May i ask why you "hate to admit" that it might be panic/anxiety? i was so relieved when i was diagnosed- the sooner the diagnosis, the sooner effective treatment can begin.
Is this about the social stigma attached to such an illness? because the people in your life that really matter will accept this and help you in finding a way to live your life as fully as possible. I know it is daunting, but managing this condition can be done, as many of us here do. it wont be easy, but acceptance leads to treatment which leads to relief.
