Default I can sense it.

I can sense that I am going to have a panic attack. Not at this current moment, but I can tell I am going to end up having one in the near future. My tick has started to act up again, and that's a pretty damn good sign that I am extremely stressed out. This is not a good thing. *sighs* I'm not sure if there's any way to stop it, or prevent it for that matter. It's inevitable - I'm going to have a panic attack.

Why am I so calm about this? That's the part that kind of scares me.

Maybe you're so calm because you do expect it. There is a certain comfort in predictability. I think though there is also a danger there, in that you may think that the panic attacks are inevitable and there's nothing you can do to stop them. I know that is the way I feel sometimes. Right now I'm trying a new round of medication so I can't predict my reactions lately and it's pretty scary. I'm not saying you're necessarily in the same boat but it might help to explain why you feel the way you do. I think it's really good though that you recognize you're own personal patterns though. Is there anything you can do that you know will prevent another attack? I know this may sound corny but a bubble bath, exercise, meditation, lavender, being with friends, etc? Hope this helps.

Sometimes I feel calm before I have a panic attack, even though I can sort of tell that it is coming on.

Maybe it is sort of like people who get migraines. Before the headache you get a weird 'aura' feeling around your head.

*nods* That makes a lot of sense. Luckily for me I got to stay the night with my boyfriend before it actually hit...

Yes I think you are lucky you have a very supporting bf. Anxiety attacks are the pits.

I do feel really lucky; I love my boyfriend so much. He's always been really supportive of me, no matter what.
