I fully understand how unpleasant and strange this is for you, but fortunately this is a very well recognized condition which responds really well to proper treatment. CBT is certainly one of the elements of successful treatment, and you should persevere with it. But you should also see a psychiatrist for further assessment and a consideration of adding some medications, including some also used to treat Depression, which can help a great deal to reduce the anxiety components of this disorder. Then I notice later in your message you mention seeing a psychiatrist and receiving meds. Persevere !
This is not ( unless there are many other features you haven't mentioned ) Borderline Psersonality Disorder, and a personality disorder doesn't have such a sudden onset - and often, it is other people who suffer from your Personality Disorder more than you do !
Phobic Anxiety Disorder is a clear variety of problem on its own, though also related to both Depression and other anxiety Disorders.
"Breakdown" is a popular term but with no actual specific definition or meaning within psychiatry. I suppose if anything it means finding yourself despairing about the effects of any psych disorder, and feeling pessimistic about recovering ( though recovery is the usual outcome, in fact ! )
The medicines should help bring this under control, and the CBT should help progressively to enable you to regain contol of this and any other future situations.
