It sounds like you focused on the bleach as being dangerous, and the connection made you panic. By experimenting with it again, I think you only reinforced the connection (or fear) that it's dangerous, thus producing anxiety.
When my anxiety was really bad, I often fixated on something I "did" and would end up having a crazy panic attack. So I'll confirm what Chris O stated--it's highly unlikely you did any damage (I think it takes an awful lot to cause brain damage).
