That sounds like a pattern I am familiar with, and that's why I started out trying to understand how panic disorder and depression and/or bipolar fit together. When I am most unstable, I can have bad temper problems where I feel a little out of control with co-existing personal conflicts with others (not surprising, given the temper problems) and then later that night after I have cooled down, go past cool and all the way into a bone-chilling panic attack that is very intense. I guess I would characterize them as not situational in that they come over me when my day is over and I am relaxing and there is nothing to make me anxious at that moment... in fact, I am finally at liberty to go to bed (I have three small kids so they wear me out during the day).

Generally, though, there are no predictors for these panic attacks except that lately I have been able to loosely correlate them with stressful emotional events earlier in the day, but most often anger problems rather than fear problems as you would expect. They say that anger and fear are really two variations on the same emotion, though. And I don't know whether the stress earlier in the day is causative of the panic attacks or simply symptomatic of the same emotional climate that predisposes me to panic attacks or whether they are both just a sign that I am falling apart, or what.... Anyone have any thoughts on this? Any personal experience?
