Very emotional, but not PND?

Im due to go back to work soon, I've been off for more a year (sick leave, mat leave, annual leave). It's been rough, LO was very prem, in hospital intensive care for the first 7 months, couple of surgeries, ongoing health issues when he came home (which have thankfully now almost resolved).

I feel very lucky to have him after all that and generally I'm feeling happy, so don't think I have PND. However, I get very emotional at the drop of a hat - at adverts, reading the school newsletter - ridiculous things. I think I have a bit of PTSD if I'm honest, but as I'm generally ok I don't really want to take ads.

But I'm worried about what will happen when I go back to work, having to deal with rude/awkward colleagues/customers - I don't want to burst into tears on them!

Any advice? Unfortunately not going back is not an option.
