Slow Come Up, but Immensely Pleasurable

T+ 0:00
    SSRIs (daily)
  T+ 0:00     Pharms - Diazepam (daily)

I would consider myself a rational scientific-minded young man, with a great interet in mind-altering psychoactive compounds. To this day, I have tried numbers of cathinones such as Hexen (N-ethyl-hexedrone), NDH, 3-FPM and others, though I prefer psychedelics to cathinones and other speed-like substances. I have also tried different cocaine batches insuflation and smoke, so I can pretty much compare my different experiences.

I am currently using SSRIs for depression treatment, it's been about 5 months now, and I also have been taking diazepam daily for about a month now. I also took 3-MMC insufflated for the past 3 days in common to high doses, but today I wanted to try it intramuscular.

You have to note that the combination of this treatment with cathinone substitutes will change drastically the effects, that's why I am taking such an important dose, to try and counterbalance the lingering effect of benzodiazepines and SSRIs.

Context : At home alone, on my couch
I carefully measured 50mg of the crystalline substance with a milligram-scale, dropped it in a small bottle cap and mixed it with about half a milliliter of tap water. I sucked it all using a one-use syringe, filtering through some cotton on top of the needle. I also carefully push the little air bubble out of the syringe.
Method of administration : Intramuscular

t+00 : I inject myself directly in my right arm.
t:+30 seconds : I can already feel the burn inside my arm, my skin around the hole is getting pink and I start to feel a little improvement in my mood.
t+1 minute : I feel the vasoconstriction happening as my fingers and nose get cold. The region around the spot of injection is totally numb, but my arm still hurts.
t+5 min : I would consider the effects to be at their maximum now. I feel super energetic, I often multi-task when on cathinones, I feel very focused and my mood is lifted. I would consider those effects to be at least similar to a small line of average cocaine, but still less important than the buzz you get from smoking freebase.
t+25 min : nothing has changed, my arm doesn't hurt anymore but my fingers are still cold, I can feel that the effects are still here and strong.
t+35 min : the effects are less strong, and I know the comedown is pretty rough.

In conclusion, I think this method of administration might be dangerous for the body as it feels painful.
