Could you and the others who claim to experience 'euphoria' following a cluster attack more completely describe your sensations, in simple language?

Following an attack, I feel relief and a sensation of success at having survived yet another. I also feel complete and total exhaustion...both physical and mental (as I'm one of those who uses his mind to cope with the experience of the cluster).

Yes, I certainly feel 'better' in the pain free state, but hardly anything close to 'euphoria'. I have no desire to go party, or dance or have sex or run around the block shouting out how wonderful I feel.

So, could you describe this 'euphoria', and perhaps also provide a definition of the term for those who may not be familiar with or totally understand it? I for one would not consider you either elitist (as in attempting to form a closed society) or egotistical if you provide a definition a this big word.
