Should I take shrooms?
    #5832312 - 07/07/06 05:44 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I have a pretty severe case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I am very paranoid about many stupid little things and have ridiculous anxiety at all times. I am on a prescription for my disorder...my question is: should I take shrooms or do you think the likely hood of a bad trip is too high? I think taking these would be great but I'm thinking ill be stressing the whole time :frown:
Should I take Shrooms?
You may choose only one
Just try it!
Definetly NOT!
hmmm maybe...

OCD is a condition brought on by anxiety. If you have anxiety, tripping will heighten the anxiety to a point that you may feel uncomfortable and ruin the experience. If you have never had anxiety or a panic attack during a mushroom trip, you may not associate the feeling with your anxiety and may find out you can have some fun.

Remember, anxiety is a state of mind. Nothing starts anxiety but you. You anxiety is an abnormal reaction to a normal situation brought on by behavioral conditioning. You have to stop the cycle. The best advice I can give is to divert your thoughts when you feel anxiety starting. Irrational thought patterns will almost always trigger your anxiety. The most important thing to remember is that you will not die from anxiety. No matter how hard it gets, you will not die.

I recommend you take a good, hard look at the Linden Method and try to wean yourself off the medication. The medication only helps you cope with the anxiety, not stop it from occurring. I used to suffer from anxiety and have found that 98% of my anxiety has stopped because of the aforementioned method.

I wish you the best of luck.

OCD? Damn... Sorry to hear. Im not sure if I would take the chance if I was in your position but Im sure you might be able to make it work if you practice a type of meditation or a ritual to help calm the mood. Maybe some weed will also take off some of the stress. If you have any doubts though in your head you shouldn't trip, but when you know you have finally have nothing to worry about and you feel that you can do it, try it. What does not kill you will only make you stronger.. but I recommend turning your phone off ring to ignore unwanted interuptions, but keep it on and tell a friend just incase you want to call them during.

I don't think enough people understand literally how powerful mushrooms are. It's unlike any other psychadellic.

Do a low dose. There are many anecdotal reports of people helping OCD with low-intensity mushroom trips. Who knows...it may help you. Just remember set and setting.

or you do a really big trip and just face your issues

a big mushroom trip makes you think about everything in your life and in the world

it could really help a lot to make you think about why you are the way you are

or it would be 6 hours of hell

Well, i'm pretty sure i used to have a small form of OCD but i have no idea what happened to it. The first two times i took shrooms i definately felt my anxiety, but the second was better than the first, after i did acid its completely gone.

Maybe these psychedelics acted as a cure for my problem.

I'm in no way suggesting it as a cure to you though, IM NO DOCTOR! :smile:

I'm also pretty sure I have at least some form of OCD, how severe I'm not really sure but its definatley there. It causes me some anxiety, but I can usually control it. I tripped about two weeks ago and since then have really felt a decrease in the OCD stuff. I almost always have to do stuff in 3's, now I no longer feel I HAVE to. I don't know if it was exactly because of the shrooms but the fear dissapeared after tripping.

Start with a low does and see if you can handle it then move on if you decide you can.

thanks for all the advice.

thats what i was thinking...that it some way it could either help the problem, or make it worse. would taking a prescription also not be a good idea to take shrooms? the prescription is for anxiety.

also one question, my friend told me that her friend took shrooms and saw a little migit guy in her trip, and now, even when hes not on shrooms she still sees him! is this possible? im thinking it might be if she took too much. im just worried that something long term might happen...?

yeah i thought that was a bit extreme, so mushrooms cant hurt you long term if you did it...say 1 or 2 times in moderate amounts? ive heard that it doesnt hurt you physically long term but can effect you mentally. this is the one area that scares me about shrooms since I already have enough wrong w/my brain lol.

i don't see why that guy couldn't still be seeing a little midgit guy. i mean its probably pretty subtle, but its totally possible.

anyways, if you do a decent dose i'd say there's a 30% chance you'll be bug out/ 30% you'll be a little anxious but cope with it and get your experiance/ and a 30% chance your normal anxiety will go away.

i'd say you can up your chances of the last one by taking a mild dose of any opiate beforehand.

also, i'd vote for not taking your anxiety meds.

Ok I can kind of relate to you on this one.

I'm bipolar (which was at one point pretty severe) and take medication for it. I voted DEF not until I gave it some thought.

A few things (from my own experiences) I would recommend/try thinking about:

1) DO NOT take shrooms when your OCD is acting up. If you are anxious during the time forget about it.

2) Make sure you are in a good mood. This doesn't mean force yourself to believe you are. Actually feel it.

3) Do not go for high (ego loss) dosages. I only took 2.5g max (Ive tripped 8 times). only one which was "bad" per se. However, until you have you're OD under control I wouldn't;t venture that far. I still haven't simply because I still get depressed every so often and would hate to to have this amplified 200x.

4) if you're a lone person (I personally didn't find being around friends that great for tripping...distracting plus they were more into it for seein' shit). Make sure someone SANE and who will not just FUCK with you is relatively close by.

Hope this helps and good luck.
