Hey Zoya - counselling seems your best route.
If you were a friend of mine telling me these things I'd say "If you want to get a job that is not academia simply put on your cv 6years of being a mother while studying for a PhD".
It's highly unlikely not getting the PhD (in industry) will make any difference to your chances of landing the role.
In time you will feel better and look back at this and wonder what all the fuss was about.
P.S I have had a very ill child and nothing compares to that. No matter what struggles I have I know they are not remotely close to how bad watching your child suffer is. In a weird way it has given me a resolve I never knew I had.
