RESPONDING POSITIVELY TO AMYGDALA HIJACK   Emotions associated with fight or flight response, for instance; anger or fear are activated in the primitive part of our brain called the ‘amygdala’. When the amygdala perceives a threat, it can lead that person to react irrationally and destructively. Adrenaline and cortisol hormones are released. Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars

Amygdala Fight or Flight Response | Fight_or_flight2.  I really believe that you are not aware yet of when I am being a martyr, and when I am trying to influence conversation to be relational.  I feel you are used to having to run the narrative.  If you want to know me, I can't be just listening to you run the show.  Key word above, 'glucose'.

This information graphic shows the body reacts in situations of extreme fear. When I was taking a psychology class, learning about the fight or flight phenomenon was one of the interesting lessons to me. I think it is so cool how your body triggers and deactivates certain processes based on your feelings.   http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/fear2.htm

The fight or flight response is an involuntary, spontaneous reaction to an impending danger. Imagine walking through the woods. You come face to face with a wolf. Your heart starts beating fast, your muscles tense, you are instantly alert. For a split second you are paralysed with fear. Then you make a decision. You decide to either defend yourself or run. This is the fight or flight response. For people with GAD this is everyday life #GAD #anxiety #fightorflight #fear #mental #health
