tripping after a family trauma
    #2124995 - 11/20/03 02:06 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Does anyone here have any experience with tripping after a family trauma? We had an attempted suicide in a very close member of the family (my brother) recently, and I'm hesitant to take mushies for a while. I know that I should not take them until I feel mentally comfortable doing so, but does anyone have any experiences with this? Like, bad trips, good trips, etc. I also considered that a lower dose trip by myself would help me sort through the emotional trauma I've experienced. Any input is appreciated.

Happy Trails!

Trust your instincts. I bet they tell you not to trip.

If you have doubts about it, I would say not to do it.

When tripping, your emotions are amplified. If you are having issues, these issues will be magnified and seem larger than they are. The trip will probably turn bad and be difficult... which isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes a bad trip can be cleansing, but this isn't for everybody. Only you can decide what to do, but if you decide to trip, I would recommend having a sitter with you, just in case. No sense taking a chance of adding another problem for the family to worry about.

if you dont feel any emotional connection to the event anymore, than you should be safe.

Yeah it depends on whether it affected you or not. I'm guessing it did though since you even took the time to write about it. On the other hand if you were like... meh... wouldn't make a difference if he died or not cause we haven't spoken to or seen eachother in 15 years... well... then you'd probably be good to go. But if your thoughts are constantly being consumed by things like "oh my god my poor brother... and my mom and dad are soo distraught right now... i can't believe all this is happening.. i just wish i could escape right now" or anything along these lines, then I would wait a while. In fact...I would wait a while anyways man. If it were me i'd feel kinda selfish just for thinking about tripping (not trying to say you're being selfish... that's just how I'd feel personally). I'd be consumed by cheering my bro up and making him feel loved... It'd be my mission for weeks to constantly be reminding him that he has plenty of things to live for.

Love thy brother.

If you want to get back in the mush saddle I would suggest a low dose with the purpose of set of seeking answers and discovery. This trip should be for the purpose of coming to terms with the tragedy. definitely low dose in a quiet, respectful, seeking frame of mind. If you go in trying not to think about it you will probably end up not being able to think of anything else and you will be in trouble. Go with the purpose of exploring your feelings about it. Hopefully you will be able to feel it and move on from there. I think it will be a powerful experience so be careful.

Definitely, that's what I was thinking. Most likely not going to happen, but a 1 to 1.5 gram dose, in a comfortable setting like the couch in my room. The only intent would be to gain an outside perspective in my own mind of the issue at hand, and come to terms with it.

But like I said, that's most likely not going to happen.

If you are hesitant don't eat them.

Then make sure you have an out in case you need to get away. On the other hand if you are like me you might just decide to deal with whatever comes. Holding your own during a difficult trip under less than desirable settings can be a huge confidence builder once through.

Have you ever been to the edge where you have to decide to either grin and bare it or pop and never come back?

I say go with your gut feeling, if your emotions are very strong right now shrooms may not be a good idea. But if your looking to get over it and heal then they may do the trick, maybe they will make you see the good in what happened i.e. your brother may of attempted suicide but hes still here for a reason. Peace.

As I write this, my mom is in the hospital and the doctors thought they might have amputate her leg. Rest assured that the thought of eating mushrooms would be the last thing on my mind. I kept thinking of what they would do with my mothers leg once it was cut off (now that is a messed up thought for sure). I wouldn't be able to handle that intensified. The up side is that they saved her leg. Now it's time to celebrate with a nice dose of "the boys". I don't think anybody, even if they are extremely strong minded, should eat mushrooms with a heavy bourden. And, I too, am truely sorry about your brother. I hope he comes to grips with whatever problems he is facing.

Well, it depends upon whether you feel like you were somehow responsible for his attempt or not. If not, then you should of course be fine to go live your life. If so, then you need to reconcile yourself. At any rate, be considerate of your family and not add more confusion to the mix. And at any rate, do what will make you the most understanding. Like sometimes a joint used to make me sit back and consider things more. But it also made me a bit out of touch of other people's more common perceptions. What's the real breaks? Understanding too much and then not being understood, or understanding too little and then being too uncaring? It's all a split. Let's just go get a drink and stay cool for now. What say?

I would be thankful that the attempt was not a success. I mean I dont think you should celebrate or anything but atleast he did'nt follow through. I have seen so much death in my lifetime and everytime I wished it could have only been a scare. If you find yourself regualarly depressed from this incident I'd say hold off....but if you feel Ok in general than go ahead with a small dose. Sometimes tripping can be an escape from your emotions too rather than intensifying them. I know with me, depressing thoughts are sometimes pushed a few steps back into my consciousness when Im trippin

Sometimes we need others to tell us what we already know... especially when we have been mentally taxed, such as during a crisis in the family.

Well, last night I took mushrooms again, and had the most amazing night of my life. I was put into another consciousness, and looked at my life and the lives of everybody in the country from many different objective views. Came to many personal revelations and all in all, I'm not sure I will look at life and society the same again.

Thanks for the help, Shroomerites.
