Is it normal to get this freaked out?

In situations where I am stressed, both minorly and majorly, I sometimes get totally overwhelmed by the things I hear and see. It makes my heart race and I become unable to speak or think. Is this normal, or could it be indicative of a psychiatric disorder? I know, you are not my doctor. And I plan to see a therapist once I can afford one, but that won't be for a few months.

Stuck with a Know-It-All/Pontificator

If I am trapped in a meeting or group with a co-worker who likes to hear himself talk (I mean really pontificate)...how do I go zen on it all? How do I adjust my own frustration? He sometimes has an entourage/fan club which isn't my business but I get really frustrated when stuck with him. He also tends to show up in the same small group parties I have attended. Deep breathing doesn't seem to be helping. I'm thinking about a flask of whiskey.

Help me to help me

Several months ago I had a bad anxiety attack. Since then, I have had an extremely heightened sense of self-awareness and have even become a bit agoraphobic (I understand this to be common after an attack). Common situations/activities that once felt natural, effortless even enjoyable (driving, shopping, taking kids to the park) can now induce panic because I over analyze everything. How can I return to my "normal" level of self-awareness and learn to go with the flow? Meds? Mind hacks? Cognitive therapy?
