My 21 month old is way too attached to me, what can I do?

I am a stay at home mom of 2 beautiful girls and my 21 month old is so attached to me that she freaks out when I leave her sight. She has been like this her whole life so its not a phase. I've tried taking her to a drop off daycare just to get some time alone with daddy but they call me 10 minutes after I leave saying I have to pick her up because she won't stop crying. The only way I can leave her with daddy is if she's not paying attention when I go. She does ok with Grandma as long as she's sleeping when I leave or distracted. She constantly wants to me to hold her and if I don't she throws herself on the ground in a crying fit. She's such a little sweet heart and I love all the love she has to give but I cannot have any time to myself or with my hubby alone. I'm thinking of joining a gym so they can have an hour or so in a daycare environment with other kids but how can I leave her in there when she acts like that while I'm gone? Any advice?
