Would prefer the discussions in text form, instead of video. When we are in a stressful or traumatic situation, a hormone called cortisol gets dumped into our systems, enabling the fight, flight, or freeze response. When you've been trained as a first aider, though a different response occurs. At least it does with me when I'm an emergency situation. I tend to turn into a robot, and follow the instructions in my head from one or another person who has instructed me in what to do in such a situation. Cortisol is still streaming through me, but from the outside, I appear calm and in command of myself.
yea i know u have said this before but I prefer in a video because i can't focus long on text, but feel free to google ur information in text if u like.
I hate this feeling. Absolutely awful.
I don't freeze..as in can't move. I was attacked a few years ago and I reacted without thought ~ I floored my attacker basically. Knocked him straight over, backwards into the bushes. I bite too. No thought..just sink the old teeth in..
But breathing...no. Cold. No breath. Well very fast.. maybe that's flight..
Good for you! Maybe if criminals learn to their sorrows that women aren't such pushovers they will learn to control themselves and not attack us.
It surprised me as much as it did him.
