How do I tell my doctor about my anxiety?

I have finally decided to talk to my doctor about my anxiety. I've had social anxiety for most of my life and have NEVER had the courage to talk to a medical professional about it. My anxiety has been bothering me really bad as of late and effecting my life more and more. I finally realize that I can no longer do this on my own. I had a panic attack yesterday for the first time in over three or four years. Now I am going to call and make a doctors appointment to talk to them about this but I am paralyzed with fear. I have no idea what to say or how to even start the conversation. I would appreciate any help. Thank you! :)

I wrote everything I was feeling and experiencing down in a notebook and then went I went to the Dr. I just read the paper. I did this incase I started to have a panic attack and couldn't talk. That way I could just hand the Dr. the paper and he could read it. Hope that helps
