About the Distressed Brain

What Is a Distressed Brain?

If you fall into the Distressed Brain subtype, you are likely experiencing agitation along with a lack of focus. This means that at times you may have too much norepinephrine and dopamine in certain brain areas. Too much dopamine can result in a very overactive mind, and too much noerepinephrine can lead to arousal, overfocus, or hypervigilance. This agitated state can also mean you have a deficit of calming neurotransmitters like GABA and serotonin, though in some cases, too much serotonin can also contribute to aggression and impulsive behaviors. Finding just the right balance of supports for each person is important.

What the Distressed Brain Feels Like

If you have aDistressed Brain, you may struggle with anger management, aggression, and irritability in addition to more common focus-related symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Once irritated, you may find it hard to settle down. You may also experience an exaggerated emotional response to relatively minor triggers.
