It’s been happening to me off and on for a while now. Every once in awhile I get this sensation of sheer pleasure come over me and I almost go weak. It’s primarily in my head but I feel it in my arms and hands too as if I wouldn’t be able to lift them. My eyes are closed and it feels sort of like being warmed in the sun on a cool day, so good, and I go weak. I think if it were to happen to me when I was standing i would go weak in the knees too. But it’s not a scary or bad feeling in any way. It’s bliss. It’s pure bliss. Like a cat laying in a chink of sun. It’s starting to get more frequent now. I wonder what it is.
Maybe it’s from your antidepressant?
I have this but mine seems like falling asleep instantly for a few seconds. I feel paralyzed for a few seconds. For some reason mine only happens when I am with visitors. Maybe I am just bored of them and my brain shuts off.
It could be I’m on a max dose of Cymbalta
Yes it does seem like I’m a little drowsy at that time
Well you’re pretty lucky. You must be doing something good for your chemistry.
Antidepressants can make you feel high or manic.
That is kind of how I feel when I am about to faint…likely it is not the same thing we are having
Several years ago, before the onset of schizophrenia, I used to meditate twice a day or more using the TM (Transcendental Meditation) method. Sometimes I achieved the third state of consciousness that exists between being asleep and being awake and achieved it at a very high level. Other times not so high. When I did achieve that high level I was filled by by a feeling that felt orgasmic (just the feeling all over) at times and was in pure bliss. That is the feeling of consciousness. I think that might be what you are feeling @leaf… Pure consciousness, a state of being without sensory inputs or thoughts.
Why question or analyze? If that happened to me I’d just say “Enjoy.”
"It feels sort of like being warmed in the sun on a cool day, so good, and I go weak…It’s bliss. It’s pure bliss!"
(Ahem) My posts do tend to have that effect on women.
I think it’s your antidepressant. They can do that
I wish I felt that way…all I am is dry and blunt
