The state of "slow panic" (?)

Panic is defined as "a sudden sensation of fear..." characterized by anxiety so strong that it hinders logic and oftentimes action. If so, I feel exactly that except for the "sudden" part. The anxiety eats me up painfully slow.

Have you experienced feeling like there's so much to do (that you don't know where to start, in fact), so little time to do everything, and yet, you can't bring yourself to get started?

I've been working on my essay for weeks. I had a good head start, but somewhere in the middle I felt stuck. And soon, the semester is going to start. There will be even less time for me to focus on my applications. Oh my God. I think I'm having another attack!
