This does not sound like sepsis at all.  Your symptoms are diverse and really could be caused by a number of things including tiredness, depression, and even Lyme Disease.  Have you been to your regular doctor for a physical? IF not, I suggest that you do when you get back from your trip.  It will give you a good starting point.  I doubt that this is related to your abortion directly (the exception being anemia).  I hope this helps.
