Does anyone else feel euphoria?

😗 🎶. …Everything that kills me? Makes me feel alive… 🎶 😎

AKA, sho sho.

1. Adrenaline junkie, thrill seeking, passion intense, hedonistic, life threatening, sexy as hell, better faster stronger… total euphoria.

Part personality, part PTSD extremism.

2. Ditto? Any time I’m ACTUALLY suicidal. Not suicidal ideation, not in pain, not death-wishy, but have full on decided. Better than ecstasy “clear” head + euphoria for days/weeks. A vitamin H shot will ACTUALLY clear my head, and kick the suicidal everyhing to the curb. Kind of like diving into perfectly cold water. Refresh. Oh. Shite. We went there, again. Okay! Adjust course.
 
Yes.

I have DID, and one of my parts can get a little bit out of control with the party vibe. If they want to front, I need to stay grounded to make sure that irresponsible decisions aren’t made.

I also have a complicated situation going on with my mood. Periods of euphoria are often a sign that I’m about to crash real hard, so I have to pull out self care like a mofo and try and ease things back to normal.
 
We remember the first time we did the grounding exercises in Coping with Trauma Related Dissociation, and a profound shift happening. That was a mild euphoria. Nowadays, our female parts often feel body euphoria. For so long, being in touch with our body's sensation was so forbidden. We find it funny that the female parts feel the euphoria when they don't have the matching physical body. The male parts sometimes feel a gently euphoria when we are out in the woods and at peace.

Humorously my therapist called which took me back to reality quickly. Not sure whether to be relieved or annoyed.

Yeh I get this,
how's your memory? I had this the strongest when I went through PTSD amnesia.
Lean into it, try to enjoy yourself as much as you can.
I think it's your bodies way of healing.
Not sure if it's memory but the trauma is very far from me, like I can't connect with it at all.

Yeh I ended up this way, its like you somehow can detach yourself from your memory. It's kinda like they are not your memories so you don't have any feelings about them. I feel like this is another brain survival trick.
 
I don't think I've ever felt this in my life. I assume mental changes from drugs and alcohol don't count. Most the time I'm a big fat Nothing Burger. I laugh sometimes! I've been more content interspersed with pretty major OCD symptoms. Almost like the more content I am the more I obsess about how wrong everything can go. But euphoria? Pretty much never. Not while sober. And even drug induced pleasure is low-key. I'm just like eyy, this feels legit. Shrug.
 
yup, i get that euphoria and i have learned to watch myself closely when i am feeling euphoric. that is when i am most likely to take a joyful leap through the gates of hell. i have yet to experience a human-made substance which alters my mind more completely --or idiotically-- than this euphoria. i let myself enjoy the experience, but i take care to save important/dramatic decisions for a more sober day.
