I had done DPH 3 or 4 times prior to the two gram dose, varying from 250mg up to 500mg.

This trip took place in a plain room which my parents would keep me in with nothing but a mattress on the floor. Luckily the room had a connected bathroom where I took the 80 pink pills 5 at a time, gulping them down 5 - 10 at a time chasing them with water from the sink. After taking the pills I went to sit down on my bed to wait for the effects to start, I remember that it wasnít even 15 minutes before I saw the carpet start to move and smoke. That is when shit started getting real. I looked up at the ceiling fan and it had turned into a giant saw blade that was lowering closer and closer to the ground, I was a little concerned about it but shortly forgot about it. Soon after I started feeling sick and went to the bathroom to vomit to find out the only thing that was coming out was blood and what I assumed to be my stomach lining. After that I blacked out until morning.

I woke up to get ready for school at 6am only to find the few items in my room scattered everywhere with clothing coving up most of the floor. I remember my dad walking in and going into my bathroom and reaching exactly to where my vape was, turned out it was a hallucination. After getting ready I walked through my door and tripped on a nightstand that was blocking the door which was another hallucination. After that I confronted my dad on why there was a nightstand in front of my door to learn that there was nothing there. I went outside to catch the bus to school 30 minutes before it even arrived, after waiting for maybe 15 minutes I went back home since I assumed I had missed it. I had to go talk to my dad again telling him that he needed to take me since I missed it, he noticed something was wrong with me when I came back inside where he then started asking me why my pupils were dilated asking me what drugs I was on.

Somehow I got through that conversation with him and he started driving me to school where I would see people or objects in front of the car while we were driving. I would hear him asking me the same question over and over which I would tell him the same thing each time only to get puzzled looks from him since he never actually said anything. We arrived at school where he then had another talk with me about what drugs I was on, I denied everything and went to sit outside the school since the doors were yet to be unlocked. I sat out there on my phone watching YouTube until the doors opened, I walked inside and immediately noticed that I didn't have my phone and went to go find it. I hadnít had my phone in 6 months and never realised that me having a phone was all a hallucination. Throughout the day I was worried that I had lost it along with my wallet which I left at home.

After that I don't remember anything till my 8th period class where I remember doing some sort of worksheet which i thought was a YouTube video, I was tapping on the paper trying to skip forward in the video which of course never worked since it was literally a piece of paper. After that school ended I rode the bus home and my dad immediately drug tested me and nothing showed up luckily. Nothing more had happened after that but to this day 2 years later I canít take pills anymore, nor can I even look at benadryl packaging without my mouth starting to water and taste just like the pills. I donít think that I ever have felt sober since I took those pills, the world around me still seems altered and wrong and Iím left wondering if something in my brain has been flipped like a switch into this false comprehension.
