Amygdala and excitement

Too much happened during the last couple of days for someone who just left psychiatric hospital. But then, I don’t want to deny myself experiences, especially positive.

Did I ever tell on the blog that I never learned how to deal with excitement? I believe it’s controlled by amygdala, the same like fear and danger. The primitive part of my brain doesn’t seem to distinguish between those even though I know what I feel.

If I have psychosis now people will say it was all in my head; this idea that I can understand dementia patients. I will have nothing left, you know?
