T+ 0:00
300 mg oral Diphenhydramine (pill / tablet)
  T+ 1:10 900 mg oral Diphenhydramine (pill / tablet)
I was bored one Friday morning, so I decided to trip on something. Now, I was trying to go for an OTC since everyone on the streets was out of everything that's 'worth it.' I was looking around and remembered seeing one of the drugs I researched at a local gas station about a week before the trip. I was hoping to go for Dextromethorphan, but my friend said they carded people they thought were under 18.  And I was indeed underage, I was 17. So that drug I mentioned earlier, oh, what the Hell, you know- diphenhydramine. I got 2 boxes of Benadryl, I wanted to try this out after hearing the many nightmarish bad trips people had. I thought, since I was bigger than most people(240 lbs) that I had a natural tolerance to drugs. I mean, I kind of do. Haha. Anyways, I got home, and then this is where it begins.

It is 12 o' clock.

0:00 - Took 300 mg

0:40 - felt a bit jittery, eyes getting heavy

1:00 - This is when I thought 'shit, my tolerance must be too high...' As I was only feeling slightly more 'stoned' than before.

1:10 - take 900 more mg (stupid, I know)
Immediately after taking the additional dose, the effects of the first dose hit me like a train.

1:45 - feeling dead tired, and a bit floaty.

2:30 - eyes going cross-eyed when I'm looking at small text, heard something moving around in my closet. I went to investigate, but saw nothing.

2:35 - heard the noise again, but this time I saw what looked like a baby kangaroo hopping around, it went behind my entertainment center and I never saw it again.

3:?? - I was just lying around, listening to music and just feeling good in general, but then I saw my mother and brother sitting in the chair next to my bed, both of then were asleep. At the time I thought nothing of it, but looking back at it now... Just, What the fuck. They don't live too close, and at the time she didn't have a working car..

4:20(exactly) - I wanted to celebrate the time with a bowl of weed. I don't know why I thought I had weed... Everyone was dry for the last three weeks.

5:00 - still feeling very uncoordinated, haven't seen many visual hallucinations since my brother and mother(aside from breathing walls),as soon as I thought about that, my grandma came in my house, went to the stairs, and starting walking up them, she was cursing to herself... I asked her what's wrong and then she just... Vanished.

5:00-5:30 - I was wondering, 'is it over?' I accepted this. I thought it was over, then I'd think about something completely unrelated, and go back to the 'is it over?' thought.

6:00 - I was definitely feeling better. Decided to get some sleep, maybe an hour long nap. Welp, I woke up 15 hours later. It's been a day or so since this trip. I enjoyed it, but that's because of the hallucinations. If I didn't get the hallucinations, I'd probably only use it once a year or something. Throughout the trip I had this bad nausea feeling...

I rate it 9/10, honestly. Am definitely going to do it again.
