    I experience some post fight lightheadedness and aphasia as a result of my body using dopamine and seratonin to regulate the elevated levels of norepinephrine in the brain and adrenaline in my bloodstream. Your individual reaction will vary depending on your individual rate of seratonin reuptake and resistance to norepinephrine.

    Excess dopamine will cause you to feal high and ecstatic, where excessive seratonin will make you moody and/or manic.

    This only happens for an actual match though, regular training doesn't stimulate enough norepinephrine to trigger the compensation mechanism.

    Train more.

    Funny this should come up. I got my ass beat this past weekend and the weekend before that by bigger, better-skilled opponents. Most of the process involved me hanging on for dear life and managing to stretch out my survival moment by moment. Afterwards, I felt upset -- sad, angry, frustrated -- all at the same time. I found this a little confusing, since I mostly enjoyed the actual fighting bit. It got me thinking . . .

    I often forget that I'm not a natural fighter, and a lot of what I do actually scares the **** out of me (or used to). These experiences have served as a reminder of just how much my comfort zone has grown. In some respects, it's great to be brought down to earth periodically.

    After a night in fight club, everything else in your life has the volume turned down.

    I haven't trained in 2.5 weeks due to a fucked up shoulder (My neck into my traps down into my deltoid and even a bit into my triceps are pulled and inflamed) and my completely sporadic training in BJJ has really cost me my enthusiasm. I feel like crap, and sitting home after work watching fight videos and such doesn't help at all. I find myself walking by my heavy bag and like the jackass I am I end up taking a few swings at it, and then sit on the couch in pain paying for it.

    I'd say 3 more days of heat and ice and I'll be back in tip top shape. Then I'll have a few more weaks trying to rehabilitate the strength in that arm that I was already trying to work on before I reinjured it.....god dammit I'm a fuckup, and typing this post has made me even more depressed....where's the booze?

    Have you got seratonin and dopamine mixed up?

    Or have I?
