I have had a 2 week panic attack!

Two weeks ago I broke my ankle in the worst possible way, all three bones broke and dislocated. The pain is pretty bad but not near as bad as having this 25 pound cast wraped around my leg. I have always had issues with panic, anxiety and depression and never really thought it could get much worse. With the broken ankle my panic, anxiety and depression are horrible. I am not really sure why the panic is so bad. Maybe because I can no longer run away from trouble. Maybe its the claustrophobic feeling I get with this cast on me. What I do know is that I have no control and I am so uncomfortable feeling this way. The panic is so bad that I feel like I am in a fog and my skin is burning.

Anyway, tommorrow I have surgery and the panic is at a peak right now. Is there anything I can do to stop this? They have to put me to sleep, give me a block and try to reconstruct my bones with plates and screws. I am a 40 year old man who is scared to death.
