Today I had an unexpected mini panic attack for no apparent reason. I've been anxiety free for quite sometime now, in fact I forget alot of the time that I even have it any more. Today however, I was sitting down about to watch the Mavs game, and I started to get really sensitive to noises and I got the whole panic attack feeling. I quickly got up and got a drink and was able to calm myself before it turned into an actual full panic attack. My question is, is this pretty normal?

I mean seriously, I've been really free of anxiety and BAM it randomly happens. I have been a little sick lately and I don't have any health insurance anymore. I can however, still go to an indian clinic for free with my CDIB card. So I'm not really THAT concerned about it. I have however, recently begun dieting and started making sure I only sleep 8 hours as opposed to 10 hours every night, and I have a workout routine every morning.

Also, to put it nicely, I'm about to have a visit from Aunt Flow lol. Do you think my recent change in my habits and it being that time are probably a factor? I'd assume my body is merely trying to adjust and it's feeling a little anxiety. I've cut out the junk and and the fast food, and I don't eat nearly as much in a day that I used to, and my body feels as if its rest isn't proper. I am however, dieting healthly so no worries about me not eating enough and I am resting 8 hours a night. :)

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Much love and God Bless

Dear Paige,

I feel it is very normal to still feel anxiety and the occasional panicky thoughts and would not over think what happened.

Remember to stay in the moment and let go of yesterday. Don't get stuck in the "what if" zone. Your change in exercise, sleep patterns and diet are all good things and should not be cause for anxiety IMHO.

Take care and gentle hugs to you,

I've had anxiety 2 (now 3) periods of time in my life. And then through supplements, lifestyle/thinking changes and all that (mostly they were caused by physical things going on like my thyroid and overmedication and stuff) and then I remember I had been anxiety free for years and then a mini attack I felt coming on in the car of all things. I got a hold of it, it went away and I didn't get anymore. I thought it was strange and out of the blue.
