For about 10 years now i've had a fear of flying. I've been all over the world but all of sudden I was afraid to fly. There wasn't any incidents that caused this fear. To this day I don't fly and the few times I was suppose too I would freak out a month before I was suppose to fly and then didn't fly. About 4 months ago my wife had a stillborn baby at 9 months. Since that experience I've been having Panick Attacks. The other day at work my boss asked me to do something that wasn't too hard for me to do but I freaked out and was ready to go home. I didn't feel good so I took the next 3 days off. Now monday I have to go back and I keep thinking I'm going to get fired. I don't care if I get fired but for some reason it's driving me crazy. My doctor prescribed Zoloft. He said we would try it for a few because he thinks I have Post Tramatic Stress Disorder from what happend with the baby. It's effecting my life with my wife, daughter and work. What else can I do to get through this? I used to be a care free guy who just didn't care except for the important things in life. Thank you for any advice.

My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
