You must learn to control your thoughts and let go of the worry. Best wishes. I have also started a very mild anti anxiety med (2.5mg Librax, usually issues for stomach problems) and finally saw a therapist who will help me "master my mind". I nearly had another episode at the thought of seeing a therapist and even when I was about to go to my first session, but the hit to your pride is such a small price to pay for the benefits of guidance from someone who is so familiar with this stuff.
TALK about your experience to a trusted friend/family member, or write it down, both in GREAT DETAIL, the more you think about it the less sensitive you get to it, and eventually it won't bother you at all. Do this at first in a comfortable environment. It can be hard at first but hang in there! Just like doing curls with your arm, its hard at first but your bicep gets stronger and eventually its no problem to curl a large amount of weight.
Oh yes PRAY for healing, if you are religious. I am typing this from the very chair and desk where it first happened.
