pantophobia/ despondent

Three years ago I went through a trauma that put me in and out of psychosis for 1 1/2 years. I am now out of psychosis but have been left with a severe form of anxiety called pantaphobia which is literally "fear of everything".
I have been in 6 psychiatric hospitals, had over 20 shock treatments. gone through 30 TMS treatments and tried over 30 medications and nothing takes this terror away.
I know of no one else that has this disorder and I was wondering if anyone else has ever heard of it. It has been so tormenting that I have attempted suicide twice now and am desperate to find a support group for this mental disorder. Can anyone out there help me?

" Perhaps you can get a few cd's, like relaxation techniques which may help. You also may want to look into books. I find writing about your experiences helpful, too. And, of course, prayer (if you're "spiritual"). Music is a great influence on my moods, and if you can watch movies are TV shows that are funny laughter is a great healer. Good luck in your recovery - I hope these suggestions along with support from others on this forum helps. I'll keep you in my prayers/thoughts. "
