"After a while the stress and panic feel normal, so when you're not riding the edge, you feel twitchy because you know that the lull doesn't mean things are better, it means you're not aware yet of what's going wrong. And the system or the partner always, always obliges with a new crisis."

Y'know, I've never quite managed to convince myself that the lull is an ok thing to enjoy and not the silent approach of impending doom. ;-/

It's addictive in the same way tower defence games are addictive.

"Maybe this other strategy I haven't tried yet will be effective."

It's the intermittent success that really did it for me, "oh this one time it worked so it will work again...right?".
