Kelly Richardson: Choosing a college brings on self-induced stress

Dear Kelly: I’ve never had panic attacks before, but I get them all the time now. I’m finishing up doing all my college apps and whenever I think about it or about not getting in somewhere or not going to a good college, I have what I think is a panic attack. My heart races, my body gets all sweaty and I feel like I could pass out or just fall down because I feel lightheaded. I’m having problems sleeping at night.
