Readiness and response in AsPD

Yo, we're about to do some $#%^ that'll give the adrenaline response a spike. You in?

Does your heart pump harder? Do you stumble over should/oughts? Do get you excited? Do you ride straight through the feeling? Are you already committed before you can rationalise out of doing something stupid?

I used to love doing things like that when I was younger. I would never even think twice about if or should I do it. The higher the risk the better to be honest. I'm defo already committed before I've even thought about the consiquenses. In fact the consequences don't even occur to me until I'm in a police cell or hospital and even then it's still all part of the ride.

It is very exciting...I feel like a king.

Is it always a good feeling?

I get excited. but I don't feel it like you do.

I get deeper breathing and a more centred feeling. Switch gears kind of. Super focussed. You know sometimes where the gap between you and everything else disappears and you're just there. That's the kinda headspace I get in when it's serious-- If it's just messing around I don't get anywhere near that feeling.

When euphemisms pass and smoke clears, I think it'll make more sense. You're timeless and there's nothing else

It may be the case that I have a form of ADD that is prone to hyperfocus. It's only something I've read up on casually so do not know much. Focus isn't something I can choose with any meaningful impact but when I'm zoned in I'm not sure much can topple my intensity towards the object of focus. It's all-consuming

I hyper focus but it's only when I've got a goal to aim for. It's usually on a really mundane task though. Nothing that even nudges my heart rate or gets any adrenaline flowing.

I don’t know that anyone has ever said that to me.

Silliness and absurdity have more of a pull on my character than a simple adrenaline hit. ‘Let’s climb the art building’ at 2am or ‘let’s go to Riga, like, right now’ more than ‘cocaine: do you want some?’. It’s more a kind of maniacal naughtiness mixed with sardonic whimsy rather than anything more sinister.

Appealing to my sense of humour is usually a pretty good way to get me involved.

On my own I tend to favour activities which combine adrenaline, skill and focus. I find there is a kind of satisfying tranquility to be found in them.
