In brief: BPD

Sounds like panphobia which is intense anxiety due to imagined fear. Antidepressents used for anxiety can be worth a try, along with psychotherapy using cognitive work.

In brief: Consider with ur doc

ssri's: celexa, lexarro,(fluoxetine (Prozac), zoloft etc) are anxiety tops treatment for anxiety.
Benzos (ativan) have much side effect tendencies with anxiety and withdrawal precisely because they are too short acting and the peaks and valleys in blood levels make side effects easy to happen. This can lead to dependence/addiction. Effexor (venlafaxine) is snri, increases norepineprine, can fuel anxiety.
