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.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
