Tres, I had my initial problem with panic disorder with panic attacks, some five years ago. It became so severe that I was out of work for a number of months. Once I started seeing a psychiatrist and therapist, I was told by both how important it was to get back to work as soon as possible. There is no doubt that the human mind does better when it has something to focus on, and being back at work helped me tremendously. Not only does work keep the mind occupied/distracted, but most jobs have the added plus of affording us socialization. Being around other people takes our focus off of us, and puts it on them.
So, it might be a good idea for you to consider finding a job that both takes up your time, as well as allowing you to come into contact with people. It sounds like your profession of being a photographer, is currently doing neither of these for you.
Again, welcome to Anxiety Zone, Tres. The very best to you!... Chuck
