Disbelief, phones pinging constantly with social media alerts and messages from TV stars.
That's what Northern Ireland's women footballers have been experiencing since creating history on Tuesday night by reaching the finals of a major international tournament for the first time.
'Have we really done this?' was the feeling when the girls in green awoke the next morning, high on the adrenaline of their moment of glory.
They made the whole of Europe sit up and take notice as they beat Ukraine in a two-legged play-off to book their place at the Women's Euro 2022 finals, and now they are going to England next summer.
"It still feels surreal," said defender Julie Nelson, the country's most capped female footballer.
"I don't think any of us could believe it when we were chatting about it at breakfast. It's like an out-of-body experience almost as in 'did that really happen?' and we are pinching ourselves because many years ago it would have been an impossible dream and now it's become a reality.
Covid-19 restrictions meant the stands at Seaview were empty as they won 2-0 on Tuesday night to complete a 4-1 aggregate victory. Next season thousands are expected to make the trip to England to support the team on the big stage.
Demi Vance, who missed the match after suffering a serious knee ligament injury during the qualifying campaign, took on the role of super-fan, roaring her team mates to victory - which came at a cost.
"I've lost my voice," said the Rangers star.
"It's unbelievable. Tuesday night was a bit of a surreal experience for me.
"The feeling at the end of the 90 minutes was exactly the same as all the other girls - we're finally going to a major tournament and we're going to be playing in the Euros.
"I think it will sink in when we play our first match at the finals next year. It has to be the biggest achievement in Northern Ireland football history - men and women - and it's great to be part of that squad.
"I think we all woke up feeling like we've been dreaming. We've all had to pinch ourselves and realise it's real, we're going to the Euros."
Derry Girls actress Tara Lynne O'Neill is a long-time supporter of the team and she was among the many fans who sent their congratulations on social media.
"I spoke to my mum and dad after the game. All my family were watching it and my phone has been inundated with messages since Tuesday night," said Julie.
"I probably haven't caught up on half of them, either through WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or whatever.
"It's been bedlam, there has been so many mentions coming through and I think all the other girls are the same.
"It's amazing to see the whole country behind us and the support has come from across the spectrum, people from different walks of life and not necessarily just football people who are sending messages. It's great to see.
"Tara Lynne O'Neill tweeted me and some of the male players have liked Tweets."
And Demi, who made her way back to Glasgow to continue her rehabilitation with the Euros now her goal, has seen the grip the team's achievement has had on the country.
"Everywhere I look, all over the radio stations, everywhere I look on Twitter, we seem to be the headlines. 'Be right back, going to the Euros' is the headline I've seen," said Demi.
"The support that we have received from everybody across Northern Ireland has been fantastic.
"There have been people tweeting and we've had support from everywhere, which has been great.
"The support from everyone's family and friends is brilliant and I know they couldn't be there, but hopefully next year at the Euros they will all be over there supporting too."
For Ashley Hutton, another of the 100-cap club, she is still trying to take in the reality of what has been achieved after playing on the international stage for 17 years.
"It's unbelievable. It's something that most of us probably never thought that would happen and I don't think it has hit us yet what we have achieved," said the Linfield Ladies defender.
"I think it will be weeks yet before it actually sink in.
"I've had family and friends get in touch and they are already getting their plans in place to come and support us in England next summer,"
"It will be a great occasion to be part of."
