New Panic Attacks

I recently just started having panic attacks, and these are multiple per day. All through college I had high stress and anxiety, but had never had a full blown panic attack. Now I'm working in an actual job where I'm trying to move up to a different role & there's a lot of things going on at once. Used to the job has stress but I could find ways of coping, but recently I haven't been able to find coping things that prevent the attacked. I know find myself panicking about everything and it's even waking me up at night and impacting my work. I don't know what to do or if I should see someone. Any suggestions or foods for thought?

Something New

Anxiety has always felt like something that has been apart of me for the last 23+ years. It's almost like I've had it my whole life. My mom is a natural worrier, so growing up I have always worried about everything/everyone too. In college I suffered from anxiety & possibly a slight case of depression. Funny thing is, I got through college in my own way of distractions/school work/extracurriculars/being around people constantly. Out of all that stress & struggle in college, I never ONCE experienced a full-blown panic attack. Now that I am in the working world, moved back to my hometown (my own place, not my parents), it feels like my anxiety has just exploded through the roof within the last month. I experienced my first multiple panic attacks in one night last week & at least 1-2 daily since. There were a couple deaths in the family that happened, but I made it through those with the grief that every family would feel. This time of the year is always hard, and maybe that has something to do with why things have gotten so out of hand now. My grandfather, whom I was close with, passed away 9 years ago this past week, & my uncle who was living in my current home before me passed 3 years ago coming up this July. My job feels like a wreck; I don't feel like I'm performing well & excelling at what I need to, even though people around me say I'm doing good. If I was doing so well, why am I not the one being moved on to the next step in my career? It's frustrating and a debby-downer. There are some days that go great; I love my job, I'm interacting with my coworkers & manager, I'm feeling great talking with clients & the day is going by smoothly (aside from the occassional grumpy client, but that's a given). There are other days where I'm just scared of what the day is going to be like, scared that I'm going to screw up somehow, scared I'm going to fall flat on my flace & fail, and sometimes even scared to interact with the people around me because I'm so ready to be out of that place. We only work 4 days of the week because we have longer shifts, yet I still find myself stressed out on the other 3 days off. I struggle with how to cope, struggle with how to put on that positive attitude anymore. I need help with being happy again & love what I do. Any suggestions?

 

*It would probably be worth mentioning my job is being stockbroker/customer service representative, so it's naturally a high-stress job to begin with.
