    If I think I have to make a decision and I do not have enough time to consider things..then I'll definitely go into panic mode.

    If a situation is changing...and I have some control as to how I want that situation to change...but I have no idea how I would like that situation to change...and by not changing that situation I am in effect changing that situation...I'll panic. Hard.

    I only ever panic about menial, stupid stuff. And I always catch myself offguard doing it.

    I think it's that bit of Fe surfacing occasionally.

    It's like the whole body goes like. "NO NO NO NO NO NO NO... Wait what?... Rebooting... Loading memory 1-100%... Starting operating system... Log in user. There, I'm alright now.".

    (In clearer words. It's the shock that goes through my body like an electrical surge, followed by a few seconds of dazzling confusement, ending by shaking it off as if nothing had ever happened.)

    I don't panic. At least I haven't yet panicked from an experience. It may happen at somepoint. I can't say.
    I guess I'm good at dissociating at the right moment.

    It was totally clear. Is this detectable by other people or does it just make you pause for those seconds? I think I have experienced similar feeling but didn't define it as panic. Hmm.

    This makes sense but how does the panic manifest? What happens?

I have had the feeling of panic in my life but it has been in the context of losing a loved one or a non-life threatening scenario. I was pondering a memory and thought I would ask the people here what your experience with panic has been. All types are very welcome to comment.
    Actually, I don't normally panic in emergencies. There was one car accident where my car went on it's left two wheels on the highway and I flew back and forth at 75 mph and landed in a ditch. (After a little piece of tire or rubber or something came out of the back of the pickup in front of me and caught my wheel.) That was the first out of body experience I've ever had, though I didn't identify it as a panic attack because I obviously had other things on my mind. Shortly thereafter I went into a fairly stressful time in my life, and I woke up in the middle of the night feeling frozen and numb, (as if my blood stopped flowing). Dissociated from my body and blacked out. Lots of chest and abdominal pain and it felt as if my throat was closed off. So that was my first identified panic attack, and ever since then, my brain can still access the panic mode. Usually it's when I'm just watching TV or sleeping though. In more acute situations, i'm actually quite calm. It's weird.

    I've gotten very, very panicky over some academic-related things a few times. Once when I was an undergrad I slept through an alarm the morning of a final exam. I woke up, realized I was an hour late, and was nearly hyperventilating. Thought that the professor would never let me make it up. I held it together long enough to try to fix it. I went to the lecture hall where the test was being administered, to see if I could still take it. The TA at the door just handed me an exam like it was no big deal that I was walking in half-way through. Fortunately it was some lame Art History course and it only took me 45 minutes to finish the exam anyway, so I was fine.

    I got back to my apartment and it was like all that panicking that I had suppressed just hit me at once. Like, even though I knew everything was fine, I couldn't shake that feeling like I was having a heart attack and couldn't breathe.
