Going there...(Reaching a MDDers Euphoria)

Do you find that when you have not daydreamed as much, or as in depth as usual, that when you finally daydream you most likely binge. I mean daydreaming for hours or days. If so, have you noticed that once you get back on track with your daydreaming after being deprived of it cause of circumstances in reality that...once you come out of the deep, or long daydream you feel high? Not just any high, but a high as if on prescription or illegal drugs...to the point where you can feel every muscle in your body is relaxed? Your whole body physically just feels so good. It is almost hard to describe. Being high is the only way I can describe it. Personally when I go deep on a  binge, after I come out of it I breathe a deep sigh of relief and pleasure. I really do feel high as if I have taken drugs. I guess it has something to do with natural endorphins/dopamine being released. The brain is probably releasing a good amount of feel good chemicals. Anyway I guess that could be it? I am not a drug user legal nor illegal. But I have experienced what high feels like from medicine given due to excruciating pain or operations. So usually they prescribe legal narcotics for really unbearable pain which is what I had...in turn is why I know what high feels like. I hope I have not offended anyone with this post. So what do I liken this feeling (high, euphoria) to as far as music/lyrics go....

I always get this feeling when I Md. Maybe that's why it's hard to get rid of.

 @James johannes sanford Thanks it is nice to know that there is someones else out there, that has felt the same thing. You might be right about a part of our brains being reprogrammed. I am happy to have opened-up a discussion that might help you! I will if I find anything new, but this post was done just on my own feelings,and the effects that I actually feel. I have not seen any research to back up my hunch. It would be nice if this part of MDD could possibly be considered in research. If I find anything new I will let you know. Your welcome.

I believe you are on to something, I have also came across this feeling multiple times, and I started wondering that maybe we somehow trained our brains to recognize daydreaming as a reward, that all those years of daydreaming has reprogrammed a small section of the the brain, and now that I think about it, it stated around the same time I became active in my studies and had to cut down of my odd daydream habbit, thank you for shining light on a question that has puzzled me so often, and if its not to much can you sent me a message if you find anything else new, I liked to hear more of your thoughts. Thanks

I find it interesting that you guys feel euphoric after daydreaming a little bit. I admit sometimes I feel euphoric after a short time of daydreaming, but on the other hand I wonder if it has more to do with the depth of daydreaming than the actual length? I know the deeper I go into daydreaming the more likely I am to feel euphoric. To be honest it is always hard for me to know exactly how long I have been daydreaming if I'm in deep.

@The1andonlyAbber I'm a lot like you about the panic thing. If its a small satisfying daydream, I feel elated and happy. But after the long ones, I feel drained and so disappointed in myself and feel like I could've been out doing something and experiencing  real life excitement instead of in my head.

While daydreaming, even if it's not about something very pleasant, I feel high. If I've only daydreamed a little bit I feel euphoric afterwards. But if I went on a huge daydreaming binge the high ends as soon as I stop. Then I feel quite bad. My head feels foggy, my muscles feel weak, and I start to panic about missing out on the real world.

@Hauwert I completely agree. Music is one of my triggers and it is nice to daydream to music. Still I find that I can do it just as good sometimes without music, guess it just depends. Mostly almost all the time I daydream to music!

For me MDD is definitely a blessing! I am grateful and glad to be able to escape reality whenever I want. From some of the comments I have seen hear...I think some daydreamers simply can not see any positive/good in their MDD...sad, but everyone has their own feelings on the matter.
