Panic Attacks & Depression, Please help

I am thirty years old & i think i have been suffering from panic attacks for about 10 years. I only got them when I had been drinking heavily the night before(like 12 drinks). I would simply fix the problem by having another drink & it went away.
Or I just wouldn't drink & everything was fine. But I still drank frequently, just a couple .I have never really been depressed before either. I have a great life, a dream job, wonderful fiance, happy home, & a close loving family. I was happy.
About 5 months ago I went on a vacation and drank heavily for about 7 days. I started to feel really depressed & got alot of panic attacks. Then I came home & got caught in a major flood & witnessed people drowing, & swept my car away.
I havent felt right since. I have anxiety / panic attacks all the time & I'm majorly depressed. Life seems so surreal. My thinking is screwy, I've developed wierd phobias like, convinced im going to stop breathing, lose feeling in my arms, or die at any moment. I feel like i dont know who I am, my own voice seems wierd to me, and freaked out by my own reflection. I hate going to work & going to social events.
I went to a therapist and he said I was afraid to get married , thats why i feel this way, but i dont think so,
she's the only reason i make it through the day. I stopped drinking about a month ago & tried Vitamin B complex.
I still feel terrible all the time. Im afraid to take meds because everyone i have talked to said it made them feel worse.I feel scared all the time, like something really bad is gonna happen.
Can anyone relate, or have any suggestions?
