DOSE:
T+ 0:00
300 mg oral Diphenhydramine (pill / tablet)
  T+ 0:10 100 mg oral Diphenhydramine (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 205 lb


note: About 8 hours before this trip I had already taken around 150mg with no hallucnations and had just fallen asleep, I woke up after only 3 hours later and didn't dose the 450mg until a few hours later. I can only give a rough estemate of time.


T+0:00 - In preperation of the 'trip' I set up the movie baby drive turned off the closest light too me and left the one over the table on which alled some brightness to get though to me. I took 6 50mg DPH nytol pill for a total of 300mg, I sat down on my couch and waited for the drug to kick in.

t+0:10 - at about this time I didn't think to dose would be enough as I was reading about people with body weights of only 150lb getting mild feelings after 300mg so I took 2 more 50mg tablet and left it at that

t+1:40 - baby driver had finished and I was still getting nothing, so I started the movie from the beginning again.

t+2:00 - At about this time somthing happend that I couldn't forget about, There was this thing moving on my celling, somthing trasparent, as I go to lift my head to get a closer look I noticed that it was what looked like a spider, I can only describe it as something with the exact same color as my ceiling (Which was white) after only 5 seconds of seeing it it started coming down some silk, I staright away out of fear hid under my blacket, I knew it wasnt real, I knew it was just in my mind but I got the feeling of it's presence which is what scared me the most. I hid for 10 seconds and looked back to where I saw it and It wasn't there and the feeling of it's presence was gone.

Between T+2:00 and T+??? - This was just a buch of hallucinations and all of them were spiders, No other bugs, no people just spiders. At the time I was scared and tried to sleep it off in, but that plan didn't work, I just kept my eyes on the TV as if I were to keep my eyes still on something on the wall a spider would manifest out of it, At one point I was looking at this single piece of cobweb hanging above me I kept my on it and I couldn't take it off, And out of nowhere the cobweb ,which was full of dust, went white as if it were fresh and it looked like an invisible spider was jumping out at me without hetation I pulled the blanket over
my head a stayed there for god knows how long after this not much else happened other then the odd invisible spider coming out of the shadows.

T+??? - as I was coming down all the fear I had was going and the spiders would be small and hard to keep track of. For some odd reason I wanted to see the spiders again, I don't know why but I wanted to do it again.

Overall the 'trip' was distrubing but no nightmare, I'm probably going to do it again but I wouldn't say this is something to do often.
