I don't think buspirone would help much, if at all.

More than just symptom relief, you may (and perhaps should) approach this more psychodynamically (as opposed to pharmacodynamically). Try analysing what you're afraid or anxious about. You must first have insight before you can try to act on those insights. A good psychologist (some psychiatrists too, and psychoanalysts) can help you explore these issues if you are not getting anywhere on your own. Once you know more precisely what you're afraid of, you can try exposure therapy -- deliberately, with will-power, you act contrary to your inclinations, and force yourself to confront your fears and anxieties. With continued practice, it will become easier and easier.
