Fight or Flight?

Fight or Flight?

Fight or flight is your body’s primal instinctive response to danger. It was first studied in 1927 by physiologist Walter Cannon. The body produces adrenal medulla; due to the acute hyper-arousal to the perceived threat.
It is said: that this is recognized as the first stage of ‘general adaptation syndrome.’ Which raises the question: Could this be just the beginning of the subject embarking on a long journey, with the final destination being that of Stockholm Syndrome?
I dare to say yes…..That in the right case…….It could very well be so….
