I have a strange problem and I need help very badly. My problem is that I am able to trigger a high in my brain at will. Not a happy, joyous high, but a euphoric high. I have been able to do this all my life. Almost anything can trigger it...thinking about something, anticipation, imagining something. I could do this all my life since I could remember. I am now 20 years old, and I am severely addicted to this high. My doctor thinks I have bipolar, but she doesn't understand that the "lows" I get are a result of the periodic withdrawal from the high, not the result of a bipolar cycle. Has anyone heard of this problem? Please, the withdrawals are getting very severe(the depression, anxiety, craving for the high), and I am literally desperate for an answer. Please let me know if you've heard of this or have any ideas on it. Thank you.
