I think the sadness comes from a broken heart.
I agree that the stages of death theories may be in play, but I also think it is a normal response to betrayal.
Don't beat yourself up for it. Its a good sign that your emotions are progressing away from the anger. As we all know, anger corrodes its vessel. Its good to move from it.
Find something beautiful to focus on. Something that always brings joy. For me, it is playing the piano. Find something that depends on only you. Like planting a new rose? Maybe a veggie that you like? Start making a quilt? Do you paint or crochet or knit? Everyone has half-finished projects....drag one of yours out. If not, maybe go for a long walk at sunset and look at the stars come out?
Any activity is better than stagnation. If you can't bring yourself to be active at the moment, then try a guided meditation (there's a glut of them on youtube)--Or take a long bubble bath with candles and champagne!
The point here is to honor your process, however it is unfolding in your life. And take care of yourself.
