I have had anxiety for 5 years now, it has gone away at times and now it is worse than ever. I lost my job and have not worked in 5 months so I sit at home. The other day I went to drive to the store which is in a town 10 miles from me. I had a major attack while driving there. I tried again twice to drive out of this town and can not make it. I don't know what to do. I know that I need to get out to get over this but I am lost on how to take that first step. I don't have the money or insurance for counseling and am sick of trying meds that give me side effects. Something about driving is really getting to me. I think it is because I get so dizzy when I panic, I am afraid of passing out while driving. Is that even possible ?
These attacks are ruining my whole life, I can't leave home, I can't work, I can't even go to the store. Even watching people do certain things on TV makes me dizzy and panicky. Like when people fly, or go on road trips or just sometimes for no reason at all. HELP
