I don't understand, you used to be a native speaker, yet you were born in a non-English speaking country? Could you give us more details?
I think the only way to regain your confidence is simple: speaking. Once you start, more than half the road is done!
I think you should always read english book not in mind but using your voice for sure you will practice your english and regain the confidence,in Denmark where i am call center agent at http://goexcellent.dk/ i mostly read english book ,watch english movies and it is my key to make my english fluent.
