okay i was fine well sorta before i played the kinect on 360....i was doing the hurdle race where you have to jump and dodge stuff and no for some reason i feel worse... like depersonalization...idk why??? it was weird.... i am a little calm now but it was really strange anyone feel this way after exercise or heart rate goes up? not including panic attacks and heart rate just regular..
its very common after physical activity and exercise! if you exercise regularly and it happens you need to make sure your getting enough calories and drinking enough, and if it happens and you dont exercise regularly, then you need to start exercising regularly! :D

I swear i would love to shake this into you =)
Anxiety is the thinking process of the symptoms of stress . Weather you place your mind ( arguments , fighting , too much worrying ) or you place your body (exercise) . It will have the same effect . IT WILL STRESS YOUR SYSTEM OUT . Then you will start worrying because you dont see that and that in turn will get your anxiety going yet again . Shake shake =)
In fact it can be a good thing and it will still stress your body out . Sex is one that i can think of . Maybe you enjoy roller coasters , Bet you cant go on one now with your anxiety . Why because your body is stressed and it feels things more
I will post the thing i wrote below to explain what i mean and i am sure you have read this .
Exercise is great but again learn not to stress yourself out . Make it mild exercise
The 1% rule
So you have anxiety . Well that sucks.
There are many reason for high stress , lifestyle , hormones , poor diet . thinking etc.
It not how you got there that should worry you its how you get out the other side that counts
Well you really are not much different from everyone else on the planet. Every body has stress . Anxiety is just a word for high stress .
We all suffer from stress , throughout our whole life we will have stress , some good , some bad and there is not much to do to stop this happening but there is many ways to reduce the effects of it .
Over time stress takes a effect of our body , if we dont do something about this stress then our body learns this .
Each time we have a stressful episode in life and don't take action to repair this , our body sets our stress level a bit higher. But the body will only take this for so long .
One day it will crack and start to show the symptoms of high stress , this is when your body is on 99% stress. It is running at its peak level ,
The peak level of the stress that it can take .
Now as i said above everybody has stress , most of the time you may not even see that your stress is raised , it could be as simply as going into a room full of people ,
sitting in a restaurant , to a little fight with the other half , talking to the opposite sex .seeing a snake etc. You know what i mean we have all been there before had those butterflies from doing something we may have been a bit nervous about .
Now this sort of stuff has happened before and had very little effect on you .It has raised your stress level a bit but then gone back down just as fast .
But now your stress level has changed you are living on 99% stress , so when the little things happen you are pushed over the 100% mark .
What is the 100% mark well that's panic , that's when your body starts to send out major symptoms that it cannot take this stress any more and you need to do something about it . But what is worst when you reach this stage it takes alot of work to change back down
your body starts sending out symptoms , warning that it is under stress , but we cant see this , we cant understand what is going on , we are scared , we think we are dying, by thinking all this we as really just adding more fuel to the fire . Anxiety can be so cruel in this way .
These panic episode will keep happening because you are at the 99% stress level . But you can stop them . Panic can be stopped fast , anxiety stays for a while though.
You stop them by reducing your stress over time the same way it raised overtime . You stop these attack and GAD by seeing them for what they are .
A symptom of a overstressed system , you don't project these symptoms onto other things .
Fears are simply a way of projecting you anxiety on to something and not seeing it as it really is solely as a symptom of a overstressed system
You start by understanding why your body is doing this , why your body is sending out all these nasty symptoms. You learn what is behind it .
When you learn what is behind it , you should also see that this is not some evil monster inside you set to destroy you but it is just like any symptom that the body gets when ill . It is no different than a runny nose with the flu. It is your body's way of showing you that their is something wrong . The way god made you is you chose.
Many things change in the body when under stress , your body workings change because it believes it is in danger . It starts the flight and fight response when it is in danger .
There is always a reason behind why those symptoms are happening . Some are such as crazy thoughts . Your body is looking for the danger that it feels but it cant find it and keeps looking , some crazy thought may flash into your head, it may pick this up as a danger and focus on this .Your body will focus under panic it is built to do this. This is why you can jump out of the way of a runaway bus because your body focus on the danger and reacts. You don't think about it , your automatic part of the brain takes over and dose it for you .
The automatic part of the brain plays major role in anxiety , you were not born with high anxiety , it is something that your brain has learned and you need to unlearn .
Lets take a fear , mine was driving , i would freak just looking at a car. Why ??
Well i could never understand why after all i had spent my life driving a car with not a problem in the world .
Well one day it clicked i wasn't scared of driving , i was scared of the way i felt when i drove .
What had happened is that i felt unsure driving , i felt stressed , my automatic part of my brain saw this and remembered .
So each time i would go near my car my automatic part of my brain would say
WARNING DANGER. Then this part of the brain would start the panic response . It wasn't that i caused it, it was just that
my automatic part of the brain had learnt that i was in danger. Now i knew i wasn't but i panicked , i didn't panic because of the driving ,
i panicked because of the feelings i felt but my automatic part of my brain did not see that all it saw was that i was scared and it thought
it was doing the right thing by prepairing for danger. So now you see its not that you are scared of your fears , it is your scared of the symptoms of anxiety
and you have told your brain this. Your auto brain remembers this and the next time it is in the situation it will automatically reasoned with flight and fright .
It is something that it learns . Just as you have taught it to do many things from walking to riding a bike.
You may fell sick in the stomach . Pins and needles in the hands as the body repairs for the battle with the danger it is looking for.
The reason for these pins and needles is that the body is removing blood from you limbs to reduce bleeding if hurt in the battle .
The battle is the danger it feels but cannot see. The body cannot tell the different between that moving bus and you telling it that there is a bus there .
It learnt to panic but it can be taught to stop panicking just with work . By understanding these symptoms when they start from a bit of stress and raise you learn not to panic with fear against them. Removing the fear from them stops them from growing . Most if not all of the fear comes from the anxiety or panic attacks themselves . Yes you may have fears such as going outside or such but this is not what you are really scared of . What you are really scared of is the feelings of anxiety
As you get better which you will , look into what your body is doing , it is a amazing system that the body has to protect itself from danger.
The problem is now is that you have become so stressed over time and this system is now in place but you cant see it .
It was there , i bet you had weird symptoms for the months if not years before your stress got to 99% but just look past them as ,
maybe a bad day at school or work and they settled with a bit or rest and sleep . May people now look back and say Oh i have had GAD for years
. Have you or was it just the symptoms of your stress rising over time.
So how do you get better you reduce your stress , you answer all though questions you have about whats happening .By learning the answers to these questions you reduce the stress and worry that something nasty is going on .Its not , its just your body doing what it was made to do.
You also reduce your stress by facing some of the things that caused it in the first place .
These maybe anything from facing problems in your past with people that raised you to current problems you may have with loved ones .
I believe a big step in this is forgiveness . You don't have to forget that someone hurt you in the past but you need to forgive and move on.
While you are still holding onto this they are still hurting you .
You work on outside stimulants such as to much alcohol , drugs , smoking , poor diet , poor lifestyle etc
So by doing this you drop your stress down over time form 99% to maybe 40 % so that when you get that little stress form going into a room full of people ,
sitting in a restaurant , to a little fight with the other half , Taking to the opposite sex .seeing a snake etc Then it raises you stress level into maybe 42% .
This is the key , it is were on your stress level this 2% is that effects weather we panic or not .
As you reduce your stress this 99% will lower and less and less things will stress you out over time.
There is no quick fix , there is no happy pill . The only one that can do this is you. Yes you will feel bad at times , infact you will have days were you just want to crawl up in a ball and disappear. But as you work at lowing your stress you will get better .
Just as 100s and 1000s of people have before you have got past anixtey . Remember that no one live 100% stress free.
We have just learned to live at the wrong end of the scale

Exercise essentially burns away the chemicals like cortisol and norepinephrine that cause stress. At the same time, vigorous exercise releases endorphins into the system. Endorphins are morphine-like hormones that are responsible for the feeling of elation, or well being that distance runners get from running. Other chemicals like dopamine and serotonin are also released in the brain during exercise. Together, these give a feeling of safety and security that contributes to off-setting some of the "internal" causes of stress, such as uncertainty, pessimism and negative self-talk.
