I'm in a somewhat similar situation, I have a history of anxiety and I also have ME/CFS which means I can't exercise or do much. I'm sorry you're having these problems, it's really hard.

I've found 2 books on meditation and mindfulness helpful:

-Living Well with Pain and Illness: the Mindful Way to Free Yourself from Suffering by Vidyamala Burch (website of her organization: http://breathworks-mindfulness.org.uk)
-How to be Sick: a Buddhist Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers by Toni Bernhard (her website: http://www.howtobesick.com)

I've only just read the latter, but it has specific tips and exercises on dealing with symptoms, not being able to do what you want, blaming yourself for your illness and so on. It'd take me a while, but I could write a summary of some of the tips if you'd like?
