Health pobia does no: go away quickly but it can be effectively treated. You need to see a mental health professional. Non-drug treatments include cognitive therapy. A book called "Hope and Help for your Nerves" by Claire Weekes is a good resource, as is www.relaxationresponse.org Peace and good health.
