Too Much of the Fight-or Flight Chemical

Adrenaline is a powerful “fight-or-flight” chemical, and everybody experiences “adrenaline overload” from time to time.  Any situation where we feel threatened, insulted, guilty, etc. can signal the stress system to raise our levels of adrenaline.  Adrenaline overload is one of the most common things that gets us into situations we’ll regret later.

You can think of the brain as having higher, rational “thought” centers—and more primitive centers that run on instinct.  Adrenaline overload blocks access to the higher brain and throws you down into the primitive brain.  It hijacks your thought processes.
