I am sorry you are going through this.  In my experience, anxiety and panic can be very confusing and scary at first.  Have you ever got help through counseling?  I know for me just learning about it, made it much more easy to confront.  In my opinion, we tend to fear things we don't understand, but with a little knowledge it can shed some light on the issues.

I hate that you're going through this because I've been where you are and I am honestly still trying to overcome anxiety and worry. I saw a therapist once and she told me I wasn't that bad off and that I just needed to keep track of my worries in a journal and my negative thoughts to try and see where the anxiety was coming from. However I've done a lot of self help because I'm so afraid of getting on medication because I don't want to become a zombie to where the meds just act like a sedative or makes me feel like I was shot with a tranquilizer gun
