So sorry for what you are going through, there are many here who have been through similar stiuations. Sometimes it just takes something to set off the trigger of panic and anxiety. Does it get better? YES, for some with therapy, for some like myself with medication. Don't be afraid of either. We all have good and bad days, even good months-years! I just try to get through the bad days and know it won't last forever. And take the Xanax if you need to, guilt free, do not let your self suffer, it just makes the anxiety and depression worse.
