How to get over that wall?

After a year of effort, progress and gain, I've hit a physical and mental "wall". What is the cause and how can I overcome it?

After a year which started with a relationship break up (following a previously horrendous year) and loss of job, I've worked extremely hard to start two new businesses, regain respect and position within my industry, reestablished the damaged relationship, lost weight, got fit and generally got back on my feet. But now at this crucial time, just when I need to be capitalising on all this good work I find myself utterly exhausted. I've been in bed (working from a laptop as little as possible) for the last 4 days with no energy or motivation, sleeping erratic hours (6 hours last night, 3 this afternoon) and zero mental ability.
I thought after 4 days rest I'd be back on my feet but I'm still struggling. I have an important wedding to attend this weekend, meetings next week and a crucial deal to conclude within the next two weeks. But all I want to do is sleep. I don't feel stressed, I'm keen to keep up momentum on these new projects and gains but I'm struggling.
What is this? And what can I do to get back in action?
