Is this what it feels like to be happy?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've taken six seven eight, maybe eight tramadol. I'm so high. I don't feel any pain and I don't care about anything anymore, I just wondered is this what happiness feels like?

    Nick, if you think happiness is about nothingness then so be it, but I believe happiness is when you find your inner ability to feel a balance between pain and no pain. If your pain is medical, then you have to give it time to heal. If your pain is pshychological then you also have to give it time to heal. Drugs are good for taking the edge of things in the short-run of events but all they do is dulling what is stirring beneath. However - they give a short and welcomed respite that doesn't go amiss. Use that respite to recompose yourself and give yourself time to find other ways of coping. It is all within you...

    Dear Nick - There is nothing stupid about expressing yourself. Just remember that tomorrow could be a better day.. and, if not tomorrow, so the day after...

    Hi nick34171

    First of all please don't take that much tramadol, unless of course it's been prescribed to you by your doctor, which is highly unlikely. This meds are not meant to make you happy.

    I believe that all people at some point in their lives had experience genuine happiness that they can all remember. So think back for a while and reminisce a happy moment, then reflect on that moment. How did you feel? I'm pretty sure it's much different from taking 8 tramadol.

    Now, I know that pain is troublesome and it provides this overwhelming sense of sadness, however, we are free people. Pain should never be able to restrict that. You may be in pain but that doesn't take your ability and your right to be happy away from you. 

    After reflecting on the things that made you happy before, think now on how you may feel that way again. It may not be the same act as before but happiness is an emotion and we can feel it through many ways. I hope this was able to provide some help. Keep smiling, somebody love you.

    No, I think happiness is when you feel satisfied in a sober state of mind. After a good workout, after helping family or a friend, or accomplishing a goal.
