You really sound as though you are suffering from an Anxiety Disorder, perhaps with some features of Depression, too, which, fortunately, can respond really well to basic treatments. Best of all, if one can find such a counsellor locally, is Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT counselling ) which is practical, sensible, brief, and highly effective. Some medications may help along the way, but concentrating on CBT, which specifically focusses on those fabits of negative thinking, is brilliant in its benefits.
