Moods and Brain Activity
Reacting to stress has always been difficult for me, since I am not a naturally calm person. I’m sure there are many counterbalancing positives for my brain chemistry, but I wish I didn’t have to go through such changes for what are essentially small things. Being with people usually helps me snap out of the agitated state. I believe I have the opposite of social anxiety, or perhaps it is this: when I am alone my imagination takes over and leads me into agitation; when I am with others I am better able because of the circumstances to focus my energies on the moment.
