My first trip was a bad one. The idea was sprung on me at the last minute. I ate 1/8oz of caps at approximately 7:30 p.m. Throughout the entire experience, all I could think about was that I had to be at work around 8 a.m. and this impacted my experience greatly. I chewed them up and chased them with a cherry Pepsi and about an hour later, I had a wonderful body buzz. Then I started to have mild body sweats and hallucinations, while I was playing a video game. At this point I became obsessed with water. I wanted to go swimming, really badly. Thank god the people with me knew I would have sunk like a rock, and didn't let me go! However, I recall continually thinking of water throughout the night. It was a progressive high that seemed like a continual roller coaster ride, after the first 3 hours. I recall experiencing a multitude of emotions throughout the night. At one point I became very nauseous and had to take a very cold shower. This eased my nauseous but seemed to enhance the three dimensional hallucinations. I actually observed a shirt on a hanger expanding and deflating as if it were breathing. Near 1 a.m. I recall having a panic attack which was triggered by a conversation with my grandmother, who had been deceased some years past. What I mean to say is, that I imagined that I was talking to her. I believe that this may have been a result of scanning family photos a few weeks prior to this experience. I also was aware of feeling alienated from my body. I could not shake the feeling that certain parts of my body did not belong to me. (ugh) The kaleidescope images are the hardest to deal with when you are finally trying to fall asleep. Around 4 a.m. I finally was so physically exhausted from the stress of this experience that I laid down. The whole experience is hard to wrap your mind around. I would recommend getting a full 8 hours of sleep and at least one healthy meal in your system before eating the mushrooms. I would also say that this should be something you don't do on a night before you have to be somewhere to be in the morning. This should be a mind opening experience, which is void of stress. Stress=Bad Trip! I am a moderately healthy, 24y/o female, and I would not recommend eating a large quantity your first time! I would also recommend that this be an experience you share with someone you trust.
