The fight response.

Following on from my previous post W.I.P Part II I have looked at how I have been “regulating” my emotions in the past. Regulation isn’t really what I’ve done at all. I have a very over-active Fight or Flight response. So when I added that to my previous map, it looked like this; 

Credit where credit is due VoxVisual put me on this path of, let’s call it, “self-enlightenment”. I will research the science etc behind all this for deeper understanding but for the moment I’m looking at how this affects me. I have teased out my “Fight” response. Feel free to draw conclusions, I am going to do a map for my “Flight” response before I conclude, plenty of patterns emerging though. All the details first before the bigger picture – how Aspie of me lol.

I haven’t gone into depth with sensory input either. This is something I also have to learn about, what triggers me and the impact these play.

  1. The problem to lose people is due to you or to people? For my experience with an asperger person i would like to stay but she we closed me all doors. So she is losing me even if i don’t want to go.

    • I think it is both. I’m not sure of your personal circumstances with your friend, but I know I have cut people off in the past because it was “easier” than fixing the issue. Some issues are very hard to forgive and forget, I have a great memory which remembers all the past slights against me, if a person really wants to make amends they will have to prove it to me through absolute honesty and following through on their word, in time I will forgive, but I never forget. I will put my post up on “flight” when I’ve finished, that might help – she may have shut herself down for reasons that have nothing to do with you and just needs space 😊
