Kol Hakavod for reaching out and not suffering in silence. I was going to offer the same advice as the 2 previous commenters—talk to The Rebbetzins at Oorah about shidduchim, but first, find an orthodox Rabbi who takes an interest in your situation and can help you clarify your status. You didn’t say where you are geographically, but if you are in a place where there are few Jews and few Rabbis, you might need to spend a Shabbos or two in a larger community to make connections. For Shabbos invitations try seeyouonshabbos.com, a hospitality site which matches people looking for Shabbos invitations with people looking to host.
We moved several times with children, and they take it the hardest, especially being the new kid in school where classmates have been together for years.

Haros: You should look up information about panic attacks and see if that is what you are really going through. It usually happens with physiological symptoms, increased heartbeat, difficulty breathing, trembling, hot or cold flashes, etc. sometimes a complete inability to function until the attack passes. Often the treatment is anti-anxiety drugs. I’m guessing most people who suffer from this speak to a therapist of some kind.

Avraham Fried—see the latest DVD Live in Israel, he has reached a pinnacle.
Shouldn’t an important factor be whether the school they go to permits only CY? My child attends a school where only CY dairy is allowed, but it is not enforced and some students bring CS. Since the kids often share snacks, it’s not fair for parents to ignore this rule; then the CY kids get tempted to breach the standards of their home and policy of their school.

Maybe the point to emphasize in any kiruv is how crucial it is to have good Rabbis and friends to support you. Speaking from experience, becoming a BT alone was awful. Today there are a lot of kiruv orgs. to connect with.
Kids who get hit learn to hit, they go to school and hit other kids.
When simcha-related business owners strive to get the baal simcha to buy more and more features, so lavish simchas become the standard, and someone trying to spend within moderate means feels embarrassed because they cannot compete, then yes, I am willing to see them forfeit some measure of their business in order to lower the bar and not cause such pain in the klal.
