This may sound crazy, but i wanted to get some opinions on the biggest factor in my attacks. When I have a panic attack, my hands and feet get ice cold and sweat, my body feels warm, my heart races, I feel a burning right between my chestbone and belly button, my throat feels weird, and I get scared to swallow because i'm convinced that it'll make me sick. Does this ever happen to anyone else? and if so, how do you cope with it and get it into your head that you won't get sick. Earlier tonight, I had a job interview. I haven't been eating well at all because i'm scared of freaking out and getting sick. My biggest fear in this world is feeling or getting sick. Anyway, I tried to keep my nerves calm all day. I ate food, drank a cup of coffee, and chilled. An hour before my interview, I started panicking about being around other people and all throughout my interview I felt sick and like I had something in my throat. This was 2 hours ago,and I'm just now starting to calm down. The problem is that now, my stomach is growling but i'm afraid of feeling sick again and I know that thinking this way will send me back into another attack. How can I fix this? Please give me some advice.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
