Riding the high

Sometimes, when I’m in a bit of a hypo-mania, I just lean into it for a few minutes or a few hours where I know that some stimulus (extra caffeine, or positive music cranked to a high volume) will push me into a particular state of near-bliss. It’s such an enjoyable feeling, sometimes it’s an indulgence.

I don’t do this often anymore with caffeine, I know the long-term ramifications. A particular high achieved through caffeine for a few hours I may end up paying for for several following days with broken up sleep and other problems. And the brief high may even trigger a low period lasting longer. It’s way too much risk. Music is a briefer and less potent high, but also dramatically less risky.
