Is it ok to trip when sick?
    #1881839 - 09/04/03 06:35 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hello, im just gettin over bein pretty sick. doctors dont know what i had/have but my throat swelled up a bunch and i had a horrible fever which got up to 104.3. Im startin to get over it, still have a soar throat, but the fever is gone, and i managed to come accross a batch of shrooms. I was curious if i can trip on em tonight or if it would be best to wait untill i was feeling better, despite the fact i have no freezer or anything to store them in. I dont know if there would be any horrible effects from tripping while sick, but i was thinking it could make me feel sicker, since shrooms enhance emotions and such, but i wasnt sure. anyone happen to know anything about this? any suggestions would be appreciated. oh and i do have a quad of dank herb which i can use if i get nausious. thanks a bunch.

It depends on how experienced you are with trippin. I would suggest you don't if you arn't really experienced with psychedelics. If your worried about being sick and its affect on your trip, this could just prepare you to have a bad trip. Physically you would be fine, but you
being worried about negative effects because your sick could set you up for mental disastor. I would just wait if I were you, and don't freeze your shrooms, they will be fine in a cool dark place for a day or two (assuming you mean fresh)

I would recommend a full recovery before you trip.

On my last trip with 2 other friends, 1 was ill he had puked 6 times over the day.. he didnt plan to trip because he was sick but still did it.. he didnt feel much of the mushrooms, yeah a bit but he said the illness was taking over the feeling of the mushrooms most of the time..

Taking drugs when one is sick is an early sign of drug abuse.


But then thats your choice.

Actually its amazing how mushrooms can completly cut through a cold, sure you will notice your ill again when you come down but i dont see how it could make it any worse.
Oh and MJ, wtf are you talking about?

how is it i a sign of drug abuse? herb is very medicinal, would you say aids or cancer patients using it to cure pain are drug abusers? In my case im not using them for any medicinal purpose of course, but when mushrooms show up in my area, which usualy only happens right around now before fall harvest, grabbing them as soon as they are available is the only way to definately get em sense they sell faster than big macs at the end of a hunger strike. Only reason i consider taking em when im kind of sick is because they dont store well for a decent period of time unless you freeze them(from what everyone has told me). and since, as i said earlier, i dont have a usable freezer that is out of the question. so i can either do em sick or let em go sit and possibly go bad.

My friend had a bit of a head cold on our trip, he had a runny nose, that was about it.

During the trip he seriously thought his noise was bleeding, which then caused me to "see" the blood flowing out of his nose, which sort of scared us until we got some light on the situation and saw that there was actually zero blood

Well I think all psychedelics actualy dilate the broncle tubes because of there effect on the sympathic nervous system (sorry for spelling). This just means that they can actually help you breath more easily, if you have the flu ect. But if there is something else thas wrong maybe it isnt a good idea to dose. Because it could cause a bad trip.

If you take them just to get fucked up maybe. I don't think that Shamanism is a sign of drug abuse and they see mushrooms as a medicine. I know it would be different for him seeing as he isn't performing a ritual with a shaman. However they say that most illness is psychosomatic in nature, so therefore perhaps if he were to take them with the belief that they could help improve his health then it just might. I'm not saying that using anything would be a good idea, but psilocybin isn't just any drug.

Well it sounds like you had strep throat , I remember doing some good acid while I had strep throat, and smoking cannabis


and well...........my throat hurt more than ever


but the weird thing is at a certain point I got used to the pain, and not just in a way where I could "take it" but it didnt matter at all

There is a thread somewhere touting great medicinal possibilities of psilocybes, someone can link it, I only read it yesterday so it must be close.

And I disagree with you MJ, I think being sick and doing shrooms have very little connection to drug abuse signs. Why? because nobody would yet consider using shrooms to escape sickness and hold on.. aren't they being proven to have medicinal qualities? No offence MJ, just I don't see the link.

Anyway, for the medicinal qualities of shrooms to come out you do not need a heroic dose, very small will do so if you do trip make it a small dose.

Oh and preserve those shrooms for longer by putting them on a fan, that will deplete their fluid levels and will keep them from degenerating during this time. Once they are near dry (fan has done all it can) you can then dessicate them or alternatively if you are not looking at longer term storage you can probably store them like that for a while. Just make sure you store them with as little oxygen as possible. If they are not fully dry they will decompose though.
