Cause after I took it, I walked like this.

Its noon - I took the gabapentin at 9:45, seven 300mg pills, with a soy protein shake made with water and some blueberries. I think it took until 11 before I felt anything. This is my first experience with the substance. Right now I feel like my calves and feet are the bottom of an hour glass. Listening to music.

- At 9:15AM I picked up my prescription for Lorazepam 1mg that I take as needed for anxiety. I rarely take them but figured it'd be a good idea to fill the script before todays experiment. I make collages. I'd been cutting pictures out of magazines for a few hours. Didn't really notice anything until I got up.

- 12:12PM - I'm writing this in real time. This is the peak I guess. My lower back hurts a little. Just remembered that I forgot to take my prescribed Bupropion this morning. I take it twice a day. Ke$ha is on, I want it loud. I feel like I'm moving slow but I know I'm not because the words are coming up at the right speed. I'm gonna grab a beer. I know I shouldn't go out in public because I'm most likely walking funny.
- 12:17 - This feels great. Turning the music up. Walking feels like I smoked salvia but not as heavy. It really feels like I'm a re-animated corpse walking with heavy boots on.
It really feels like I'm a re-animated corpse walking with heavy boots on.
I'm dancing in my chair, I want to move. I can def snap myself out of the slow. Holy shit, I'm ready to move.
- 12:30 - Whoa. Musical Chairs! Thats whats going on. I start and stop like a bad speaker connection. See you later. I want to skate in the house but I lost my rollerblades 12 years ago in a house fire. I'm gonna dance in the kitchen.
- A friend asked me if I want get lunch. I do but I'm not hungry. I want to climb rocks.
- 12:35 - All my actions have normal results but feel exaggerated. I feel compelled to drink but I'm gonna hold off. So far I'd compare this to a salvia experience but real low and stretched out.
12:41 - I've pretty much taken control of this situation. My actions are honest and deliberate.
12:55PM - Took my morning bupropion and a multi vitamin w/water. I'm on a ledge. One side is a glitter throwing party and the other is perfect sleep. I lay down for 10 minutes and with my eyes closed it felt like I could see the inside of a pinball machine before it goes tilt. I'm gonna paste pictures to poster board.

1:45 Coming down. Overall feeling of calm and comfort. Headed to lunch in a minute. Took a Lorazapam 1mg.
2:30 Surprise Chinese buffet for lunch. I ate two plates and green tea ice cream. Fantastic. Then we went shopping and I got some great stuff. It is possible that the Gabapentin opened my mind to new things.
5:00PM Went for coffee and played scrabble. No trouble following the game.
6:15 After picking up my wife (I was not driving), my friend dropped us off and we had incredible sex. She orgasmed twice. Im always good for it though. It may have taken a bit more effort for me to cum but the payoff was mind blowing. We have a healthy sex life and this was the best Ive had in a long time.
6:45PM Almost back to normal.

6:50PM This stuff lasts a long time. Im glad I took the full 2100mg. I was going to only do 900 and then 1200 sometime next week but this was def the way to go.
