Fear of "Lossing Control" brings on Panic Attack

A few months back developed this fear that I was going schizophrenic. This fear, that I was losing touch with reality, going to become catatonic produced a panic attack that landed me in the hospital. There the doctor assured me that I was only obsessing and that if I were to continue to do so that I might actually become "crazy." Anyway, this incident and the compulsive thought checking that I have developed since this time has completely disoriented me. I try to get it out of my mind that I am not going crazy, but this thought lingers and when I don't think about it, I question the reason why and this again brings on the thought and if I become to analytical, like I had done this will throw me into a complete hysteria, panic attack and even worse! I need to put what is going on in some healthy perspective? I have just recently tried to replace the "going crazy" thoughts with " just obsessing thoughts." Any further help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It sounds like OCD and it could be psychotic depression. I was in the hospital about 6 mo. ago for psychotic depression (losing touch w/reality), but I think now it's also OCD, b/c I have these thoughts that won't go away, and it makes me feel crazy. You are not going crazy and I can't believe they said that. You have to remember it's NOT you - just thoughts. I know it's hard - I'm having a difficult time with it myself. What medication did they put you on?
