Remain Calm: Panic attacks involve sudden feelings of terror that strike without warning. These episodes can occur at any time, even during sleep. People experiencing a panic attack may believe they are having a heart attack or they are dying or going crazy. You should see your doctor for an exam and possibly a prescription. http://www.webmd.com/anxiety-panic/guide/panic-attack-symptoms

Tight on $ and time?: You may say you can't afford all that serious psychotherapy would demand, but I'll ask: Can you afford not to do it? A wise person once pulled that on me during Graduate School - they were right! It's worth it and you sound like an excellent candidate. Learn how to manage stress, anxiety - if you need a Rx, they'll refer and it will work better in combo.
