote came to mind: "She almost stopped living when he died." My ex wasn't dead, but I did stop living.
That feeling continued for 6 months and I had actually begun to lose hope that I would ever be happy again. Melodramatic, I know, but I just knew that even if I could manage to fall in love again, it would never compare to how I felt about this boy. Like you, I was a different person after the breakup.
Luckily, he came back to me. We've now been back together for just over a year and we live together.
