Panic attacks, anxiety, and debt

I have around $29K in credit card debt - I'll pay off my car loan in November, which will help. But occassionally (such as this morning) I obsess about the money I owe and go into a panic. I know it will take several years to get rid of it, but in the meantime I worry. I also can't seem to control my charging - I have 3 active cards for emergencies, but end up buying this or that over the web using them. After doing so, I get even more anxious and wonder why I bought anything in the first place.
I have a plan for digging myself out, and after the car loan is paid off, the balances will rapidly decline. With the amount of debt I have, is bankruptcy a possibility? (just the *sound* of that word makes me panic!). I don't think it is, as long as I stick to my plan.
What do you do to relieve your anxiety? I have a panic disorder and take medication for it; I find myself using more and more of it when I obsess about this debt. Anyway, thanks for reading!
